Re: Renault Laguna II - Phase 1 - Bodywork - Rear Screen Failures on Sport Tourer Ver

Replying on Laguna thread as there are more posts relating to rear window failures.
This applies to Espace IV 2.2 Turbodiesel 2004
Rear window failed today and appears to have exploded outwards, due to debris pattern and shape of remaining, crazed but intact glass. Vehicle unattended at the time and rear screen heat had not been used for 6 months and not used on day of occurrence. No evidence of attempted, unauthorised entry or foreign object damage. glass crazed completely, including on and outside of bonding line; in fact glass outside bonding line had just disappeared. Otherwise there was a large central hole on the window and the glass around the rear wiper drive was largely intact for a radius of approx. 2 cms.
Has anyone experienced similar on this vehicle, is it a known fault, is it common and how have Renault UK or your local dealer responded?
Any information would be gratefully received.
