I have been looking at these espace windscreen surround on any I can find and so far 2 split and 1 intact.
Am I right to assume if these screens are bonded on then the rubber surround being split would not cause leaking?

Hi Mark yes i would of thought so but not necessarily because the screen is also bounded down as well but as i said it could break its bound causing water increase iam sure someone else will add there thoughts cheers Donald
