it was not on...with the gas strutts and the hinges bolted through glass autoglass sent a manager out to assist him fit the window as thay have had them go while fitting.they said it is a design fault and if yoe are on rough roads as i am with the dogs daily (country track) then the flexing of the chassis will find any weakness and the struts will blow out the window.....a very common job for autoglass so they say......cheers
