Front screen repair
« on: February 23, 2020, 08:22:56 am »
We had to change our front screen as it has been damaged and had a crack on right corner. As we need to take our care for a first MOT I have called the insurance company to claim and sort the repair out. They gave me a company details then my wife took the car last Friday. To be honest I'm not happy with the outcome at all. What is your opinion? I'm thinking to make a complain, this is not a job what I can expect.

Please read the following quote from the Forum rules which can be found here  http://mazdacx5forums.co.uk/index.php?topic=64.0


Update as of 29 Sept 2015


Unfortunately the use of the attachment function to post pictures is once again dramatically on the increase. 

Up until now, I have been converting these attachments into IMG files as per the instructions above and reinserting them in the topic. I have been doing this for some time, but it has now become a daily occurrence. Obviously the message has not got through.

This has to end.  It is with regret, that henceforth, any further pictures added into posts as attachments will summarily removed, to abide by the reasons given above.

If you want to include a picture, please do not use the attachment function, but use a hosting site as suggested above.

Thank you.

That’s pretty poor looking at the photos. I’d definitely be complaining about that. I have had occasion to complain about a glass fitting job previously with Autoglass (not on a CX5) and found them reasonable about it.

To be honest I think that might leak, go back to the insurance company with pictures and ask them to sort it out, that's what you pay them your premium for.

Totally unacceptable repair. Looks like it might leak and if left like that would definitely give you problems at trade in or resale. Go back to your insurer.
