    My windscreen rubbers are starting to split, bubble and rust.
    Is there any way to replace these with out removing the screen?

    The screen is covered in chips, scraches and marks and got a feeling something might cause it to crack on the way home one day, if this happen and if i have to remove the screen to fit new rubbers.
    Is something I can ask the window guy to do or will I have to do it inbetween him fitting the new screen?

    Do you mean the strips to the side of the screen? (sorry pics are blocked at work).

    If so these simply clip in place and don't actualy hold the screen at all as that's bonded in

    Side and top.
    Sides are starting to go a bit nasty, the top is rusting and bubbleing. I'm a bit paranoid that it will start effecting the paint around them.

    I've not uploaded any pics but can if people really wants to.

    The sides are just climped in, push fit style?

    When your screen cracks (oops!) you can claim on your insurance and the replacement will come with new rubbers - or at least mine did.

    When it 'cracks' I'll ask them when I phone up.
