Rear Windscreen Replacement

Back Windshield Replacement

When assessing the most appropriate approach to carrying out car window repairs, there are several things our auto glass technicians must take into account. These include the extent to which the car glass has been damaged and where it is located. Our technicians strive to provide the most efficient and economical solutions to our customers and therefore will opt to repair the car window whenever possible. As well as being cheap and easy, car window repairs are more environmentally friendly than car window replacement as less raw materials are required.


Despite striving to provide the most economical, efficient and environmentally friendly solution possible, when it comes to back windscreens, it is most likely that a full rear windscreen replacement will be required. There are several reasons for this, including the fact that rear windscreens are made of toughened glass and often contain heating elements. 


Rear Windscreen Replacement Process

First of all, our technicians will be sure to remove any shattered glass remaining inside the car, before covering the car’s interior to ensure its protection during the car window replacement procedure. Once this is completed, it’s time to remove the glue which holds the existing back windscreen in place. After this, the technician can carry on with the rest of the rear windscreen replacement process and put in place the new glass.

How To Replace a Rear Windscreen


Unlike front windscreens, rear windscreens are made from toughened glass which means that any significant impact will cause the glass to shatter. To drive legally on UK roads you will need to get the entire back windscreen replaced as soon as possible.


  1. A glass technician arrives at your location
  2. They thoroughly inspect the vehicle for existing damage
  3. The back seats are covered and the vehicle paintwork outside the vehicle is masked off to prevent any damage to your vehicle
  4. The glass technician uses a special tool to remove the seals of glue holding the back car windscreen in place
  5. A primer is applied to the vehicles framework and the new back window glass is fitted matching the original equipment manufacturers (OEM) standards.
  6. The primer is then allowed to dry and any original fittings will be replaced along with the windscreen wipers.
