Doesn't make much sense to me, I've used autoglass and you simply pick which screen type you need when arranging replacement, they came with requested heated one and fitted it to my car no problems at all, even though wiring wasn't even present at the time, guy that fitted it said as far as I'm happy with it they don't care at all and I never even talked to insurance, they sorted everything their end.

Oh Vince you twisted my arm! I'll private message you :) . I would certainly like to be putting a new screen in this year, at some point. Can't see the point in putting a non heated one back if there is a chance to upgrade it, not that id ever drive the kitten on a less then perfect day mind!

While we are on the subject, what is the story with the button for the front heated screen, hens teeth? Or operated from the rear screen button? Assuming this is all plug and play. Katar it was your thread I was referring to thanks for the idea ;)

Heated screen is amazing in winter, I love mine even if it only sees any use ~10 times a year :lol: Re button I'm not sure whether it has a separate button or not in a 40, I think Larry has a heated screen so he should be able to tell us. In my x300 there is a separate button for it in the AC panel. Funny thing is that ALL panels have it internally, switch is there inside and its operational, it's just the actual plastic button bit is missing on non heated screens versions of that panel :roll:

you will need to change the heater control panel for one with the top button which is split into two switches, one being the heated screen , it does only remotely operate the relay ( timer relay ? ) mounted in the left passenger footwell, the main feed plug is already there and wired in every '40 , just connect this loom, pass through the bulkhead in front of the passenger footwell, and route along the bulkhead in the engine bay ,

the two squarish ' cut-outs ' in the screen scuttle on either side is for the loom with rubber seal to sit into , this is there on your new panel , and was ' sealed up ' on your old panel,

you could rob a signal from the rear screen heater relay to switch the front screen one until a proper heater panel with switch is found

well put it this way ,

i didn't lie to my insurers or screen company when asked what it was...

and on insurance renewal, when i declared i had claimed for a new screen ( as you must even if it is covered ) the renewal actually went down by another tenner....

I feel like a thug, will be replacing windscreen for the fourth time(was messed up once by autoglass) on this car, probably later this year, neither insurer ever asked me about windscreen and neither it was an option to pick from(they didn't ask either) when they quoted me... :lol:

Anyway, it appears that the AC panel is still available new from Jaguar at £187, part number DBC11815 is the one you need. Maybe Naki might have a spare one and I'm wondering whether the internal switch is in the non heated windscreen too, like on the x300 panel, its next to demist so who knows, might be there already.

Sorry if I'm being a bit slow here, it has been a rather long day I suppose. My car has air con fitted does this complicate things further? I'll have a look what spares I have you never know what's lurking in the loft. I'm sure Naki will have some advice when he logs on.

Pretty much just talked myself into doing this while the dash is out :roll:

Ah that makes much more sense, thank you. Certainly handy knowing they have them at JCP. You guys are going to get me in trouble. :lol:
