<br>Because the dealer broke mine doing the wiper arm recall. Guess that rock chip we got in Sweden<br>will be gone too!!<p>Wanker tech must have used the tool wrong, can even see the tool marks in the plastic cover where the mutiple cracks orignate.

Re: I get a new windshield!!! (t6tim)

<p>You bet!! I will verify it says Volvo on it before install. It needs to have the wiper sensor in it, wonder<br>if there are aftermarket ones.. Thanks for the heads-up... They broke a OEM, and that is what will<br>be installed.

oh yes, they make aftermarket w/ rain sensor ports. Atleast they do for my S80. Recently my insurance company wanted to have some after market safelite brand installed when I made a claim. I asked for oem, it was approved, and thats whats there now.<p>Tim <IMG NAME="icon" SRC="http://www.vwvortex.com/vwbb/embeer.gif" BORDER="0">

Re: I get a new windshield!!! (t6tim)

<br>In the shop today for windshield replacement. I asked to see the glass b4 they install, it was in a Volvo box and i checked the glass and it had the Volvo markings on it. Let it sit and dry at the dealer tonight and will get it in the AM.<p>Lets hope this is the last trip, should have only been a single trip to get everything done, this trip makes three...
