Alpine 110 Pure - Cracked windscreen

Postby del115 » Sun Jan 05, 2020 4:12 pm

A lot of posts on this subject on the French FAR forum and today I had the misfortune in having to join in.
Today I have noticed a large crack (6 cm) at the bottom left (viewed from the front) edge of the windscreen.
Above the black edging where I assume it is affixed to the car.
An issue known to Alpine and apparently a warranty issue but disappointing none the less. :down
I purchased the car (ex Demo) in October but car was built November 2018 and has done at the moment a meagre 4500 miles.
Hopefully a phone call to my Alpine centre tomorrow will set wheels in motion for a replacement.

Sorry to hear that- with it being a known issue hopefully there will be windscreens in stock so you won't be too inconvenienced. Do Alpine actually fit them or is it one of the national windscreen places?

Excellent response from the dealer - Martins, Winchester.
Part ordered Monday, arrived yesterday and car booked in for 20th.

The work will be carried out at the dealer premises.
Not sure if this is by their technicians or an 'outside' windscreen specialist.
Either way I am happier that they will be over seeing the work.

Might be an idea, whilst the screen is out, to ask Martins to investigate for any rough edge or foreign object which may have initiated the crack, otherwise it might happen again.

Just a thought.
