Gob smacking development... from senior Autoglass rep. Because the metal clips are frequently damaged on the overhead console and clips are not part of the screen replacement package... using the black screen glue is their APPROVED process!
Definitely worth getting the insurance company involved - that’s a rubbish answer!
“ yeah, our guys always break stuff, so we give them a tube of gunk!”
“ approved process” my @rse! Approved by who!? Not Porsche, that’s for sure!

Actually this stuff came on a roll ;)

No... just approved by Auto-ass HQ. So not a rogue fitter.

Oh also because the console cabling has a retaining clip it is suitable to leave it hanging by it.

Nope. They've said they'll pay for any rectification costs. Hopefully Porsche Cambridge can locate where my internal lights have gone...both the rear reading & front vanity mirror ones.

Well this replacement screen is now cracked! Will get OPC to conduct the replacement from the start this time. Just complete the 2200miles to the intermediate service. Going to try Clearplex on this one.

I hope you have a better luck this time! Perhaps it's a blessing in disguise that the replacement screen is cracked and it all has to be re-done properly now.

I have just come accross your story with Auto-Glass, what a shocker! :shock:

Indeed...wonder if they order clips now. OPC very reasonable in costs and only had to recoup £93.88 from Autoglass
