On the way back from the GNW a great piece of aggregate flew of a tipper and unfortunately hit my screen causing a huge chip. It stayed as a chip for a while then grew legs which are continuing to grow and will inevitably mean a new screen is required. My insurers have asked me to source one a they say they are getting no joy. My excess on the screen is 250.00

Any ideas?

Pilkington would be the obvious choice I suppose although I would have expected your insurers to have contacted them. Still, it's worth trying them yourself. Call 01744 28882 or see http://www.pilkington.com/automotive+international/default1.htm. They made a one-off screen for my Gamma; it's something they do as long as they have the mould available and they must have it for a Thesis.

Paul,
Sorry to hear of your spot of bad (expensive) luck; After I had an accident in my elefantino Rosso the Dealer from where I bought her, Van Dijk Schouton in Rotterdam ordered the parts for me, as Fiat UK reckoned they were having difficulty sourcing a front grille and seat belts with pre-tensioners.
Certainly worth a try if you have no luck with Pilkingtons.

Paul.
Same thing has happened to me I got a new one through Charlie at John Whalleys and had it fitted by the recommended local fitter through the insurance. I suspect it is not cheap!

Not cheap at all, you'd never have guessed no one stocks them (& what a faf) so I ordered it through Mangoletsi- should be here next week, supplied & fitted for 580.65 arghh!

Turns out that on my insurance policy as part of the company fleet and whilst seemingly great value at 850 per year (fully comp unlimited business mileage) there is a condition that as my car is a non standard UK vehicle my excess on any claim including the windscreen is 500.00 (would have "only" been 250.00 on any UK spec car).

Don't tell the missus!
