Here's a video showing HOW TO in 15 minutes; shouldn't take most people more than an hour:



Enjoy!

Took me about an hour, and that included thawing my fingers out several times.:lol:

This is me with my Steptoe gloves on!

An hour is not bad, especially with cold fingers...lol

Hope you you got a good price for your, nice and clean, old screen?

Hi,
Thanks for the response.
Does the MGF come with the circuit for the rear heated screens?
I saw your video, where you simply plugged in, so, was just wondering if the circuit is already there in my car.
Is there a way to check this?

The wiring is already there. You just need a relay and a switch.

Relay goes here in the fuse box under the steering wheel.


The relay is a standard automotive relay like this.

I bought mine at the show and cos it was busy I couldnt convince Peter to go and fit it!!!! Thanks for the rivet gun though.. I do have a slight issue with mine though. The connector for the heated screen is different to the one I have fitted on the other end.. So, my question is.. Are the wires on the screen itself positive and negative? Or doesnt it matter which way round they go? (if that makes any sense to anyone other than me!!!)

I also found the connector looked different from the one in the car, but when I tried it, I was able to connect them without issue.
Just try to push one into the other!:lol:
To answer your question - one connection is to positive one to negative. It doesn't matter which way round.

I tried to connect it, but, the original one has a bump (tech term!) on the side of it, which wont fit inside the other bit :blink: If I get time tomorrow I will take some photo's and show you what I mean.. I am not sure that the one that is on my car is 'original' if it is, then its probably about the only thing that is lol
