Snatch Land Rover, water trapped between armoured glass

Recommended Posts

I’ve just purchased a Land Rover snatch. Does anyone know how to remove the water between the armoured glass on the front windscreen for MOT preparation.

Many thanks guys. It’s a bit of a nightmare. The armoured glass is bonded in. I will try to get it removed to see if I can split the glass to clean it and get the water removed without damaging anything

Unless you're expecting to be shot at I'd be tempted to remove it and get a commercial vehicle windscreen place to cut you a new screen from regular glass and just space/pack the surround to hold it in.

Once water gets in the layers on laminated screens it's not going to come out, and I'm assuming the bulletproof ones contain a lot more layers.

You could probably get a lump of suitably thick perspex/polycarbonate cut out but it has drawbacks (scratches and goes foggy with age) and would be pricey.

Many thanks. I will speak to a specialist glazer and get a price to cover the glass for the front screen. The driver and passenger glass is clear. Need to square the glass away for mot. 👍🏻
