    just make sure you keep a window open when they do fit it.

    with that much silicone, you close a door and huge pressure builds up and pops a hole through the silicone, either causing it to leak, or causing moisture to to build around bare metal surfaces, usually where the windscreen blokes have scratched paint getting your old screen out.

    I had this problem in an XF panel van, they put an XG screen in, 4cm difference apparently, so they just compensated with Silicone, windscreen place ended up having to remove my screen fix all the rust around the area, and put in a new screen at no cost!
