Windscreen replacement for your Peugeot 205

The Peugeot 205 has been the saviour of the French car manufacturer. In Europe this model is still very popular. Should the windscreen of the Peugeot 205 that you have in mind be replaced? Or do you need a windscreen replacement for a Peugeot 205 which you are currently driving? Then it's good to know that you already have a new windscreen for your French pearl for just over € 100.

Before we look at the possibilities of after market automotive glass, we look at the sales success of Peugeot, where a classic was created.

The problems with the loss-making Peugeot

Peugeot's roots date back to the time of Napoleon.
It is a car manufacturer with a lot of experience and many different models, but that didn't work out in the eighties. And that had everything to do with the choices the car manufacturer made in the 70s.
Peugeot took over Citroën and Chrysler to build the current PSA.
At that time, Chrysler had the Sunbeam
and Simca
brands, which were immediately merged by Peugeot to form Talbot.
The desired effect was not achieved, Talbot bled money and that would put Peugeot itself in financial trouble.
The offer that Peugeot itself had at that time, was not much either. The Peugeot 104 proved unable to conquer the market (which is why the Peugeot 105 never made it) and the more luxurious models were beyond the reach of the average consumer with the oil crises. The Peugeot 305,
Peugeot 505 and Peugeot 604
were unable to keep the ailing company afloat.

To the drawing board for the Peugeot 205!

Peugeot needed a cheap middle class and especially the price would be important. This resulted in 1983 in the five-door Peugeot 205 which offered (with some difficulty) space for four passengers plus luggage. Already in 1984 the 205 was also equipped as a three-door. The engines that would be developed especially for this model were already introduced in 1982 in the Citroën BX while the Peugeot 205 was still on the drawing board.

It may be clear that this was not due to the engine, but it is particularly striking that the Citroën BX would be an absolute sales success in the Netherlands with 124,000 sales. The Peugeot 205 would also be a sales success with the same engines with 142,000 sales, putting it in second place for Peugeot. Only the 206 did better with 153,000 sales on Dutch soil!

The Peugeot 205 GTi

The GTi version of the Peugeot 205 was launched in 1984. This model would become legendary and is currently in good condition and still worth a lot of money. The special version of the GTi, the Turbo 16 Rally four-wheel drive, became a special story. The car was developed for the rally, but the class in which this model was allowed to drive, was deleted. Therefore Peugeot decided to drive Paris-Dakar
with the Turbo 16 Rally 4WD.
Especially this version of the Peugeot 205 GTi is very popular.

And again a large list of special versions

When Peugeot has a sales success, it chooses to introduce different variants to the market. That's why the Peugeot 205 is available with various extensions in the name. Examples are Roland Garros, Lacoste, Forever and the Color Line.

This version was also released as a van
and Peugeot decided to offer several engines for the car to achieve even more sales. With success, because only the 206 was sold more often and even at this moment many people are looking for a Peugeot 205 as a hobby project.

In 1998 the 205 was taken out of service after 15 successful years.

The second generation of the Peugeot 205

Anyone who knows Peugeot a little will know that there is no second generation possible. Not even with successful models. The third number in the name of the type stands for the generation. In 1998 Peugeot introduced the Peugeot 206 to the market as a successor. And that would be the model with which Peugeot would break all the personal sales records.

When should the windscreen of a Peugeot 205 be replaced?

Are you looking for a Peugeot 205 GTi on the second-hand market or do you have a Peugeot 205 yourself? Then it is good to know when the windscreen needs to be replaced, because this is not always the case with car window damage.

If we look for example at the rules of the national road traffic authority of the Netherlands (RDW), we see that a windscreen replacement is required when there is an asterisk with a size of more than 20 millimetres, or when there is a branched crack in the windscreen. A branched crack is a place where several cracks come together, no matter in which layer of the window these cracks are present.

Does the car window need to be replaced for an occasion? Then this is not a reason to say no. Selling your car directly when the windscreen of your Peugeot 205 needs replacing is really not necessary. New car windows are attractively priced when you choose after market automotive glass.

How much does a new windscreen cost for my Peugeot 205?

€ 109.00

Windscreen Peugeot 205 bronze tinted

€ 129.00

Windscreen Peugeot 205 green tinted, with blue sun shade band

The above prices do not include delivery and fitting. The green tinted windscreen for the Peugeot 205, including delivery and fitting in the Netherlands costs a total of € 209.

Can I replace the windscreen of my Peugeot 205 myself?

Are you a car mechanic or do you have a lot of experience replacing windscreens? Then you can order the new car windows online without installation. You can easily indicate this during the ordering process.

Are you not a car mechanic but are you very technical? Then you can easily replace the side windows of your Peugeot 205. However, we strongly advise against replacing a Peugeot 205 windscreen yourself. This is a job for the experts, because the windscreen has to be professionally fitted. If the windscreen is not fitted correctly, it can come off during heavy braking or may leak.

Why is after market glass for a Peugeot 205 a wise choice?

  1. Same quality as the PSA brand windows
  2. Often made in exactly the same factories as the Peugeot windscreens
  3. Significantly cheaper due to the absence of the brand logo
  4. Can be ordered directly online and assembled within three working days by a professional
  5. Also without ordering assembly if you are a mechanic or garage owner
