Building a crossover wasn't in PSA's blood. Therefore the Peugeot 4007 was set up with help from Japan. However, the Peugeot 4007 would never be a huge success; less than 34,000 models were sold in Europe. Do you have a Peugeot 4007 with window damage and does the windscreen need to be replaced? Then you can go to the after market, where new windscreens for the Peugeot 4007 are already available from € 149.
Before we look at the possibilities of replacing a Peugeot 4007 windscreen, we first take a look at this special collaboration, which resulted in a car with a very special nickname: the plankton eater.
Then collaborations are sought. PSA found it on the other side of the world, in the person of Mitsubishi. It is no surprise that the Peugeot 4007 therefore has strong similarities with the Mitsubishi Outlander. By the way, the Citroën C-Crosser was also born out of this collaboration with Japan. Nice fact: the Peugeot 4007 is the first French car on the Japanese market.
There are few differences between the Peugeot 4007 and the Mitsubishi Outlander, except for the enormous grille to which the car owes its special nickname. If you sit behind the wheel, then only the logo on the steering wheel is different. The seats are identical to those of Mitsubishi and there are few differences in the design of the interior.
If we look under the bonnet, we find a 2.4 litre petrol or a 2.2 litre diesel - but not just any diesel engine. It's the HDi engines that have been a great success at PSA and that are also used in the Land Rover Freelander and the Jaguar X-series. The petrol engine isn't reserved for the 4007 either. This is the result of a collaboration between Peugeot, Mitsubishi, Daimler-Chrysler and Hyundai.
The Peugeot 4007 has been sold less than 34,000 times in Europe. In fact, the counter was stuck at 33,849 copies and therefore it was not a sales success. But did the model fail with that? Opinions are divided on this.
Admittedly: the new price of the model was far too high and the prominent nose of this car made it to all the magazines at the time. And with the critical comparisons between the 4007 and Outlander that was not a good sign. The Peugeot 4007 was also very poorly featured in the advertisements for the type:
What we must not forget is that the 4007 is Peugeot's first crossover. It's the very first time that a crossover model with a Peugeot logo has appeared on the streets. For Peugeot, the collaboration seems to have been successful in view of the knowledge and experience gained. The collaboration has been followed up: the Peugeot 4008 was introduced in 2011 (sales started in 2012), but this type never ended up at the dealers in the Netherlands. However, it was introduced in other European countries.
In the event of car window damage in the driver's field of vision, the windscreen has to be replaced, but not in all cases. We look at the type and size of the windscreen damage. According to the law, you are not allowed to continue driving if you have windscreen damage in the driver's field of vision, if:
Is this the case outside the driver's field of vision? Then you are allowed to drive on. However, it is wise to keep an eye on the extent of the car window damage. In case of large temperature differences, an asterisk or crack in the windscreen can tear further.
A side window replacement is a job for the handy handyman with enough tools and a dry workplace. Replacing a Peugeot 4007 windscreen is the work of an expert with the right experience. If a Peugeot 4007 windscreen is fitted incorrectly, it can come loose when you brake forcefully. It can also leak, causing damage to the car's interior and electronics.
Since a leak often causes water to run down, the moisture leaks into the car in a place where you don't see it. This often causes a lot of damage before you notice the musty smell in the car. Doing the car window replacement yourself is therefore only recommended if you have experience with this.
Are you not a car mechanic and do you have no experience with replacing windscreens? Then you can just order a new windscreen including installation. In most cases, our certified fitting partners will install a new windscreen in your Peugeot 4007 within three working days. Are you in a hurry? Then you can place an express order, after which we will provide a new windscreen in your Peugeot within 24 hours. It is also possible to replace the car window on-site.
What does a car window for a Peugeot 4007 actually cost? If you choose the dealer, you pay the main price. The price of a second-hand car window is also often unnecessarily high. If you choose after market automotive glass, you can already order a new windscreen for € 149. The difference between the two types of car windows: the logo.

Branded windows have a logo. This brand logo doesn't actually do anything for the windscreen itself, but it does ensure that these windscreens can only be sold by a PSA dealer. After market automotive glass does not have a brand logo, but meets the same requirements and is made in the same factories as the Peugeot glass. But because there is no brand logo and no exclusivity in terms of points of sale, the price of these windscreens is much lower.
If you choose a new windscreen including installation, you can have it replaced anywhere. Our certified fitting partners can replace the windscreen directly at your home. But they can also do this on the parking lot of your work or at another location where you need to be at that moment. For example, having a Peugeot 4007 windscreen replaced is always possible, even when you are particularly busy.
Isn't it an option to have the car window repaired because the window damage is already too big for repair, and doesn't the windscreen meet the requirements of the law? Then have the windscreen of your Peugeot 4007 replaced by an after market windscreen that you can order for € 249 complete including fitting. Within three days you will again have 100% visibility through the windscreen thanks to our certified fitting partners.
