Windscreen replacement for your Peugeot 605

The Peugeot 605 is one of the few Peugeot models that is completely flop. All problems with the models for the facelift have damaged the image of PSA. Do you need to replace the windscreen of your Peugeot 605? Then the limited sales numbers are no problem, because you can just go to the after market. With us you already have a new Peugeot 605 windscreen for only € 139.

 
Before we look at why this price is so low, we first dive into the black pages of the history of PSA.
What exactly went wrong with the Peugeot 605 and could the facelift reverse the loss of face of this model?

The Peugeot 605: back to front wheel drive

The Peugeot 605 was shown at the Frankfurt Motor Show in the autumn of 1989. The first models were only introduced in 1990. The 605 is the direct successor of the Peugeot 604 and was built on the same platform (similar to that of the Citroën XM), but with a small modification. The Peugeot 604 had rear-wheel drive. For the Peugeot 605 PSA decided to choose front-wheel drive. The Peugeot 605 was only marketed as a 4-door sedan. Other models PSA never made of the 605

At the time of its introduction, the Peugeot 605 was the largest model in the PSA portfolio. No less than 4765 millimetres long, 1800 millimetres wide and 1410 millimetres high. This had its disadvantages. The turning circle of this 'ship' came out at a generous 12 meters. This has everything to do with the large wheelbase of the car (2800 millimetres) that was deliberately chosen. This ensured a comfortable ride, even on less suitable roads. The rear seat was also adjustable in height, so that longer passengers were also welcome on the back seat of this model.

The exterior of the 605 is regularly praised. This flagship has been redesigned by Pininfarina and is exclusively equipped with galvanized iron to prevent rust.

Why did the Peugeot 605 fail?

So far, this model seems to be one of the best models of the French car manufacturer, but appearances are deceptive. The standard versions of the Peugeot 605 were not equipped with ABS and airbags were not something you could automatically count on.

And that wasn't all the criticism PSA got for the Peugeot 605. This model also had to endure a lot in terms of interior and quality. For example, the interior styling was very similar to the interior of the Peugeot 405 and the models from the early years of production were constantly having minor problems, which meant that the Peugeot 605 was avoided by the consumer.

The facelift that couldn't save the model anymore

In 1995 PSA decided to take up the criticism and brought a complete facelift for the Peugeot 605. New engines, more safety with regard to airbags and ABS, rounder mirrors and another tailgate with an integrated spoiler. These models were much more reliable and can even be found on the road at the moment.

For a sales success it was too late. The Peugeot 605 would sell just over 10,000 times in the Netherlands, making it one of the worst-selling models of the French car brand. In 1999 the model was succeeded by the Peugeot 607. This model would be sold even less in the Netherlands.

When should the Peugeot 605 windscreen be replaced?

Do you have a Peugeot 605 in mind that was produced after 1995 or do you have a Peugeot 605 at home with car window damage? It is not always necessary to replace the windscreen immediately in the event of window damage to your Peugeot 605.

The windscreen of your Peugeot should be replaced when there is windscreen damage in the driver's field of vision and this is:

  • A star is larger than 20 millimetres in diameter
  • A branched crack

In the event of other window damage, it is not necessary to replace the Peugeot 605 windscreen directly in accordance with the guidelines of the law. However, it is wise to keep an eye on the size of the damage. Windscreens can tear further with large temperature differences and vibrations.

How can I replace the Peugeot 605 windscreen as cheaply as possible?

Cheap makes you think of a second-hand car window, but it can be even cheaper. If you choose after market automotive glass, you will have a new windscreen for your Peugeot 605 for only € 139. This is cheaper than most second-hand car windows and for a reason. The windscreens that are sold second-hand, are in most cases from the original models and contain a brand logo.

This brand logo makes the windows exclusive, because new windscreens with brand logo can only be sold by the dealer. Since the second-hand price of the car windows is determined on the basis of the new price, the price of used automotive glass is still unnecessarily high. Look what a new windscreen for the after market costs.

€ 139.00

Optional fitting on-site

€ 100.00 (NL) - € 130.00 (BE)

If you choose after market car windows, this has several advantages:

  1. Lower price due to the absence of the brand logo
  2. Same quality as branded windows, but much easier to find
  3. With us you can find and order all car windows online
  4. Installation within 24 hours by certified fitting partners at home or on site

Can I replace the windscreen of my Peugeot 605 myself?

Do you want to replace the windscreen of your Peugeot 605 yourself and are you a car mechanic or do you have a lot of experience with car windows? Then you can order the glass from us without installation. This is easy to indicate during the ordering process. If you are not a car mechanic or garage owner, we strongly advise against installing a windscreen yourself.

Replacing a Peugeot 605 side window is considerably easier and you can often do this yourself. Fitting a windscreen is much more complicated. The car window is much larger and needs to be fitted accurately to prevent it from coming loose or leaking.

Our certified fitting partners can in most cases replace the windscreen within three working days in the Netherlands and Belgium. If you are in a hurry, we can get a specialised mechanic with a windscreen on location within 24 hours for an additional fee.
