Windscreen replacement of a Volkswagen LT in case of damage

Over the years, the Volkswagen car brand has chosen to use not only different passenger cars, but also vehicles for the business sector. One of these types was the Volkswagen LT. It was built from 1974 onwards and was eventually replaced in 1996 by a new Volkswagen LT 2 developed by Volkswagen together with Mercedes. Are you the owner of a Volkswagen LT that you use, for example, for your company? And were you, however, confronted with damage to the windscreen during one of your rides, for example as a result of rubble? In that case, we would like to propose an interesting solution for windscreen replacement Volkswagen LT!

The cause of glass damage to the Volkswagen LT

The fact that the Volkswagen LT is a car that has been developed for the business sector means that it is used very frequently. During a ride on the motorway, for example, a stone can fly against the windscreen of your Volkswagen LT at high speed. If this happens it can cause damage due to rubble. This damage can manifest itself relatively innocently in the form of an asterisk, but can also form a crack. In the latter case, the windscreen replacement of your Volkswagen LT is the only option available to you. Is it just an asterisk? In this case, it is preferable to have it solved as soon as possible. After all, an asterisk that at first glance appears to be innocent can quickly develop into a burst, which can increase the costs of solving the damage.

Damage to your Volkswagen LT windscreen can of course also occur in other ways. What about damage caused by vandalism, for example? Someone with bad intentions can very easily damage the windscreen of your Volkswagen LT. In another situation, a shattered windscreen is caused by an accident. In both situations, it is absolutely essential to replace your damaged or broken automotive glass. It is a fact that replacing your Volkswagen LT windscreen is the only solution to the damage in question, but this does not mean that a damaged windscreen replacement is always legally required.

Where does the name 'Volkswagen LT' come from?

The LT behind Volkswagen is actually the abbreviation for 'Lasten Transporter'. In addition to the model indication, the numeric indication is also displayed. An example of this is LT 35. This numeric indication indicates the maximum authorised mass of the vehicle in question. The maximum mass in this case is therefore 3,5 tonnes. In addition, the first Volkswagen LT that appeared on the market had only a 4-cylinder in-line engine borrowed from the Audi 100.

What does a windscreen of a car cost?

When you are dealing with windscreen damage to your Volkswagen LT, you will probably wonder "What does a windscreen of a car cost". The answer to this question depends a bit on your choice for original or after market automotive glass.

  • An original windscreen has a brand logo.
  • An after market windscreen doesn't have a brand logo.

How much does a windscreen for the Volkswagen LT cost on the after market? Between € 119 and € 179, depending on the year of construction, the height of the windscreen and the colour of the sun shade band. For € 119, you have a 92-centimetre high windscreen, suitable for a Volkswagen LT from 1996 to 2006. The accompanying windscreen moulding costs € 20. A new windscreen for a Volkswagen LT from 1975 to 1996 is already available for € 169, a new windscreen moulding costs € 40.

Many people always choose out of habit to buy an original car window when replacing a Volkswagen LT windscreen. That is all well and good, but the fact that it has a brand logo means that it can initially only be sold by authorised brand dealers. This results in a significantly higher cost than is strictly necessary. Fortunately, things can be done differently. By choosing an after market truck window, you choose for a financially much more interesting alternative and that without having to take into account a lower quality. Both types of windscreens are not only produced in the same factory, but also in the same production line. As a result, exactly the same quality is always guaranteed.

Why is a windscreen more expensive than other car windows?

A windscreen replacement of a Volkswagen LT will always cost you a little more money than when you choose to replace one of the side or rear windows. Why is that? The higher price of a windscreen is caused by the fact that it consists of laminated glass. This laminated glass is made up of several layers of glass with a layer of PVB film
in between. This film has an adhesive effect on both sides that is able to hold shards together in case of breakage. This prevents the fragments from falling into the faces of the occupants, thus providing an additional level of safety. This therefore justifies the slightly higher price compared to tempered glass car windows. In the event of glass damage, these will splash into countless pieces.

The price for a Volkswagen LT windscreen can therefore be considerably reduced by choosing an after market car window. However, what about the cost of replacing the Volkswagen LT windscreen?
