    neil.
    Or else the tracks aren't parallel with each other twisting the glass.
    Just a passer by as you might say.

    The pic of the broken glass had most lines of fracture coming from a single point about 6-8" back from the front at the top.

    Indeed, almost like a bullet hole; do you have a grassy knoll close by?

    The glass fuzzy channels arent screwed in. They arent attached at all. The side verticle ones are a nice snug fit in the doors runners. And the top one is just sat in at the moment. Not stuck at all.
    So Im at a loss as to whats caused it. There may have been a stress point when the glass was cut?
    The glass is a loose fit in the fuzzy channels. Slides up and down by hand easily. No obvious twist of frame. And a small amout of twist could be compensated by the loose fit of the fiuzzy channels.
    Further investigation is required....
    If its low n black n shiny n sparkley n loud n spitting fire....... It's probably mine.

    It may just have been a flaw in the glass and it broke due to temp changes?

    So.... another complication. Master cylinder is leaking fluid out of the end. Works the brakes ok. Just leaks out of the end.
    The problem with that, is I dont actually know what it is or who made it. No part numbers or make name. Just that its a 1 inch bore.
    So I cant buy a seal kit. And a new master cylinder to replace it will cost me the thick end of 100 quid! Lot of cash for the sake of a ****ty rubber seal....
    It only has 2 outlets on one side and none on the other.
    So......... Until I fix this problem I still cant drive it.
    If its low n black n shiny n sparkley n loud n spitting fire....... It's probably mine.
