Front and rear heated glass

Postby Sleeper » Fri Oct 12, 2018 3:47 pm

Dear All
Am pondering the fitment of heated glass front and rear , the three usual suppliers all do them , at similar prices , but are there any differences?

Are the wires ( filaments ) on the surface or in the glass? , are they visible? has anyone any experiences ?

All comments welcome before letting the moths out of my wallet...

John ;)

P.S. Hope to do a roof lining change at the same time and yes,the big alternator will be OK powering them...

I’d be interested too.

Could do with one in the work van ready for the winter.

only reference I have found is on the front one you need to cut a small section out of the rubber for the wires to attach

When its done its done (for now)

Hot water bottle in driver side glove box was an early alternative

I have front and rear heated screens in my saloon, the elements on mine are within the glass.

The rear screen elements are quite visible but on the front you have to look hard to see them. They are quite and easy swap and worth doing if using your Morris in all weathers. The rear helps to maintain good visibility when the screen mists up in heavy rain, cold weather etc. I tend to use the front screen to help defrost the screen and once on the move I never really need it. The screen fitter had to take the wires around the seal on the front screen but it hasn't caused any problems.

I have an alternator and wired the screens through relays to avoid heavy loads going through the switches. Hope this helps,
