    I've just had an absolute disaster.

    I've just put the roof down, heard a crunch and rookie mistake I'd left something in the boot.

    My back window is shattered.

    Does anyone know where I can source a replacement from.

    Thank you. I am so embarrassed!

    Section I3-5 of the Chassis Service Manual, describes the removal/fitting instructions for that glass. Looks like it's bonded in.
    You'd need to get a glass fitter to remove the window from the second hand roof section (if you buy one of them) & refit it into yours.

    Have you approached your insurance company about claiming for it?

    In the mad panic and horror, I didn't even think about insurance! The strange thing is, the blind bit was across. Perhaps it wasn't in firmly enough. I will check (amongst the bits of broken glass).

    Thank you (as ever) for your help!

    When you put something in the boot, you need to re-tract that blind. This disables the roof. So if you forget something is in the boot the roof operation won't work. Only when the blind is fitted into it's retaining location will the roof operate.

    I had no idea about the blind stopping the boot operating - brilliant tip, thanks Adam.

    I'd not call that a tip, but standard practice, a requirement.

    Have you not had the car long or just been lucky previously not to have lowered the roof with something in the boot?
