    If I were you, would leave it as such.

    Reasons being, There is high probability of damage of dashboard plastic and paint (present below the sealant), while they remove the old windscreen.

    I have witnessed a live windscreen change for my bro's 75HP Punto and my personal take is I won't risk it.

    Finally after lot of thinking I went ahead with the windscreen change under warranty. I should say that its a excellent job by Vecto Motors - Bangalore. Also, the old windscreen was removed and they didn't break it. Since it took 4 days with the election day in between they also gave me a loaner car which was a Tjet.

    I bet you would not have regretted getting the Tjet as a loaner car, subject to you got to drive it apart from the traffic clogged Bannerghatta road.

    HI
    I am facing strange problem with fiat punto.
    My eyes are getting strain and falling sleep after an hour or so after driving, Immediately when I sit for driving and after seeing the windscreen I am facing this issue I faced this problem even when I took test drive in linea and punto as well before purchasing. Dealer told since the design is different from other cars it will take some time to adjust to this design of glass but almost 10 months passed still am facing this issue I never had this issue in my previous cars I10,Indiaca,Icon.Any one faced this type of problem.I am bit worried now why I took the risk and purchased it.

    This is something which I am hearing for the first time. I have done up to 15 hours of continuous driving without any issues.
    Do you face this issue during day time only or both day and after dark?
