Seems like the glass seal has tucked in underneath. Can you use a tooth pick or plastic trim tool to pull it out? Otherwise, the glass might be sitting a bit low, not pushing the seal up high enough.

Pilkington is one of the major glass manufacturers, so quality should be good. Not sure who the original manufacturer was, but could very well have been Pilkington.

Main glass manufacturers I would trust:
Pilkington
Saint Gobain
Fuyau

(Sure there was a 4th, just cant remember the name now.)

Good luck and hope you get it sorted!

You can pick it back up but it just eventually bends back in again, to me it looks like the glass is sitting too low and doesnt have the right curviture.
I am taking it back to them tomorrow morning and i will request an OEM screen as to be honest that's all I will be happy with... "like for like" and all that.

I had mine replaced by NW. It was a Fuyau screen.

I took it to the depot (Trafford Park). The guy did and awesome job, no issues whatsoever.

I feel your pain!!

8 years ago Autoglass replaced my S2000 screen, and the mirror boss is not correct on their aftermarket screens.
After several attempts at getting it sorted I finally gave up and traded the car for another S2k.

A couple of years down the line I had a chip in my field of vision on the new car and my insurers (Churchill at the time) said Autoglass would renew it minus £75 excess.
I explained that they used the incorrect screen on my previous car, but was assured that they would do the job correctly.

I knew I was heading for a long drawn out battle with Autoglass, so I logged each and every phone call, e-mail, promise and failure.
The document runs to 8 pages so I won't bore you with the details.
Suffice it to say that on the third attempt they finally fitted the correct screen (Honda OEM) but they re-used the rubber seal from the previous fitment which bubbled and opened up in 4 places.

Churchill paid me 2x £50 payments due to the complaints, and I refused to pay the £75 to Autoglass.

I then, with the permission of Churchill, (who were brilliant throughout the 3 months this took to sort) took the car to a local windscreen fitter who fitted a new Honda screen and rubber.
I paid up front for the job and 'Dianne' at Churchill who was trying to deal with the case, reimbursed me fully.

Hope you get it sorted buddy, but you may need to fight for a good solution.

I'm having mine done by auto glass on Wednesday...I mentioned having OEM and the girl said I would have to pay the difference, but if I wasn't happy with the one they fit then they would look at changing it under their warranty...watch this space...uurghh!!
