    Default HOW......???

    The story is like dis....
    I was drivin normally on my 98 City in Cantt when suddenly i heard a sound of a little blast behind.....
    i looked back n my rear wind shield was all shattered but was still holding on....
    i stopped the car 2 inspect if there was a stone or somethin but it was clean and it was so uniformly cracked in fine pieces.....
    i just remembered that the switch which heats up the rear wind screen 2 clear the mist was still on so i switched it off...

    BUT CAN ANY ONE TELL ME IF IT POSSIBLE THAT AN ORIGINAL WIND SCREEN BE BROKEN LIKE THAT ..... AND IF NOT HOW DID IT BREAK... IF THERE WAS ANY STONE ETC THERE MUST HAVE BEEN A POINT OF IMPACT BUT THERE WAS NONE...!!!

    Some time due to extreme heat or cold window will get shattered.

    Seems to me that the rear defogger was on too long causing the rear glass to get excessivly hot (not usually a problem) but it's possible one drop of water caused such a thermal change int th eglass temperature which caused part of the glass to contract suddenly which woudl make it crack.

    it's like putting ice in a hot ash tray (it'll crack)

    I was driving my Civic in Cannt too and all of a sudden my front windcreen shattered. Not a single person insight so that ruled out any one throwing a stone e.t.c.
    The weather was calm...No extremes. Didn't have the de-fogger ot A/C on. I Am absolutely clueless as to why it shattered. Seems i wasn't the only one subject to such an incident.

    U must be using AC and defogger at the same time.

    BTW as bad as spectra is considered. Its defogger trips ater some time to avoid such overheat.

    Just my two cents worth...

    I think the rear screen was "tweaked" when it was installed at the factory (i.e. twisted or forced to fit in the frame). A bit of temperature change was probably all that was needed to go over the limit and shatter it.

    I think the same thing happened with the first batch of Freelanders in England. They used to "pop" out at highway speeds.
