Hi all, i purchased a 22 plate off the forecourt 13 days ago and it was meant to have a heated screen, the button is there and it lights up, but for the life of me i can't see any elements in the screen and it certainly doesn't get warm.

Tomorrow is my 14th day and the last to reject the car, do you have a heated screen and are the elements visible? i've jusr driven a 2022 Astra and the are.

Thanks

Hi
If it has a heated windscreen you need to look closely at the screen and you will see very fine elements all down it, they are not obvious unless you look closely

I find the easiest way to spot them is with the car facing the sun, they give off a rainbow-ish colour.
Hope this helps

Thanks for that, i've just gone back to my dealer and confirmed that my car must be a misbuild, it has the buttons for a heated screen but plain glass. they'll have to replace my windscreen or take the car back.

Hi shaun65
Keep us updated as to what the dealer says, as never heard of a misbuild before?

Misbuild is just jargon for using whatever parts are lying around to complete the build.

Looks like i'll be going for a 14 day refund, the dealer sent me a pic of another Grandland windscreen and swears blind that the 4 lines alone on the left of the screen are the only heater elements for the whole screen, more like a DAB antenna to me.

I had my windscreen replaced a few weeks ago, I had to wait a while as there were none in the country. The chap that fitted it said the same as you, the four lines are the DAB antenna. Mine is also heated, but I can't see the heating elements at all.
