Lotus Exige Side window replacement
Do you need your Lotus Exige side window replaced?
The windows of your Lotus Exige allow you to see where you are going, protect you from the elements - especially that cold rain and wind in winter – and also provide UV protection from the sun.
The side windows can be fixed in place, such as on the rear doors behind the main side window, or be moved up and down utilising a powered regulator or hand crank on older vehicles.
If any damage happens to these windows, they must be replaced to restore integrity to the vehicle, as well as to stop unwanted theft of items or damage to the interior of your Lotus Exige.
On average, a side window can cost between $250 and $500, depending on the style of the window and what is involved in the replacement.
The replacement window may also need to be tinted, at additional cost, to match the rest of the windows in your Lotus Exige.
The windows on your Lotus Exige are typically made up of two different types of glass – laminated and tempered glass. Laminated glass is usually found in windscreens but can also be used for side windows.
However, the most commonly used glass for side windows is tempered. Tempered glass is created by rapidly heating and cooling the glass panel to create a strong, single ply window.
If this glass breaks, it shatters into small, non-sharp pieces to better protect occupants from suffering any injuries. The downside to this is that it is difficult to clean up after a breakage.
Apart from a broken window, there are other reasons for replacing a side window. If your vehicle is fitted with laminated glass, over time it can begin to separate. If it is not replaced and breaks, it could send sharp pieces of glass through the interior of your vehicle.
If the glass is chipped or cracked your side windows will need to be replaced if any irreparable damage has occurred.
Failure to replace the broken side window will make your Lotus Exige illegal to operate, will attract thieves and other unwanted attention, and allow elemental damage to sensitive components inside the vehicle.
It is best to have the window replaced as soon as possible to prevent these issues and return the vehicle to a comfortable and safe place in which to travel.
