    No fan on just the heated screen.only the passenger side worked after fitting .both sides work now. Backed it into the sun for an Easyjet de-ice,once sat on a plane that was pushed back from stand into the sun for 20minutes. Every penny counts.;)

    It should still clear the screen all the way up as the heat the whole screen up as one not just start at the bottom.
    i may have a couple off wires not working but it was only on for very little time.

    Nice Rangie @tomcat59alan, same colour as mine. :)
    I used the "PROG" defrost function today and the packed snow just slid off the screen after a few minutes. :)
    Parked it back in the same spot after doing the weeks shopping and reconnected the Ctek charger (every little helps).

    Thanks Dan,I never used the prog button, I wasn't going anywhere just wanted to check both sides of the new screen worked. Moved it into the sun to clear the car,I'll go and put it in the garage now so I don't have to wait for the screen to clear on Friday, early hospital appointment. ;):D
