Anyone got a 1/2 windshield, and if you do, have you had an problems with it? Called my dealer today to ask if they were in stock yet, they said yes but they could not sell them until they got a revised bolt kit from AC as the original bolt kits were causing the windshields to crack. If you have one already you might want to check this out with your dealer. I love my cat, but wonder about ACs quality control after hearing this and some of the issues others have had!

It doesn't matter whether they make them or not, they are ultimately responsible for thier quality. And yes it sounds like they have ID'd the problem, stopped selling them and are correcting the issues before getting too many out in the users hands. This is much better than selling them all and denying a warranty claim later.

Didnt say it wasnt their responsibility, it is. When you have outside vendors its harder to maintain qc and sometimes problems wont show till its out to the customer. Which seems to have happened here and ac is fixing the problem it seems. :cool2:

The issue was the clamps. As soon as we opened the package of our first one, I knew we were in trouble. The vendor apparently thought it made for a cleaner looking install. In the real world they were breaking like mad. I have not seen the newly revised clamp design, but they did act quickly.

It does push the wind and dirt over your head, I think it works good and the little woman hasn't complained yet,

is this the 1/2 windows that the AC dealers are selling? Because I have been wondering if they did that all a long, were they have all the bends in them. I'm waiting for my dealer to get one in so I can see if I like it or not. Thats why I was trying to find a straight one, too.

I installed the half windshield last week and it's just been sitting in the garage since then. I went and checked it and one of the clamps is now broken. Guess I need the update
