    Had invented a House Golf Game which starts upstairs, winds down the stairs and holes out in the kitchen.
    Having not played for a few weeks, today we decided to replace the usual putter and golf ball with a 3 wood and a toilet roll.

    Was on for a birdie, having reached the kitchen in two shots, however the third went somewhat out of bounds.

    Result: glass over the floor and the external glass of the
    oven in many pieces.

    Its an old oven, 10 years plus and googling has shown up nothing (zanussi zg 952) for replacement outside glass (it is possible to replace the internal glass but thats fine)

    Do you think i could just get some glass cut to size and
    slide it in myself??

    Many thanks

    I broke the glass on my cooker (inside and out) - dropped a hammer whilst the oven door was open. Just phoned up the manufacture and they put me in touch with their service company who was able to sell the part to me.

    Quick 'un

    Surprised me to find the oven was actually 23 years old, so Zanussi were unable to supply replacement glass.

    However after a bit of phoning round and advice went for the diy option of ordering TOUGHENED glass from a local firm.

    Was able to fit it myself at a total cost of 14 quid and everything seems fine (it hasnt exploded yet)

    When Zanussi thought they would be able to replace the glass, they had quoted over 50 quid and wanted 50+
    for fitting.

    So basically, I recommend, if anyone is as stupid as I, fix the glass yourself, and now i have enough left over to buy a new 3 wood
