    Hi

    Does anybody have any information on how to fit a roof screen ?

    Just looking into whether it will be feasible for me and not to tricky.

    A copy of mounting instructions, online or by email would be great !

    Thanks in advance.

    Ok, 2 types of screens and tbh each to their own.

    Anyway anything "light screen can be "fixed" to the head lining.
    Anything larger then 2 types of fixing

    1) remove lining and "glue bracket" to chassis of roof leave for 24 hours and this normally works

    2) glue some ply to the roof lining and screw screen to timber.

    I use the black stuff windscreen fitters use to secure screen to car.

    i fitted one of these to my peugeot 406.
    you should have a metal plate that youneed to cut the headlining and slip this in then the screen screws into the pre drilled holes in the metal plate meant to say you will need to feet th ewires through first.
    The way i done this was removed the plastic from th eB-pillar (in between the front and rear door) feed the wires through best attatch them to a straightened out wire coathanger or equivelant and pull them out the hole you will have cut for the metal mounting plate now you should be able to connect the av and power cables to the screen then screw it to the plate.

    then connect the power wires to the source and the av cables to whatever you are using the screen with.
