Hi all, I was andering if anyone else had this problem and knew anyways of sorting it out. At the top of my window pains I have a discolourisation between the two pains of the double glazing which does not look very nice when the windows are part way down. Does anyone else suffer from this problem? Is there any easy ways to solve it?

Thanks
D

As I understand it there are to makers for the glass, one is OK and the other does what you have got, this has come up once before, and it may come up on a search

Am curious, since it is double glazed is it a sealed unit?

Only by replacing them and they are not cheap.

Yes they are a sealed unit, it helps to deaden the sound from outside

A sealed unit usually has a desacent( silica gell) in an aluminium spacer bar between the glass to absorb any moisture trapped within the unit. A unit will fail when this becomes saturated, usually resulting in binning and buying a new one.
Is it not possible to seperate the two panes of glass,clean them up and take it to a company that makes sealed units for double glazed windows? would be cheap since the cost of the car unit is expensive?

One could always ask, that cost nothing

what im saying is that a unit can be resealed without any problem. they use a sealant at 245 deg. C. to seal the unit. cant see anyone charging more than a tenner..
the problem or hard part could be whether the unit in the car can be cut apart?

from the edges you cannot tell that it is double glazed
