Replacement Windshield Availability Problems

Hey guys, can anyone confirm Alfa is having trouble supplying windshield replacements? My car's been sitting and waiting ... and waiting ... and waiting...

Thankfully it's winter and roads are ice and salt most of the time, but still, how hard can it be to get a replacement windshield???

Can any of the resident dealers check with their parts department and find out please?

THANK YOU !

What's wrong with your windshield? Picture? Chip, crack?

I've found that calling FCA and making a formal complaint helps.

The like to use the word, "expedite", way to much.

Yeah, crack, pretty bad, off the car now, waiting for replacement. No photos, sorry. Not sure how those details would help with getting it replaced, but thanks for chiming in.

Interesting, and I'll take it in advisement. I have a small chip on my windshield that I noticed when I washed it Sunday.

Windscreens are available in Italy so it is either your dealer being an ass or your insurance company not wanting to pay the $1200 it costs and trying to get an aftermarket part.
