Roof light has been cracked for a few years,and is not leaking.
Just wondered if anyone had replaced theirs?

if it is they are only held in place by four spring washers - prise them off remove old skylight fit new skylight and then the new spring washers

had to take mine off when the windup mechanism went.

Aye Broms - think this one fits her. If she goes - I will replace although the roof box covers a lot of the light inlet now.

Thanks

Hi glastry

Had to buy a new one think it cost me £69 from brown hills. It's not a difficult job. Brown hills sent me the only windup available the problem is is that the winder bar that the handle goes onto is about an inch and a half longer then the original. Just going to use a bit of 25mm white water pipe to hide it.
