    I am collecting a hardtop at the weekend incl 'fitting kit' but not the heated rear screen switch.

    I know I will need to source a switch, but should I have the wiring for the screen pre-installed? K on the fitting kit diagram

    I have checked the vehicle data using the VIN and it lists std equipment as hardtop preparation, i haven't physically looked as it is raining too much to put the roof down! :)

    cheers

    Ash, stop being a wuss and put your roof down! :) Seriously though that is probably the only way to be absolutely sure whether your car is pre-wired or not. Unless someone knows differently?

    Sorry, no idea, as mine came with the hardtop.
    But I have read here and there that the wiring should be there.
    I have a heated rear screen but have never used it, the wing mirrors defrost quick enough for me.
