Screen Delamination

Anyone elses heated screen got this in the corners. Caterham say its common doesnt affect MOT or screen function. What do you think.

Never seen that before now on a 7 though I guess it will happen with age. 

Whether it's common or not it isn't right and a two year old car shouldn't be sold with it, are they asking you to just accept it?

My 2014 car has this in the corner of the passenger side at the bottom, it's a very small area and been like it since I got the car in 2017, it's not noticable unless you look for it. Doesn't effect the heating- demisiting. It's not grown at all either.

I had it on a replacement screen (along with a good 20% of the heating elements not actually working). Screen company offered to replace it if it got worse but I figured another replacement was likely to be just as bad.

When I bought the 420 it had a large chip in the screen and I asked CC to change it but they would not put a new one in but would find a better screen, which they did which as a slightly milky bottom. Although it is covered by the wipers.

It works and clears the screen without a problem.

Surely on a new screen you'd insist they replaced it with one without faults?

EDIT: I see the reply feature is still broken (this isn't a replay to the previous post)

A car I borrowed last year from Gatwick, when mine was in for a service, had the same "damage". 
 

That glass effect looks very similar to when I accidentally ruined/delaminated some glass on my french doors using a pressure washer with the wrong nozzle (high pressure) attached. Yikes

Sorry I can't recall the actual car I had that time (I've been loaned a number of cars over the past 3 1/2 years, never the same one), however I don't think the damage in the car I drove was as extensive an area as your example, judging by your pictures,

re getting another new one - I'd waited 3 weeks with the car off the road, was imminently going on a euro road trip so didn't have time. When I got back I figured I could live with it, and there was no guarantee another new one would be any better (I can't remember if the delamination was there from new, it was a couple of years ago. But the faulty elements definitely were).
