Oh yes! There's a run of spot welds in the boot floor. Check that none have popped as they hold the diff mounting in position. Quite an expensive repair if the fail. More common to go on the more powerful engines.

Your no claims will be unaffected on a glass claim although they may charge you an excess fee. I doubt if they can repair that being straight in the line of vision. Personally I wouldn't want a repair there as you will see it all the time and it would annoy the hell out of me.
