I had the windshield replaced on our 2004 RAV L a couple of days ago. Today I realized that the top portion of the windshield wasn't tinted, and only had those black dots (visor frits) in the center by the rear view mirror.

Believe it or not I don't remember if the original windshield was tinted on the top (We have a new RAV so I don't drive the 2004 very often). For some reason I thought there was a strip of green tint across the top. Can anybody confirm this? If so, I'm going back to Safelite and ask why their replacement wasn't tinted. They list it as "Solar-w/third visor frit."

Thanks in advance.

What you are talking about is what glass people call a "shaded" windshield. If you had specified you wanted a tinted and shaded replacement, they might have found one for you. Most cars made in Japan don't come with shaded windshields.

Thanks, JB. I didn't express that I wanted the "shaded" windshield. At least now I know that they didn't goof up with the replacement.
