2007 montego windsheild problem

I recently had to change my windshield and ever since i had it changed i seem to see the reflection of my dashboard alot to the point that i dont even want to drive anymore is this normal. Maybe there is a defect in the angle of the dashboard and windshield or maybe its the windshield.I had them change it 3 times still the same problem.Please help and plus whats the exact numbers and logo on the original factory windshield.

Re: 2007 montego windsheild problem

Maybe it's just shines more than the old one and reflects easier. I've been getting a black carpet from Walmart and cutting it to fit the top of the dash. I've done it with the last 4 cars. Since I did the first one I was bothered by the reflection in the rest. Now I do that first chance. The windshield is part of the body on the newer cars. There's no way to change the angle. It's glued in to the body and has to set before even moving the car.

I don't know how unless you find a like car and see the Ford logo. Maybe try a windshield place.

A Ford windshield will either have the Ford logo or "Carlite" on the glass, somewhere on the bottom. Don't know exact location for Montego.
