    I've heard of it - I'm guessing when you turned rear heated window on?

    Bad luck to have happened twice in as many months

    Ive heard about this on the Leon Mk2 before, something to do with the rear heater elements not turning off! keep an eye on it, and if its not turning off, pull out the fuse!
    sorry to hear about your windows, not a good time of year for it!

    It was a problem with the early builds, was'nt aware it affected newer builds. Suspected it may be secondary to the electrical screen heater circuit - get it checked out. ................................
