WOF and window winders

Just another wof question. Does a car need to have a drivers side window that winds down to get a warrant. it is a two door car. I need a wof and just remembered several months ago that the power window thingy packed up and I jammed the window closed.

As long as the saftey standard etching is visible, It doesnt need to open/close.

What if the glass is pre-etching times! None of my glass appears to have any markings on the old car.Must be a date when the rule cam in.

Can you take the door glass out altogether!Is it one of those items like the spare wheel that can only be failedl if it is there and not up to standard!

Windscreen markings (often incorrectly referred to as etchings) are not required on vehicles manufactured prior to 1st Jan 1960. Other glazing only requires markings after 1st Feb 1977.
Yes you can remove glazing provided its not bonded which is deemed structural.
