Replacement windscreen problems with Honda Civic

I need to replace the cracked windscreen in my 2013 Honda Civic EX GT. I am concerned that the standard insurance replacement will not be compatible with all the sensors fitted in the original screen, which and may at some point in the future invalidate the warranty. What rights do I have to insist on a Honda replacement with my insurance company?

If the screen is not replaced by the correct screen with the correct sensors then the car will not have been properly repaired, so if the insurer insists on using its repairer and an aftermarket screen, go to your Honda dealer, have the screen replaced by him (it won't be him, it will be a contractor, but it will be the correct screen) then send your insurer the bill. Don't expect your NCD to be unaffected.

Official advice is to place the French Crit'Air sticker on the right side of vehicle windscreen but for most UK cars this will impinge more than 40mm into zone B and won't that therefore be an MoT failure?
