Hi there!

Yes there is.

Specialist firms deal with windscreen repair, and may be covered by your insurance policy.

The method for chips involves creating a vacuum over the damage, then injecting clear resin. This sets and is then polished off flat again.

For cracks in one layer, the end of the crack is hollow ground, and a disc of glass is bonded in, then the crack is either ground out and filled, or just filled as a chip would be.

Ask several windscreen repair companies for a quote before working.
If the crack is severe, it may not be possible due to weakening of a major structure. Also if water has entered the crack, then damage of the mid layer cannot be repaired, and will remain foggy or white.

Windshield replacement


Some companies will repair a large crack such as your if it does not reach from one edge of the windshield over to another.I would recommend replacement.Most of the time you can see the crack slightly still after the repair and delamination is a possibility later on.check with your insurance company and you may be able to pay a $50 deductible to have it replaced.

Windshield crack repair


The windshield is actually a piece of safety equipment designed to hold you inside the car in a horrific accident. Once the windshield has a crack, the integrity of the safety equipment is compromised and should be replaced. Repairing it is not suitable. If your seat belt was ripped in half, would you feel comfortable sewing it back together? I hope not.

How do i repair a crack in my windshield?


small cracks or star breaks can be done with an epoxy applied to the window by a glass service.. a long crack especially in the drivers view will need to be replaced entirely...its a matter of the law and a safety issue mostly..these companies will come to you and put one in and sometimes your insurance will cover the cost check with them and repost the findings thnx

FOR a cracked Valve cover, $500? Find another mechanic. The valve cover might cost $40 and a new seal is $7 or $8 and 20 min to put it on. Now, if he actually talking about repairing the Head $500 is about right but not for a valve cover.

It should be replaced. The windshield actually will provide protection in a roll over crash, keeping the roof from caving in and crushing occupants. So you want it to be crack free for the strength to be there to protect you. The only repairs that can be made are much smaller than what you describe, and in hot and cold weather the glass will continue to expand and contract, and crack further.

Why isnt my windshield wiper working?


Easy fix. Very very common chevy issue. the wiper motor goes but no wipers, or they work one time and not the next. drove me nuts for two years. It is the wiper control module. The board actually get moisture in it cracks the sod-er joints they are there go get magnifying glass. hair line cracks in the board. how ever good new auto zone advance auto who ever carries the board 30 bucks. located back of the fire wall by the wiper motor. three torx screws. remove torx. care full not to bend prongs when pulling board. replace with new screws and cover and board. seal new cover with silicon rtv so forth to re prevent moisture. when it rains, rain drops on this board by the top crack and will reoccur. but this is sure fix. did my truck and my buddies. Make sure to use silicon or don't waste your time. Been good ever since 1 year now.
