Windshield


Most windshields are stationary. They are fixed in place with a weather-strip made of rubber, which has a groove on the inside and a groove on the outside. The inside groove holds the glass; the outside groove holds the metal rim of the windshield opening in place. The glass "floats" in a plastic sealant that is spread out between the edge of the glass and the frame of the windshield. Windshields are made of laminated safety plate glass, which is a sandwich of glass and clear plastic. The plastic acts as a soft, protective barrier, keeping the glass in place, if it is struck during a collision. The glass sticks to the plastic to eliminate glass from flying around the interior and injuring someone.

Windshield Chip Repair

Crack Down on Rock Divets
According to professional repairers, approximately 75 percent of damaged windshields can be repaired instead of replaced. This is encouraging news, especially when considering that any windshield damage that obstructs the driver's view is illegal.

For anyone whose windshield has doubled as a backstop for rocks and debris that fly off of flatbed trucks, prompt action is critical. Over time, grit accumulates in the windshield's damaged area, and temperature fluctuations can make the marred portion grow.

Do-it-yourself systems designed to fill windshield nicks are available from several companies. The two styles of kits are an inexpensive syringe (about $8) and a more professional-type bridge system (around $17).

In general, windshield-repair kits are recommended for crackless pits of up to an inch in diameter ‹ and they aren't intended for 3stars,2 3spiders2 or any type of cracks. Their actual resin repair compound is formulated to have the same refractive characteristics as OE laminated glass, the goal being to make the repair virtually undetectable.

Step 1
Syringe-style repair kits (A) contain enough resin compound to fix one windshield chip. They mount to the glass with an adhesive disc and a plastic pedestal. Bridge-type kits (B) are more expensive but can be reused with resin refills.

Step 2
Clean the damaged area with glass cleaner, and allow it to dry completely. Then put a rag or towel below the damage to keep any spilled repair compound from contacting paint.

Step 3
For syringe-style repairs, punch out the hole in the adhesive disc, peel the backing off of one side of the disc and press it onto the glass. Center the damage in the disc's hole and point the disc's tab upward.

Step 4
Peel the backing off of the disc's top side and press on the pedestal, aligning the tabs at the top.

Step 5
Uncap the syringe and insert it in the pedestal, twisting till the syringe is firmly seated. Then pull the plunger upward to suck air from the damaged area, hold momentarily and let go to force the repair compound into the damage. Repeat the plunging process 10 times.

Step 6
The sun's ultraviolet rays cure the repair compound in approximately 30 minutes. Check from inside the vehicle for air bubbles and repeat the plunging sequence if necessary. To finish the job, remove the syringe, cut off the pedestal and disc with a blade and clean up any excess compound.
