WHAT TO DO IF WINDSHIELD REPLACEMENT IS THE ONLY OPTION

Not All Windshields Can Be Repaired
Here are Tips if You Must Replace
  • You have the right to request a windshield made by the original glass supplier (ask for "OEM" or Original Equipment Manufacturer)

  • Make sure that the vehicle isn't driven until the urethane cures.
