Talking Small Crack

I have a small crack in my windshield on one of my cars. About 3/4 inch long with a small dot in the center.
What can a person do to fix it them selves?????

Basically nothing. Do you have ins? Best left to a glass repair shop. AND sometimes they will on occassion Boo Boo and create a larger crack, seen it happen.

Many glass shops can fix these cost effectively if you nip it early. I agree with Darrell. Not DIY repair.

You can buy windshield crack repair kits at local auto parts stores for around $10. They are for small cracks and I have heard that they work. I personally have not seen nor used them, but I would not hesitate to use them for small cracks before paying big bucks for a professional repair.

My insurance guy told me that if a crack or chip can fit under the size of a credit card it can be fixed by a glass shop.Dont wait or it will grow my insurance will get it fixed free maybe yours will also.

Thumbs up

Michael is correct.

My sister's father in law had it done. No charge.
