How To Repair A Windshield In The Rain
- Published on: Tuesday, December 19, 2017
- Here we show exactly how to repair a windshield in the rain. If you need to repair your windshield chip immediately and it was recently exposed to the rain (or any water; carwash, hose, etc.) Follow these steps exactly:
Step #1 Get the vehicle to a covered area, we used the customer's garage, but we could have also used our new location in Austin -see here https://goo.gl/maps/gBRiy8zFLtm.
Step #2 Drill the exterior layer of the glass at exact impact point. This will be obvious as it is usually the center of the damage and will have a noticeable white, crushed glass point.
Step #3 Clean off the debris left by the drilling of the glass (glass dust). Tip: We use a syringe and shoot air into the drill tap spot.
Step #4 On the inside of the windshield apply heat to warm up the damaged area. Tip: We use a butane lighter with a long tip. Get the glass warm, but not too hot. Test with your hand/finger. If it's too hot to touch, that's too hot -just warm. After you warm the glass wait 3-5 minutes.
After few minutes you can continue your repair as normal. To learn more about windshield chip repair see http://www.mobileglassco.com/windshield-chip-repair/
