Windshield Replacement – A Major Safety Precaution

Auto professionals recommend that when you have a nick or crack in your windshield that you get it repaired as opposed to having the entire thing replaced. This will save you a great deal of money in comparison with getting a brand new windshield. There are times though that the imperfection in your auto glass may be too serious to repair and you must go the more extreme route of actually having it replaced.

The main cause of having to have a front window replaced is because of cracks that are less than three inches away from the edge of the glass. These cracks can be caused from a rock hitting the windshield and can start out as small as the point on the end of a needle. These cracks can also come from mechanical stress, temperature deviation, or even tension pressure from the interior of the actual vehicle. Front windows may also need to be replaced due to vandalism, weather damage, or cracks that have been ignored and have spread too close to the edge.

Waxy film on the cut-glass produced by the release of vapors entombed in the control panel termed plasticizes can generate a yellowy film that alters your imperceptibility through the windshield, particularly at night.

How To Clean Interior Windshield Glass

The inside of the windshield is obviously not exposed to the same abuse as the outside, but what it does have to deal with is hazy or waxy film on the glass caused by the release of gasses trapped in the dashboard, called plasticizes. Ironically, these plasticizes are commonly known for what we call the new car smell, but the byproduct is a yellow film that distorts the visibility through the windshield, especially at night. Find out a few tips for cleaning it properly.

Should be approached from the passenger side of the vehicle in order to avoid the steering wheel. Lay down a few dry microfiber towels on your dashboard to soak up glass cleaner if it should drip or spill to avoid leaving a watermark in your dash’s plastic or vinyl. Next spray three or four squirts of glass cleaner to prime your scrub pad, then add a few more squirts to one quarter of the glass, working from top to bottom. The scrub pad will cut through and lift the yellow plasticize allowing the microfiber glass towel to easily scoop up the film.
