If you have a chip on your windshield, it is necessary that you get it repaired as soon as possible. A small chip on your windshield can turn into a big problem quickly. After the first layer of your windshield is penetrated, it is likely to crack out causing further damage, plus the need for a costly replacement.

Repairing your windshield when you notice a chip will save you money in the long run. You can call a windshield repair company, or do it yourself. They do sell inexpensive windshield repair kits at your local auto parts store, but if you are not comfortable with the process, call a professional.

Step 1: Windshield Repair Tools & Supplies

You can purchase a windshield repair kit from your local auto parts store, which will include all the necessary tools and supplies. I will be using a professional grade windshield repair kit, but the concept is the same.

You will need
A Mirror to place on the inside of the windshield
A Bridge & injector
Windshield repair resin
Windshield pit filler
Plastic curing tab
Razor blades
A dremel tool with special glass bit for cracks
Nicely done! Thank you for sharing this.
<p>Repairing windshield with Professional kit is a good idea but I don't think we can do it as good as professionals. Nowadays, Professionals are doing it in very reasonable price. www.professionalglasswindowservices.com</p>
<p>DIY rock chip repair is a great idea especially when you want to save on windshield replacement costs. But, what's important is that you know how to do it right otherwise you have to let the professionals do it for you to ensure that you and your family are safe while on travelling on the road. http://www.aceglassva.com</p>
The injector is kinda not the best. I prefer the ones with it on either side of the chip for even pressure. Where i use to work we did this all the time. The fun part was getting it drilled out right and not hit the other side. So long someone is paient and has a sharp bit it causes no problems. If you can do this within a garage do it. A UV light is also helpful to cure it if it is indoors or out doors. Cures it nice and fast without having to depend if the sun is out.
Great stuff! But I have to say DIY windshield repair is a great idea if you know what you&rsquo;re doing to be honest and you can surely save some cash out of it. However it would be a great idea as well to get a professional help when it comes on this just to make sure you'll not ending up replacing the whole windshield as to the result of the DIY method you have&hellip; <br>www.triglassinc.com <br>
Yeah, DIY is nice. But it is always better to get a professional. Just to be sure. You could make terrible mistakes. <br>And look, because I am giving out such unique and altrusitic advice, why not click on this link and buy 'professionally' overpriced carglass repair sets anyway.
Great information, thanks! I'm off to find a repair kit.<br> <br> (Not sure if you were aware, the Austin information link doesn't work.)
Also its not nice to advertise on someone's able. The poster is professional
@ecramer I don't see any way someone would mess up there windshield worse then the chip in the first place. Maybe too much sealer but the cn be taken off. Also no one will ever learn how to do anything without trying it first.
where i can get an injector?
could have used this for my toyota--i hope i dont ever need it-- but gonna save this in case i do need it !!!!!!!Thanks
Fantastic! I've always wondered how it was done! Thanks!<br><br>K.
