I have few digs in my car windshield but recently this one got worse. One piece sticks out and it's sharp too.
Without spending the money to replace the windshield, I went about a 5 minute fix.

Step 2: Cleaning the Cracked Area.

Using a damp Terry cloth I cleaned the area carefully without getting cut.

Step 3: Application of Silicone Adhesive.

I put a liberal amount of silicone on the cracked region. Using my finger I carefully pasted the adhesive. I left it to cure for 12 hours and now my cracked windshield has a couple more years to go until replacement!

    I recently developed a crack in my windshield. I really like the way this says to repair it. It seems like a very good way to temporarily fix. I will definitely be giving this a try, although I will need to replace. Thanks for sharing! http://www.citywideautoglass.com
