Repairing Chipped Windscreen Glass in Your Car

50

About: Hi! If you like my tutorials, you can check out my youtube channel: https://www.youtube.com/user/mrfixpl

Used a $5 repair kit instead of replacing the windscreen that would cost me around $150 with non-genuine replacement for Volvo C30.

Steps are simple:

  1. Clean the area. Don't apply the cleaner directly on glass.
  2. Stick the adapter to the glass.
  3. Fill the hole with resin.
  4. Use syringe to create vacuum and remove air deposits from the hole. Live it for 15 minutes.
  5. Use syringe to apply pressure to the cracked area. Leave it for 15 minutes.
  6. Remove the adapter.
  7. Apply single drop of the resin to the cracked area and cover it with transparent foil.
  8. If possible, move your car into sun so the resin solidify faster. Leave it for 15 minutes.
  9. Remove foil.
  10. Use blade to remove additional resin from the glass.
  11. Clean the windscreen.
