Here are some do’s and don’ts when dealing with a cracked windshield:
- Address the crack as soon as possible to prevent it from spreading.
- Park your vehicle in a shaded area to prevent direct sunlight and water exposure.
- Use clear packing tape to seal the crack and prevent dirt and moisture from getting in.
- Consult with a professional auto glass technician to determine the best course of action.
- Follow the advice of your technician regarding repair or replacement options.
- Ignore the crack and continue driving your vehicle as usual.
- Use DIY repair kits without proper knowledge and expertise.
- Use hot water or other extreme temperature changes to fix the crack.
- Attempt to repair the crack more than once as the resin injection process cannot be repeated.
- Delay getting the crack fixed as it can compromise the safety of your vehicle and passengers.
