In Reply to: front window crack.... posted by JasonL on October 04, 1999 at 09:30:16:
In California (or maybe its the insurance company, not sure) insurance companies will pay to have your windshield repaired with no deductible out of your pocket assuming you have comp. I had it done because I had a newer Celica (done by Safelite, BTW)that was never the same after getting a new windshield. A lot of wind noise at 80MPH+. Maybe it'd be a good idea to repair it first and if it looked like crap have it replaced in the future.
There's no turning back if you have it replaced and if its not a good job it could be a lot of time in the shop trying to get it right.
Just some thoughts.
: I was driving on a freeway about 70 mph and all of sudden my e46's front window got smashed by a tiny rock, making a nickle sized crack on front window right in the center... very frustrating. I'm thinking if I should replace the window since it's fully covered by the insurance here in Massachusetts. But then, I'm wondering if replacing the front window might cause any rain leaking. After all, it won't be as reliable as origianl window installed at the factory when this car was built. If you guys have experience on replacing the front window and have some comments or advice, I'd appreciate.
