Just discovered I have a starfish crack in my windscreen (near top). It hasn't gone right through. Diameter is about 2cm. It is repairable and where to go to get it done?


Cheers

look in local autotrader etc for a local windscreen repair co, most areas have a few now. i've seen them do the repairs (just!) and they are almost invisible.

can't remeber franchise name off top will post it up if i remember.

For the sake of £50 get a new one via your insurance, make the crack worse! lol

Most autofactors sell a kit u can buy and do it yourself, but again all depends on how bad it is, 2cm may not sound much but may be enough. Places like autowindscreen etc can do it via your windscreen cover on your insurance also.

dont they (some kind of windscreen place ) do what called silicon filling on the screens better than a hole new screen coz it dont touch your insurence and its abou 40-50 quid and up to tree fills i think

Thanks Guys.

I suppose I will do it through the insurance then rather than the repair kit.
Can you specify windscreens that have a band of light blue/green tint going across the top for sun glare and pay extra?
