Windshield Scratch

Recommended Posts

It's the damndest thing! My 987S is only a month old and I managed to get something caught under the wiper. Now I've got a scratch in an arc right across my vision. It's 14" long and deep enough that it catches a fingernail. If it was on the other side I'd just live with it but I now have to look at (and through it) everyday.

Is something like this repairable like they do with chips or do I just have to bite the bullet and have the whole shield replaced?

Any advice, info or experiences appreciated.

I know what you mean. Mine is only a month old too. I was on the 60 freeway in SOCAL, minding my own business when all of a sudden, I heard this loud "tink". And just in an instant, I had a freaking rock ding in my windshield!! :cursing: Luckily for me it is at the bottom of my windshield. I'm still fuming about it. :soapbox: There were no vehicles around at all.....I bought some windshield goop I'm gonna try. I'll post and let everyone know how it works. :eek:

Full glass coverage($0 deductible) on auto insurance usually only costs about $5-10/yr. In the last 10 years, our family has replaced at least 5 windshields on 4 different cars totaling about 500,000 miles. IMO full glass coverage is money well spent.

The Eastwood company sells several glass restore/scratch removal products.



I just recently used the Eastwood windshield repair kit to get a BADLY scratched windshield (on a Chrysler Cirrus) through MD state inspection. It worked as advertised, but took a ton of elbow grease. There are 2 levels of product - one for deep scratches (catches the fingernail) and one for superficial scratches. I used the latter, and all of the superficial scratches polished out. The deeper scratches remained, but improved.
