  • Auto glass: How to replace auto glass

  • Cracked windscreens are common and most drivers feel the need to replace it before the problem worsens. Is auto glass replacement the kind of job a regular handyman could tackle successfully? Before you attempt to do it yourself, consider what might be involved. When you have a cracked or smashed car window, whether it be the result of accident or vandalism, you are looking at a task that is not for the inexperienced. Repairing or replacing auto glass is not your regular five-minute car maintenance job, but is one of those that will take a measure of know-how, not to mention specific tools.

    Unless you happen to be a mechanic of sorts, don’t even attempt to replace your own auto glass. If your windscreen needs replaced, this is a job that will need tools the ordinary car driver doesn’t possess. If it happens to be one of the door windows that needs replacement, this will require removing door panels, uncoupling the mechanics that hold the glass and replacing everything again. Replacing auto glass is basically a car job that should just not be tackled by most people. Most good car insurance policies include auto glass insurance to cover both cracks and breakages. There seems to be little need to think about tackling a job of work that may or may not succeed, when there are people who are experts, ready to do the job in a fraction of the time and at reasonable cost.

    Consider what is involved in replacing auto glass on a car door before making a move. You will need to clear out the rails where some of the broken glass is still lodged. Next, you have to clear up all the broken glass from inside the car. Next you have to remove the door panel on the inside, unscrew the mechanics holding the glass and clean out the broken glass within. Then you have to put the new glass in place, secure it and replace the door panel. Not easy is it? What is the message? For most people, the message is, leave it to the experts. Replacing auto glass is not like changing a tire. The time you will spend, the irritation you will feel and the strong possibility that you will not make a successful job should be enough to tell you to leave well alone.

    You can make life easy for yourself, by making sure you have auto glass coverage included in your car insurance policy. When the time comes to repair cracked glass or replace glass that is broken, simply call the experts and relax with a nice cup of coffee while you watch him do what he does best.
