Your car's windshield is unlike other, more mysterious car parts. Just like other things in life, when your windshield is working properly, we do not think about it. Yet, whenever there is a problem, it ends up being an urgent issue.
Windshields are made using laminated glass. They are made up of 3 layers, two outer layers of composite glass and an inner laminate layer.
In many cases the inner layer is made of vinyl plastic. In simple terms, it is a very strong plastic. The vinyl plastic sheet has adhesive on both sides, sticking to the outer layers of glass. This is the grounds of how laminated safety glass is created. It will protect against a windshield from shattering into dangerous glass shards.

Help With Car Window?
The Window Fell Of The Track Of The Regulator And I Cant Get It To Stay On. Will The Regulator Need To Be Replaced? Or Can I Glue It Back On Or Anything Like That?
If you can pull the window up by hand, Get a wedge like half of a cloth pin and wedge it between the window and the window seal where it comes up out of the door. You may have to use a lot of wedges to make it hold. Don't worry. the glass won't break. If you want to re-glue it back in, clean the regulator track and glass of cement and use JB WELD inplace of the original cement. Then raise the window all the way up. Let it set for 24 hours before using the window
Car Window Off Track?
I Have A 2004 Toyota Corolla Le, And The Driver Side Window Randomly Popped Up The Other Day. When I Was Rolling It Up The Part Closer To The Back Pushed Up Way Faster Than The Front To Where It Was Just Pointing Straight Up In The Air. I Rolled It Back Down And It Popped Off One Of The Minor Panels Near The Side Mirror From Where It Looked Like The Window Was Rolling Up In The Space In The Door Instead Of The Spot Left For The Window. Its An Electric, But The Motor I Think Is Fine. Is It Just Off Track? Is There An Easy Way For Me To Fix It Myself Even Though It Seems Like Its Pretty Bad?
I see this quite a bit at my shop. One of two things is wrong with your car.
(1) There are 2 tabs that glue to the window from the factory and those tabs are what bolt on to the door. If one of those tabs broke, then you will have to replace the door glass. The glass by itself without tax or labor is $155.73 from Toyota. The Toyota glass is actually cheaper than an aftermarket glass. The cost to have it installed depends on what the shop charges for labor but expect to pay between $200-$275 for the glass and installation
(2) The window regulator is broken. The cost of the window regulator from Toyota is 310.48. You can only purchase the regulator from Toyota. Again the cost to have it installed depends on the shops rates, but expect to pay $400-$500 for the regulator installed
Unless you have experience in doing this, then I would not recommend doing it yourself.
2,000 For A Tiny Scratch?
Today I Was Backing Up And Slightly Tapped A Car. I Left An Unnoticeable Scratch On His Bumper Car But I Immediately Apologized And Was Willing To Pay For His Car Because It Was My Fault. He Refused To Call The Police And Took Down My Information And Called Me With Estimate Of 2,000. In My Head, I'M Like What? I Thought I Would Have To Pay $500 Or Maybe Even 1,000 For Such A Tiny Scratch But 2,000? Is That How Much It Usually Cost? If So, I Will Have To Pay The Amount But I Just Don'T Want To Be Sure I Am Not Being Ripped Off
You left an unnoticeable scratch on his bumper. So what are you apoligizing about? It is unnoticeable or it is noticeable. So which is it? Should have got the cops in there hot and heavy. Chances are he is repairing his car and saying you did it all.
Put it in perspective.
I have a Toyota van type car. A kid about 14, moved his bike between my van and another van. He has the wide handlebars. He scraped both vehicles as he rode through, the full length of the vehicle. Brand new car scraped down into the metal and dented. For repair of the entire side I first had to go to 3 body shops(I went to 5) and get a price estimation. It ranged from $400 to $1500 to fix this gouge and paint the side of the van.
As my insurance was going to cover it, I chose the most costliest shop once I got the okay to go ahead(because I could). The work done by any shop has to meet with my approval(or they have to do it again)-$400 or $1500.
. So I am wondering what he is claiming that takes $2000.00
.You can repaint the car for that and do body work.
. No shop of any quality strips off an old paint job. They spot sand...and if the dent was not noticeable, they would have just used rubbing compound and buffed it out...not even applying paint as you just marred the car (kind of like soaping windows Halloween night) so the buffing compound just takes off the finest layer(like using 5000grit sandpaper) and basically polish it up again. I paint cars so kind of know how it is done.
He and the bodyshop are screwing with you. Screw him back and say you are going through insurance so they got to see the damage...and they have their own estimators as to how much it is going to cost to get fixed. Insurance dictates the cost. Bodyshops live with it.
Later, a sawhorse fell on the hood and put a dent in it plus a scratch. That is $500 at the same body shop and they are only doing the "hood" as the dent is as large as my fist. Very obvious. Am leaving it alone until I get a front ender where it really has to be repaired. That could be 20 years from now or never.
Took My Car Into For A Head Gasket Repair. In Taking The Top Off(Convertible) They'Ve Damaged My Rear Window.
The Garage Now Expect Me To Pay For This-Tell Me This Isn'T Right When They Did The Damage??
This is an "open shut" case.
Their insurance should pay - if they have it!!!!!!!!!!!!
If not yours will, then let the insurance company chase it.
All else fails, state NICELY to the business owner you intend to take further legal action if not resolved - take a mate as a witness.
Bet you get results
Cheers and good luck
