Can I Further Tint Factory Privacy Glass, And Whats An Acceptable Price For Tints?
I Just Recently Purchased A New Suv And The Back Windows And Trunk Are All Privacy Glass From The Factory. However, The Front Windows And Windshield Are Not Tinted. I Am Looking To Tint The Front 2 Windows And Maybe Get A Strip Across The Top Of The Windshield. Does Anyone Know If I Can Further Tint Privacy Glass, Or Do I Have To Get The Front Windows Tinted To Match The Privacy Glass In The Back? I Guess I'M Just Asking If The Privacy Glass Can Be Further Tinted, Or Are They Not Able To Add The Additional Tinting Film Over The Glass Without Messing Up The Windows? Also, Does Anyone Know What A Good, Decent Price Would Be For The Front Driver And Passenger Side Windows Along With A Tint Strip On The Windshield? I Don'T Know Much About This And Have Never Had It Done On Any Of My Older Cars, And I Don'T Want To Get Ripped Off. Thank You, Any Answer Is Much Appreciated!!
Look for a LLumar dealer at http://www.llumar.com the cost for the front windows and strip for an SUV should run between $80-120 for a high performance film like LLumar ATR
What Glue Works On Glass?
My Mirror Fell Off In The Car. I Used The Autozone Stuff For Putting It Back On. The Glue Stuck To The Glass, But It Didn'T Stick To The Plastic Part Of The Mirror. Any Suggestions?
All auto parts stores sell a specific inside rear mirrior bracket glue. Tell them exactly what you need the glue for.
Water Is Leaking Into Our Car On The Front Passenger Side Where Bottom Of Dashboard Meets...?
...Carpet. It Looks Like It Is C
From The Pipe That Blows Heat To Floor. Noticed That Rubber Seal On Outside Of Bottom Of Windshield Was Coming Up, So We Sealed It With Clear, Silicone. But Water Is Still Coming In. But, From Where And What Should We Do? Thanks!!!!
These kinds of leaks can be tough to fix.
The "seal" is not really a seal, it's more cosmetic than anything.
Most likely problem is that a little rust has started and undermined the paint and adhesive to glass seal along the edge. Look very closely all around the edges for bubbly-looking paint.
The right way to fix it is to have the windshield removed and the rust sanded away and then have the windshield glued back on. If the price for this is out of your reach, sometimes you can get by with pulling out the rubber seal all the way around, scraping out what rust you can see, and using oodles of clear silicone caulking from a caulking gun to fill the gap.
And oh, it could also be a leak somewhere else. Try using a hose to pour water into the air vents below the windshield while you look for leaks inside. Leaks here are usually due to cracked or loose ducts or firewall gaskets.
Can Your Car Windshield Break On Its Own?
Is It Possible For The Windshield On You Car To Break On Its Own In Warm Weather While You'Re Driving Without Hitting A Large Bump On The Road Or Without Putting Anything On The Windshield?
I know for a fact that it can. It is unusual that it happens when you are DRIVING, but hot weather can break them pretty easily. I have had a window do this to me before.
It is also possible for a very small crack on the edge of the glass to advance very quickly for no particular reason. This would give the appearance of something happening suddenly, when in fact it has happened over a long period.
