Windshields are made using laminated glass. They are composed of 3 layers, two outer layers of glass and a middle laminate layer.
In many cases the inner layer is made of vinyl plastic. This inner layer sticks to both outer layers. This is the grounds of how laminated safety glass is constructed. It will prevent a windshield from shattering into harmful glass fragments.

Car Alarm...Glass Breaking Sensors?
I Have An Aftermarket Alarm On My Car And Just Recently Had My Window Smashed Open. It Didnt Even Go Off! What Are Glass Breaking Sensors? Should I Add Them To My Current Alarm? Can I Also Make My Alarm Be More Sensitive So It Will Go Off If Someone Taps The Car? Ive Seen This Remote With A Pic Of A Car And It Blinks And Sounds And Shows U Where The Car Was Touched.
It sounds like your alarm is an entry alarm. It is probably wired into the switch that turns on your dome light when the door is opened & has a motion detector for if the car is rocked.
As for the motion detector portion, your system should have a way to set the sensitivity threshold so it will trip with even a gentle breeze blowing to having to practically slam into the car with something. If you can change the sensitivity, try a couple different settings then try to trip your alarm until you like the sensitivity.
For your other problem, you will need to see if your system is upgradeable. If not, then you may want to look into replacing it with a more sophisticated system that will detect air pressure variances inside the car or get one that has a proximity sensor.
Have you ever seen some of the old Viper car alarm commercials? The ones that has the snake come out & encircle the car when a thief approaches it & there is also some type of voice message that is played too warning him that the vehicle is protected by Viper?
That is an example of a proximity sensor in operation. Depending on the sensitivity settings, all someone has to do is just get within 1-3 feet of the car & the alarm will activate. They don't even have to touch the car, or move the car for it to go off.
Can My Automobile Insurance Company Replace My Broken/Cracked Windshield?
I Heard That Your Insurance Company Will Replace Your Windshield If It Gets Hit. For Example, What If The Windshield Is Hit By A Rock And Makes A Crack, Will They Replace It? I Also Heard That It Will Be Free And It Won'T Increase The Price Of My Insurance Policy. Are All Of These True?
You need to call your insurance company or read your policy. Every company is different, and it depends what level of coverage you have. It has nothing to do with what state you're in. The minimum liability insurance that you are required to have does not cover it. Many "full coverage" plans do cover it, and the deductible will vary based on your policy. It will probably only be free if its reparable, and you'll have a deductible if it needs to be replaced.
I had this once while I was driving my dad's car. It was lucky that I was in my dad's car because his insurance covered it. I just called the insurance claims line and they told me the closest repair shop and set an appointment for me. It was a $100 deductible, and it did not affect the rates at all.
Car Cracked Wheel Help?
So Today I Realized That One Of My Tires On My Impala Was Completely Deflated. After Attempting To Inflate It With Air, I Found Out That Air Was Seeping From Behind The Tire. I Decided To Take It To A Tire Shop, Where They Told Me That My Rim Was Actually Cracked. They Showed Me The Crack And I Could See Bubbles Coming Out Of It (From My Wheel Being Dipped In Water) And Hearing A &Quot;Pssssssss&Quot; Noise Coming From It. The Guy Told Me Id Have To Get That Rim Crack Repaired Before I Could Put A New Tire On It. So I Told Him To Inflate It As Much As Possible So I Could Just Drive It Home And Swap My Rims With My Stocks (My Impala Currently Has Chrome 20'S). I Called Back The Tire Shop And Asked Them What My Cheapest Option Would Be To Repair The Rim Until I Can Get It Professionally Repaired. The Guy Told Me Jb Weld Would Work Since The Crack Is So Small, However It Wouldnt Last More Than A Few Months. So I Got A Ride To Autozone And Bought Tubes Of Jb Weld And When I Got Back To My Car That Same Night, I Was Surprised That My Tire Wasnt Leaking Anymore. I Put Pressure On My Tire And It Was Rock Hard, And I Didnt Hear The Air Escaping From It Like I Did When I Was At The Tire Shop Either. How Did This Happen? Did My Cracked Rim Get Clogged With Something? It Seems Perfectly Fine Now But Im Scared To Drive On It. Should I Get A Refund For My Jb Weld Or Should I Just Patch Up The Crack Anyway? Thanks (:
I would not waste any time with the JB Weld. If you were out of town, OK maybe a tire shop would try that.
They would need to clean the area around the crack, grind out V shape on the crack to hold the JB Weld. Then let dry for a few hours. This has to be done with the tire off.
I am guessing the rim is aluminum with chrome plating? Total guess. You would need to find a specialty shop to repair that rim. Do a search on TIG welding.
You might need to just purchase a new rim.
Repair Costs For Large Dent On Hood And Smashed Windshield?
Apparently Some Drunk Guys Threw Someone Onto My Car And Left A Very Large Dent On The Hood And Smashed The Windshield. Any Estimates On The Repair Costs?
The windshield will be a couple hundred. Id have to see the dent. If it can be popped out, then its will be pretty cheap. If the metal/paint is creased, youre looking at a several hundred dollar repair.
