Windshield Repairs in Northampton Pennsylvania
Your car's windshield does not belong with the mystical, under hood components. Yet it seems to be transparent in its use, however its usefulness can not be understated.

Does Comprehensive Insurance Cover Cosmetic Damages Due To A Low Side Crash?
I Was Riding Today And I Took A Turn A Little Too Hot And Low Sided My Motorcycle... Does Comprehensive Cover This?
No. Comprehensive Insurance - Auto insurance coverage providing protection in the event of physical damage (other than collision) or theft of the insured car. For example, fire damage or a cracked windshield would be covered under the comprehensive section.
For something of that nature, you would need collision coverage. Collision Insurance- Covers physical damage to the insureds automobile (other than that covered under comprehensive insurance) resulting from contact with another inanimate object.
Buying A New Car... Trying To Choose Between A Mazda 2 Touring, Toyota Yaris, Toyota Corolla, Or Hyundai Accent.?
Some Stuff That Might Be Helpful: I Can Only Drive An Automatic Transmission, I Want Something Reliable That Will Last Me For Years And Any Repairs Should Be Cheap/Affordable, I Don'T Care About The Bells And Whistles (As Long As It Has A/C And Power Windows/Locks, I'M Happy).
Toyotas are the most reliable and longest-lasting cars in the world. Of the two Toyotas, the Corolla is bigger and more comfortable. The Yaris is cute and might get a little more mileage but it's smaller inside and it's a lot noisier on the highway.
Who Should Pay For Windshield Repair?
At My Request (He Likes To Stay Home, I Like To Travel), My Boyfriend (Of Six Months) And I Took A Weekend Getaway To A City That Is Two Hours Away From Where We Live. On The Way Back, A Rock Hit His Windshield And Cracked It. Windshield Resin Can'T Fix It Because Of The Type Of Crack.
Now, He Drives A Mercedes And Will Only Get His Repairs Done At An Official Dealership, Which Means That Changing The Windshield Is Going To Cost A Whopping 700$. Insurance Won'T Cover It.
I Feel Responsible Since The Trip Was At My Request (And I Did Pay For Almost Everything On The Trip). I'Ve Offered To Pay For Half Of The Repair. Is That Enough??
Things To Take Into Consideration:
- He Makes About 25K A Year More Than I Do.
- If He Didn'T Insist On Going To The Dealership, It Would Cost Significantly Less.
- He Was Driving.
- He Chose Not To Include Windshield Coverage In His Insurance Policy.
- The Damage Would Never Have Occured If I Hadn'T Insisted On Going Out Of Town...
It was an accident...it wasn't your fault or his, and could have happened anywhere at any time...I'd consider it a normal driving hazard and certainly wouldn't try to hold anyone responsible (unless someone literally threw the rock that hit you)...the trip being at your behest is irrelevant...
If he wants his whole windshield replaced at the dealer, and chooses not to get comprehensive insurance that would cover that, then it's his cost...next time he may choose not to take his car (that's up to him also)...
Small Problem Using My Windshield Repair Kit?
I Bought A Kit A Professional Kit A Few Months Ago To Fix Windshields. I Noticed 3 Chips Of My Own On My Car Windshield. I Tried To Fix The First One By Tapping The Probe Directly Into The Windshield But Instead Of Turning The Star Into A Bullseye, It Extended It A Little. Is That Problem Because I Am Using A Probe That Is Not Sharp On The End?
If you have to open up a star break, first you need to drill with a Dremmel drill (your kit should have come with a drill and drill bits). Then to pop it open, use a thick, sharp needle. Be careful how hard you tap the needle.
This takes lots and lots of practice to get it right. Pop bullseyes on an old windshield and practice. Also look on You Tube to see if there are any instructional videos for the type of kit you bought. Some kit manufacturers offer free training or free phone consultations.
