Windshield Repairs in Old Orchard Pennsylvania
Your car's windshield is not like other, more mysterious car parts. Similar to other aspects in life, when your windshield is working correctly, we don't contemplate it. On the other hand, when there is a problem, it turns into an emergency concern.
Windshield glass is a type of laminated glass. It consists of two layers of particular composite glass with a laminate between the glass.
The middle layer of the windshields are is usually made from a vinyl plastic element. In simple words, it is a very strong plastic. The vinyl plastic layer has glue on both sides, sticking to the outer layers of glass. This serves to hold both layers together and provides a surface in the event of shattering for glass pieces to adhere to.
Windshields installed in a manufacturing plant setting are done with robots, in an incredibly controlled manner. Digital alignment and installation procedures make sure that both molding and windshield are perfectly fitted.

Damaged windshields are a safety threat, therefore they need to be serviced once there are any hints of damage. Due the tight installation procedure as described above, the most ideal procedure is to have the fix done on the original windshield, in place. Usually this is possible if the damage is a small chip, starburst or crack. A brand new windshield will be called for when the crack has become too large to repair or if the chip or crack is in the line of vision of the driver.
If detected early enough the good news is that a tiny chip or little crack can most likely be repaired by DIY solutions. If you are not comfortable carrying this out yourself, then we advocate seeing a windshield service center immediately.
Sometimes, car drivers will ignore a little chip. However, if not taken care of swiftly, the issue can become worse.

How To Fix A Stuck Car Window?
The Driver Side Window Of My 1998 Toyota Corolla Is Stuck. I Would Get A New Car, But I Can'T Really Afford It Right Now. Does Anyone Have Any Suggestions On How I Can Fix The Window? Thanks In Advance!
more information is needed about this car. The information needed is whether or not this window is a power window or not.
if the car is a manual window, then you might try rolling it up while someone helps to pull the window up. 98 is about 15 years old so the mechanism may be drying out and just need to be lubricated.
if the car has power windows, the motor for the window may be going out. Most power windows are connected using a circuit breaker in the power lead of the window motor. When this breaker breaks the power will be temporarily cut off from the motor. It takes a while for the breaker to reset. When it does it will allow the window to be raised again. The motor going bad will cause the breaker to break again so you may only be able to raise it a little. This process may need to be repeated a few times until the window is all the way up. If the window is able to be raised this way, replacing the window motor will remedy this problem.
the car could also have a bad window regulator. The window regulator has a plastic part in which the regulator cable winds on. The sometimes go bad. If it has broken then the window will not roll up or down as it should. If this is bad, it is easier to replace than to try to fix the plastic part.
these are the main reasons the window will not roll up on its own
96' Nissan Maxima, Cracked Radiator, Cracked Timing Belt, The List Goes On?
I Have A 96' Nissan Maxima Gxe, Around 120,000 Miles. I Was Informed During A Recent Lube Change That My Car Had Some Fluid Leaking. So I Took My Car In To The Dealer And They Found Many Things That Need To Be Fixed. Replacing Cv Boots $400, Replacing Cracked Timing Belt $1500:Replacing Cracked Radiator $800, Replacing Powering Steering Hoses, $800. The Initial Quote Is Well Over $3500. I Could Potentially Buy Another Car With That Money. And I Don'T Have That Kind Of Money
I Need Some Advice On What Are Items That Absolutely Need To Fixed And What Can Be Fixed Later And If The Quoted Prices Are Reasonable.
Really Appreciate Anyone That Could Help Out.
The Dealership is not the place for a 1996 Maxima. If you had the skill to do these repairs on your own... you could probably buy most of the parts from online suppliers, and ebay for less than $400. The rest of that $3500 cost is simply part markups, and labor cost.
If you don't have the skills, then there are many smaller mechanic shops, and franchise shops that will do it for cheaper.
Repairs in order of importance.
1- Radiator. In the summer your car will seize if it runs low on coolant.
2- Timing belt. A worn timing belt does not perform badly, but there is a concern it might break. There is probably still time before this needs to be done. It should be you second concern. Warning! If left too long... it may break causing serious damage to the engine. I've never paid more than $450 for a timing belt/water pump replacement. The parts are cheap, but the labor is intensive. Shop around. $1500 sounds like a rape job.
3- Power steering hoses are cheap! $800? SHOP AROUND!!! The hose/parts themselves cost no more than $40-$60. Perhaps more, if they are THAT specialized. But not $800
4) CV boot. A torn or broken boot means the Constant Velocity joint has been compromised with grit and soil. It will continue to function normally until it fails... usually a very long time. Replacing the boot may extend the life of the joint but is not cost effective. In many cases, the labor is actually cheaper to replace the whole joint. Unless the CV joints are new... then it may be easier to simply run on them until they are close to failing. You'll know this by a harsh knocking/ticking sound when making hard turns.
Find a reliable mechanic for your 1996 Maxima. The dealership prices no longer cut it for an aging car. Even Franchise shops such as Tuffy, or Monroe are preferable to your dealership quotes. Like I said, shop around, you can cut an easy $1500 off that estimate by finding better sources.

How To Safely Remove A Glued On Review Mirror From A Car Window For Replacement?
Get behind the mirror with a razor blade. Or you can heat the outside of the windshield of the glass where the mirror mounts with a mini torch and heat up the glue and pull it right off in your hand. Just don't over heat the windshield or you will crack it.
