Windshield Repairs in Portland Pennsylvania

Your windshield does not belong with the mysterious, under hood components. Even though we do not give windshield a lot of thought, they are remarkably crucial.

Windshield glass is a kind of laminated glass. It features two layers of very special composite glass with a laminate in between the glass.

The laminate typically is made from a style of vinyl plastic. This middle layer adheres to the two outer layers. This serves to keep both of these layers together and provides a surface in the event of shattering for glass pieces to stick to.

Cars that are newly assembled have windshields installed by robots in the manufacturing facility. This is a tightly managed and monitored setting. Computerized alignment and positioning procedures make certain that both molding and windshield are precisely fitted. Learn more about Portland window installation from your local repair professional.

Windshield repair is needed as soon as possible if there is damage. Whenever possible, it is always highly recommended to have a repair done on the original windshield, doing away with the need to replace it. Usually this is feasible if the damage is a very small chip, starburst or crack. This is not feasible if the crack has lengthened, if the chip is in the driver's field of view or the chip is bigger that a coin.

Little chips or cracks may be repaired with any variety of windshield repair kits that are for sale today. If you are not comfortable accomplishing this yourself, then we advocate visiting a windshield service center as soon as possible.

Chip repair may seem like such a trivial issue, many people will ignore it. However, if not dealt with swiftly, the problem can become worse.

Windshield FAQ

Jeep Wrangler Questions, Please Help!?
I'M Going To Be Buying My First Jeep Wrangler In The Near Future. It Will Most Likely Be A 1997-2000 Model (I Need A Cheap One With Air Bags). The Top Will Probably Have To Be Replaced Due To Foggy Plastic In The Back Or Due To Cold Weather (I'Ll Get A Hardtop For Winter). I Believe That The Models Between 1997 And 2006 All Use The Same Sort Of Tops, Correct? If Not, Which Tops Could Be Used On A 1998 Jeep Wrangler? Does It Have To Be Model Specific? Any Other Tips Or Tibits You Have Concerning Jeep Wranglers Would Also Be Greatly Appreciated. I Love These Cars And Am Super Excited To Get One!

Crys is right, if you can afford sailcloth, go for it. I wish I had a hard top for winter too, but those are really expensive (like $2k new). Honestly, though, it wasn't that I was cold under my soft top, even in our Snowpocalypse of 2010. Really the only reason I would like a hard top would be so I could be a little more careless about scraping snow and ice off of it.

About all tops being the same from 97-06...something changed in 2003 (there seem to have been a bunch of little TJ changes then). Direct replacement tops (not Supertops) always seem to have the model years broken down into 97-02 and 03-06. I really don't know what the difference is. If you are buying new (which I think is the best idea), order your year and it won't matter. If you are buying used (craigslist, ebay, whatever) just be aware that an 04 top may not fit your 98 Jeep. Although I hear about a lot of people who do, personally, I wouldn't take my chances on a used top...unless maybe it was from a friend I trusted.

When you are Jeep shopping and looking at the condition of the top, don't just look at the windows. Obviously look for tears, but also check out the stitching. That's what killed my last top. Everything was in overall good condition until the stitches that attach the side window zippers to the top as well as the plastic tabs above the doors suddenly and completely failed on both sides in one week!

One last soft top tidbit: Don't mess with it unless it is warm out or sitting in the sun. They get pretty stiff and shrink a little in the cold.

Car Windshield Sprayer Broke Off-- Cost?
I'M From Wisconsin, And I Have A New (Used) 2003 Dodge Stratus. I Was Shoveling The 1 Foot Of Snow Off Of My Car With A Cheap Plastic Shovel, And The Darn Windshield Sprayer Broke Off. In My Old Car, The Windshield Sprayer Was Right Up Against The Windshield, But In This Model, It'S About 6-8 Inches Out Onto The Hood Of The Car (A Little Black Plastic Knobby Deal) And It Just Broke Right Off. I Have Never Heard Of This Happening To Anyone Before. Does Anyone Know How Much This Will Cost To Replace? (Yes, I Know, That This Will Teach Me Not To Shovel My Car, But 1 Foot Of Snow Is Very Time Consuming And I Was In A Hurry).

About $6 to replace the sprayer nozzle.

Are Volkswagen Cabrio's Good Cars?
I Might Me Getting A Used 2000 Volkswagen Cabrio In December And I Was Wanting To Know If Anyone Owned One And Was Wondering If They Were Good Cars. It Is A Convertible. Since It Is A Convertible Will It Leak And Will It Be Colder In The Winter Time Because Of The Type Of Roof(I Guess You Call It That On Cars.Lol) Im Not The Smartest When It Comes To Cars Lol. And Since It Is Used I Know It Might Be Different Than Others But I Was Wanting To Know In General If They Were Pretty Good Cars. Because I Have Never Heard Of Them Before Until My Mom Told Me She Found Me One.Lol

The Cabrio for 2000 was a good vehicle; its short coming is mainly in the automatic transmission and some electrical issues. The top is insulated, as are most German convertibles, so its not as cold as you might think.

The big issue on this vehicle (besides the mechanical condition) is the condition of the weatherstrips and the top itself. The tops of your vintage is likely near the end of their normal life and may need replacement soon. The top replacement in the original German Happage material (if yours isn't the cheap vinyl top used on some of these cars) is not cheap, especially at the dealership level, but a comparable material is available in the aftermarket for much less money. Keep the weatherstrips soft by using a slicone based lubricant on them regularly, so as to keep them sealing against the weather and wind/water leakage. If all those weahterstrips require replacement, it will be expensive.

Door and window adjustments being needed are common; the body settles and flexes some over time, so don't be surprised if the doors and windows need adjustment to fit and close correctly. One adjusted, they should stay adjusted at least for a while but don't expect that they will stay that way forever. Make sure the chassis is rust free as the reinforcements for the lack of a fixed room are extremely important in a convertible.

You could do a lot worse than purchasing a 2000 Cabrio; the Golfs/Jetta/New Beetle vehicles of the same year are less reliable and far more trouble prone than the Cabrio of the same year.

While the leather seats with heat are nice, I think most people would be better off with the cloth seats, a standard shift transmission and the steel wheels, and of course, a/c. Even the cruise control isn't as good as a cruise control in a US or Japanese vehicle, so a base Cabrio will be less expensive to purchase and maintain.

Hope this helps, a car nut.
