How To Install a Windshield the “Right” Way -EricTheCarGuy


diy windshield chip repair
The windshield on my 2004 Honda Element has been cracked for years. After last winter the crack had reached half way across and I decided it was time to do something about it. It just so happens Kyle Kiss, son of Rich Kiss of Kiss auto glass, is a fan of my show. He stopped by the shop one day with his dad and I asked if they would be interested in making a video about replacing the windshield on my Element. The rest is in the video.

I know a little about replacing windshields, Rich knows a LOT. I learned quite a bit making this video. I hope you do too.

A special thanks to Rich and Kyle for participating in this video and showing us how a professional replaces a windshield.
