The windshield on your automobile is much more than a standard piece of auto glass.
A windshield is actually a structural component used to protect passengers in the
event of an accident, which is why windshield replacement and windshield repair
are so important. While TeleGlass endorses a windshield repair when possible, sometimes
the windshield simply must be replaced.First, the old windshield must be safely removed. In many cases, this involves removing
any old clips, or mouldings that were attached to the old broken windshield.
Next, the technician will inspect and clean the pinchwell and the opening where
the windshield was to ensure the vehicle has no rust, or any other hidden problems
that will impact the replacement of the windshield.
Once the technician is satisfied with the inspection of the vehicle, he or she will
move on to installing the new windshield.
Installing the new windshield is actually trickier that it sounds. Windshield safety is our main objective. The technician
will prime the glass, and lay out a bead of urethane on the glass before placing
it in its correct place to allow the urethanes to set. A windshield replacement requires a special
high tech adhesive called urethane that bonds the windshield and the automobile.
This urethane is the specialized glue that is crucial in the bonding of the windshield and the automobile. A trained auto glass technician will
know how to properly use the urethane and ensure they are using the correct type
of urethane for each vehicle.
Last, the technician will reinstall any mouldings or clips that go around the
perimeter of your windshield. These items work contribute to the clean look of your
Windshield replacement is the art of removing the existing broken windshield and
