Windshield Replacement Question...

...What company is able to do it without scratching the window frame? I hear a lot of people say they don't like replacing their cracked windshields because it's so difficult to remove the stock one without prying/scratching the pillars! Is this true??

I haven't seen any issues with mine. I'm in CT and have Safelite auto glass replace mine. I've had 3 replacements so far on a 2013.

Any reputable glass shop can do it. You could take it to the dealer but they just farm it out to glass co. [the cheapest one they can find] and then take their cut. I have had good service from Safe lite they are a little pricey but you get what you [or your ins.co.] pay for

Cool... Does Safelite offer the OEM decals as well, the ones along the perimeter of the stock glass?

Good question! Im thinking about replacing mine soon because I have a few big chips. I love the decals! That may be a deal breaker.

I had mine replaced with oem glass from a local reputable shop. It came out perfect. Too many horror stories involving safelite scratching the paint and wind noise.

Safelite DOES do OEM replacements. I think the quality of service is like anything else. Some places have really GOOD techs working for them and some places have really BAD techs. We used Safelite in Austin and haven't had any problems and no damage incurred during the replacement.
