Wondering if anybody had issues with their windshield like I just did,
Last Dec I noticed a 3 inch crack on my windshield after I got back to the jeep, I had been using the heater set to “defrost” and thought it might have been caused by the change in temp. It started at the bottom edge exactly in the center and started growing. I noticed it would grow every time I used the heater in defrost mode and let it sit for a while.
I contacted a local glass replacement/repair shop and on Jan 2nd they replaced the windshield. I was told then that the windshield being replaced was not the original one. I was charged $195 for the glass and 25.00 for the new molding.
Yesterday when I got in the car to come home from work I see that the windshield is cracked again in the same area (middle of windshield) this time running from top to bottom. I called the guy who replaced it two weeks ago and told him what happened; he said he needed to see it to determine what caused the crack. It doesn’t look like the crack was caused by a rock or anything hitting the windshield.
Could it be a problem with the frame? I’m wondering why the guy didn’t pick it up the first time. I hate to pay another $230 for a new windshield!!
