Once the winter month’s pass, drivers around the UK will be cleaning off the seasonal dirt that’s built up over the cold months. It’s through this that many people notice small dings and scratches that might be a cause for concern. Another thing people may also notice is small scratches, chips and scuffs on your windscreen. Many people don’t know how to handle vehicle window damage, and throughout this guide we’ll be telling you the process you should go through.
A chip can very easily develop into a large fracture, which will have to be replaced. Any damage directly in front of the drivers side seat cannot exceed 10mm. The other areas of the windscreen cannot show damage that exceeds 40mm in length or diameter, as this is the limit set out by the MOT specifications. Any damage that exceeds this will not only fail your MOT, but will be beyond the repairable limit and will warrant a windscreen replacement. This may be a pain to some but it is for the greater good, as any windscreen with significant damage will be a dangerous hazard, as something as small as a pebble can cause a damaged windscreen to shatter. Climate can also cause damaged windscreens to shatter, as glass can fluctuate in size in different climates.
Even though most minor windscreen damage can be repaired, sometimes the damage can be significant enough to warrant a complete replacement of the damaged unit. Any damage exceeding the 10 or 40mm limits set out by the MOT test will have to be repaired, as obscured windscreens are a point of contention during your MOT. Glass is temperamental and if the damage is deemed over the repairable stage, then you will have to go through a windscreen replacement.
Finding a reputable repair service is of the utmost importance, as a windscreen is a very important part of the overall safety features of your vehicle. It’s actually a large structural point of the car, as well as the only thing protecting you from things flying into the car possibly obscuring your vision whilst driving.
