Cracks in your windshield happen sometimes. They can be irritating if they get in the way of your view. If they are larger cracks, they may make driving difficult.

However, smaller cracks can be repaired. In this video, you will learn how to repair small cracks in your windshield yourself.

The first thing you need to do is determine how deep the crack is. All windshields have three layers. They have two layers of tempered glass with a layer of plastic in between. The crack can be repaired if it only has gone through one layer. You can determine this by feeling for the crack from the inside. If the glass is smooth inside, you are good to go. You will want to buy a windshield repair kit at the store. These kits provide everything you need to repair a windshield. They have the resin that you need, treating strips, a syringe, and so on. After you use the syringe to put the resin in the crack, you will have to wait ten minutes.
