Windshield Replacement

What to Expect from Windshield Replacement
OK, so you’re ready to get scheduled for windshield replacement! Here are some tips on what to expect, and how you can prepare your vehicle:

Where: Auto Glass of San Diego is located on the east end of Mission Valley off HWY 8 and the Mission Gorge Rd. exit. Drive north and we are the first business on the right at 5901 Mission Gorge Road, San Diego, CA 92120.

We also provide our customers with mobile auto glass replacement service covering the greater San Diego area as well as North County. We can come to your work, home, or wherever fits your schedule. The glass technician will need easy access to the front end of your vehicle and will also need to be able to open both front doors fully. If possible, back your vehicle in and allow ample room on both sides.

When: Auto Glass of San Diego is open from 8:00-5:00 Monday- Saturday. Our appointments are scheduled in 2 hour windows for the technician’s service. Most windshield/door glass replacements are completed in 90 minutes, & rock chip repairs take 30 minutes. Please let us know if you have special scheduling needs, and we will do everything possible to work with you.

How: The glass technician will begin by removing the wipers, windshield trim, and the cowl as needed. Then a variety of tools are used to release the old windshield from its adhesive. Most of the old adhesive will be removed, leaving only enough for the new adhesive to bond to. The new adhesive is applied creating the weather seal and bonding the new windshield to your vehicle. Next the new windshield is placed, and the wipers, trim, and cowl are replaced. After it has been cleaned, the windshield is ready for your inspection.

After care is important for the next 24 hours. The technician will go over this with you.

After care:-Let vehicle sit for at least 1 hour
-Open passenger windows 1 to prevent air pressure when the door is pulled shut
-Leave blue tape on for 24 hrs. (if applicable)
-Do not wash vehicle for 48 hours
