Crack in windshield

Hi to all. Big fan of the site. I have a 2000 Ford Taurus SES

One question.

1. I have gotten a 3 to 4 inch crack in my windshield.
Do those resins that are injected into the windshield work or do I have to buy a new one?

Thanks to all and my best.

They work on small chips but I've never seen them work on cracks bigger than a quarter.

Re: Crack in windshield

I had a pretty good (2 or 3") crack in mine, Novus came out and filled it, said crack would not continue...One cold morning while using the defroster, crack continued all the way across.

I have seen people drill a small indention at both ends of the crack and never cracked any further.

Might be easier to replace it. I found a budget glass place that did my 01 for 150 bucks. Shop around.

Had a Deer go thru my 2000 last year... had it replaced by AutoGlass for $225.00.

Heck No!! But I did keep the 3 point horn that broke off and imbedded in the Dash....

When the Police got there and was checking things out, He noticed the Horn in the dash. He ask if I wanted it as a souvenir LOL
