The Crack in my window didnt get any larger than about an inch and a half accross. They (ABC Glass) were able to fix it for 45.00 bucks.
The guy said they have like 35 employees and a number of shops. you should be able to get a new one for about 200. 00 bucks give or take a few. try your yellow pages for ABC glass. (i cant find my reciept at the moment) Ask them about 1/4 thick glass ...........as what we have is 3/16ths and breaks too easily. happy hunting
p.s. Yes I had my windshield replaced before as well. lowest price I've heard is 180.00 and then dealers want mega buck. but the average is about 240ish.
P.s.s do not clean your window because if it is fixable you are in danger of making the crack worse by letting air into the windshield itself via the crack..........
