It is important to note that chips or cracks in a car window are not always fixed the same way as chips or cracks in a car windshield. Chips in auto windows mean that they generally need to be replaced while auto glass repair is more of an option when it comes to car windshields. Here is a closer look into the process of replacing side windows on a vehicle.
The first part of the process involves a thorough inspection. A technician will examine the entire window for any signs of damage. Once it is determined that auto window replacement is necessary, the technician will proceed accordingly.
The door panel will need to be removed in order to provide the technician full access to the window. In some instances, shards of glass wind up falling inside of the door. There is an obvious need to remove that glass, which leads into the next part of the process.
A Wilson & Tucker Auto Glass technician will then clean the entire area by vacuuming. This will rid the entire area of any remaining pieces of glass. Next, it is time to install a new pane of glass. This is done with careful precision so that the glass fits just as well as the original pane.
The integrity of the technician’s work is double and triple checked in the testing stage as the window is powered up and down repeatedly. Once all those tests have been passed, it is time for the reinstallation of the door panel, which is put back on with the same careful precision.
Even though everything looks to be back in working order, a post-inspection stage follows to ensure the vehicle is thoroughly cleaned and that every aspect of the installation phase has been done correctly.
While this process may seem rather complex, it can be completed relatively quickly. Most side window replacements can be completed start to finish in less than an hour. That means car owners can wait while their window is fixed and they do not have to worry about leaving their vehicle for an extended period of time.
