Ford Cars Windshield Replace and Repair
Maintaining your windshield on your Ford car is necessary to ensure safe driving conditions. The windshield protects you from flying debris, rain, or even Flagstaff, Arizona’s surprise hailstorms. Driving with a cracked or slightly damaged windshield poses a risk because the crack could worsen from difficult driving conditions and impact visibility.
Diamond Auto Glass offers repair and replacement services to the range of Ford vehicles. Whether your Ford Mustang needs a full windshield replacement or your Ford Fiesta just a needs a chip repaired, Diamond Auto Glass can meet the requirements for the different Ford models.
Determining Your Best Windshield Repair Option
When you first bring your Ford in, the technician will need to identify which process the windshield will need. If a crack is less than six inches in length or the chip is not in the driver’s line of sight, it may be eligible for repair. But if the glass has a pit or the crack is large and has several other cracks extending from it, the glass may need to be replaced.
Ford Windshield Replacements Flagstaff
For the replacement process, the technician may need to remove a few pieces around the windshield so they can carefully pull out the glass. This is just typically the cowl and windshield wipers, but a Ford Focus may have different parts compared to Ford Fusion. Luckily our technicians have the skills to identify what needs to be removed on different models. The replacement process can take between thirty and sixty minutes, and it’s recommended that the vehicle is not driven for one hour after the replacement.
Repairs require a little less time than the replacement. That’s why we suggest bringing your Ford in as soon as the damage has occurred, as the damage can worsen over time. It could then need a replacement instead of the repair. To fix these small chips and cracks, the technicians just apply a resin. This resin fills up the empty areas caused by the damage and it also creates a smooth, even surface throughout the crack.
