  • They say "Timing Is Everything"

    Well as the saying go’s “Timing is everything”. This is "BAD Timing". I’m getting ready to sell my 2014 Z51 and today I’m driving down the expressway heading to church (yeah CHURCH!!) and all of a sudden “ping” and a ¼” size circular ding shows up smack dab right in front of me where I look thru the windshield. Now this car is basically pristine, 18000 miles, and selling it for my new C8. Sooo, I have no other alternative but to replace the windshield, if I want to get the best price possible.

    I’ve never replaced a windshield on any of my previous Corvettes. I started looking around at the windshield and found at the bottom corner passenger side area of the windshield is stamped “HUD”, which I figured is “Heads Up Display” which I have.

    I’m assuming this means I need to get it replaced at my dealership. Can anyone give me some guidance on this situation or any other ideas of what I can do. I know it’s going to be expensive. Thanks for any advice you can give me.

    You probably have glass coverage on your vehicle. If you call before it cracks really badly they can fix this under your glass coverage.

    you are mot alone amd this past year or two ago i added full coverage for windshield replacement but if you do this relatively quickly they can often repair the damage right at your home or your office and I believe the repair is covered by insurance..

    good luck and be grateful it wasnt a car accident...this is just lifes way of saying hello...remember me?

    Best wishes

      You do not need to get it replaced at your dealership. I regrettably know this from personal experience. However, many windshields that are now being produced are less than satisfactory in terms of waviness. My body shop sub contracts with the best glass specialist in our area. It took forever, because the first one when it arrived a week later, he rejected, then we waited for the next one to arrive and he rejected, he rejected, but the third one was perfect.

      Find the best glass installer in your area and have an upfront heart to heart with him/her as to your expectations. Best of luck.

        In Florida if you have full coverage then your windshield is fully covered with zero deductible. It would be worth checking your coverage.

          That can actually be repaired without replacing the windshield.

            I've had the infamous stress crack on my C7 and it was replaced under warranty. It's an LT3 so I did need to get the HUD windshield that was ordered by the dealership, but installed by a subcontractor, not the dealership shop. I'd imagine that any of the glass replacement companies can get their hands on the proper windshield for you.

              Good News... That can be repaired! Get it done right away though.

              I just replaced the windscreen on my mercedes and were it not for the insurance coverage it would have remained a cracked windscreen! Was actually really good glass and seems to have less distortion that the OEM screen did... but it was NOT cheap!

                I had Safelite patch the circular ding for $75.00 and it looks pretty **** good. Now, I have stopped looking cross eyed thru the windshield. Cost for a new windshield with labor is $ 1,036.00.
