Debunking Myths Related to Windshield Repairby Deepika Singh Writer Windshields, although strong are prone to damage with time. While accidents are the most common reason, lack of maintenance also plays a part. Since your windshield performs the most important function, ignoring the damage is something you must never do. However big or small the crack on your windshield, you must always treat it as soon as possible.
No matter what type of damage it is - be it a chip, crack or any other type, it can prove to be a disaster. The reason why most of the people tend to ignore the problem is due to misconceptions associated with professional repair or replacement. People, for instance, think that the repair cost for their Mahindra Xylo windshield is going to be way too high. This often becomes a sufficient reason to let the damage remain as it is.
While many might think that avoiding the problem for some time will work, this can lead to big blunders. In fact, by doing this, you are putting your life at risk. After all, windshields are the most sensitive parts of an automobile and play the most important role in the security and structural integrity of your vehicle. Here we consider some of the most common myths and beliefs related to windshield repair:
Myth #1 – The damage is insignificant. I can easily drive around with it
This is one of the most common misconceptions related to windshield damage. As mentioned earlier, the damage to the windshield is critical and is something which can get exacerbated if not treated on time. Moreover, a windshield with damage is highly vulnerable. Hence, driving around with it can be a great risk.
Myth # 2 – Replacement can easily be avoided with repair
While some type of damage can be repaired, this doesn’t mean that repair can be done when there’s actually a need for replacement. In fact, repairing will not only waste your time but also money as you might still need a replacement. You must always talk to a technician to find out if the damage can be repaired or a replacement is necessary.
Myth # 3 - Getting that minor chip fixed will take a lot of time
This can be true in certain cases where the damage is not just restricted to the windshield, but other parts as well. You can get a small chip fixed when spending an Exide car battery price on a replacement. But with doorstep facilities, time is never a constraint. Repair work anyway doesn’t take more than 45 minutes.
Myth # 4 – Damage can be fixed on own
Avoiding taking your vehicle to the service center thinking that it can be fixed ay home is one big mistake. Windshield damage repair is a job which can be done only if you have the required expertise and experience. This is not something which anyone can do without prior knowledge. Hence, no matter the extent of damage, it is always best to trust an expert for the same.
