While you might know a thing or two about fixing a car, replacing your windscreen is something that entails the utmost care and certain skills to do it accurately. A badly fixed windscreen can easily mean another accident waiting to happen and you wouldn’t want that to be the case.

The foremost thing to do in restoring a windscreen is to remove the wipers and the mirrors. Fix a tape on the heating vent.

The glass is attached to the windshield frame, with the help of a rubber gasket. Also inspect the rubber gasket for damages or cracks. You need to replace it if damages are already present. Take it out by gently cutting the border of the gasket.

Now take the damaged glass out of the frame, by gently pushing it from inside the car. Attach the rubber gasket to the new windshield. See that thicker edge of the windshield is fixed along the inner side of the glass.

Once you fit the rubber gasket, remove the dust and rust from the dashboard and window frame. Apply some petroleum jelly to the outer side of the rubber gasket and carefully place the windshield frame from outside of the vehicle. Push the rubber gasket a bit to keep the glass in place. You need to eliminate the petroleum jelly and connect the mirror and the wipers.
