How to repair auto glass
You will need a windshield crack repair kit with suction cups, available at any car parts store, razor blade, hairdryer if required, 2 cloth pieces. Pick any loose glass chips from the crack with the razor blade. Clean the area rigorously with a damp cloth. Pat area completely with a clean cloth, using a hairdryer if necessary to remove all the water from the auto glass crack. Center the suction cups around the center of the crack or chip, firmly to the car. Insert the tube into the center of the suction cups, making sure that it is secured tightly.
Pour the repair material in the tube. Insert the plunger into the tube and push down on it, squirting the repair material onto the chip. The pressure will cause the material to squirt into the base of the chip and throughout any cracks. Remove the tube and suction cups after one minute. Place the film that was included in the repair kit over the crack or chip.
Use the razor blade to flatten the film and the repair material completely. Wait for 15 minutes for it dry fully. Remove the film from the auto glass. Use the blade to scrape off any excess repair material.
