When we first get our car, we promise ourselves that we will be careful with it because we all know that cars don’t come cheap and dealing with the cost of auto repairs can sometimes put a major dent on our wallet. So, we follow all the rules, get regular maintenance checks and never get reckless. However, we can’t always avoid the worst possible outcome regardless of how careful we may be. Getting into an accident is that worse-case scenario and all you can do by the end of it is deal with the damage.
If you went it for windshield replacement and repairs, it is important for you to be able to identify a faulty one because a bad windshield replacement job will not be able to protect you in case you may ever have another accident, plus it can be dangerous regardless. So, there are a few ways you can identify a faulty or incorrect windshield replacement.
- This counts as an error on your part, but if you don’t let the adhesive dry and use your car immediately after the replacement job, your windshield will not be installed properly. You need to wait at least 6-8 hours after the replacement job to be able to use your car again.
- One of the most obvious ways you can tell that your windshield isn’t installed correctly is to see it bounces or rattles as you are driving. This becomes more pronounced and apparent when you suddenly use your breaks or come across speed bumps, meaning the adhesive isn’t doing its job properly.
- If you notice that your vision from the windshield appears almost wavy as you look out from it, it means that your windshield’s alignment is off and that it needs to be taken to the auto repair shop again.
