    Back Glass Repair

    Back Glass Replacement Services

    Glass damage like chips and cracks don’t just happen to your front windshield. Road debris, weather-related incidents, and auto accidents can also affect your car’s back glass / rear windshield and cause considerable damage. Because the back glass is manufactured differently than front windshields, repairs aren’t typically an option due to safety standards. 


    Back Glass Repair in San Diego, CA

    One might believe that only front windscreens are prone to cracks and chips. However, rear glass windshields can sustain significant damage as a result of weather-related incidents, flying debris, and car accidents. These chips and cracks are not only unsightly but also dangerous because your car’s windshields are responsible for their integrity in the event of a collision.

    It is critical to keep your rear windshield clear of frost and clean, as well as free of dangerous chips and cracks. This is required for good navigation as well as being safe and comfortable while riding.


    Why You Need Auto Glass Specialists for Emergency Rear Window Shield Repair Services

    Any damage to your vehicle’s windshield should be treated as an emergency, requiring same-day repair services because:

    • The damage worsens. A single chip or crack in the windscreen can worsen when driving on a bumpy road. Any additional impact, such as rattling, can cause a small chip to grow into a large, irreparable crack. Weather conditions such as hailstones, temperature fluctuations, and even extremely loud music can exacerbate the damage to the windshield.
    • There is decreased visibility. Because visibility is so important while driving, cracks, and chips in a windshield can enter the driver’s line of sight, creating a safety hazard due to obstructed visibility.
    • Compromised safety. The greatest hazard to a driver’s, and passenger’s safety is cracked or broken glass, whether on a windshield or a window.
    • Decreased vehicle market value. Selling your vehicle with a cracked windshield will be challenging, as no one will pay for a partially damaged car. You would have to quote a lower price than the vehicle’s worth.


    Back Windshield Glass Replacement Services You Can Rely On

    At Auto Glass Specialists, we try to repair any spider webs and cracked glass on your existing rear windscreen before replacing it with a brand-new one. However, the size, position, and damage of the back glass windscreen can sometimes render it irreparable.

    But don’t worry, our expert technicians are fully trained and experienced in replacing back glass. When installing a replacement back glass windshield, we use glass that matches the original’s specifications and is just as good.


    Our Rear Glass Replacement Process

    Our team of dedicated expert technicians handles back-rear window replacement the same way as front windshield replacements.

    1. We will carefully detach the damaged back glass on-site and in the shop, remove any debris, and clean the opening. We will do everything possible to remove all shattered glass from the vehicle, including cleaning the interior. Following that, we will remove all of the glue and seals that keep the rear windscreen in place.

    2. Apply an adhesive that is Auto Glass Safety Council (AGSC) approved, to the rear windscreen opening. Then a special bonding glue; to ensure a proper strong fit is achieved.

    3. Following the AGSC procedure, place the new rear glass into the opening. At this point, we request that you observe the drive-away time recommended; to allow the adhesive to dry for safe driving.

    The back windshield replacement cost will depend on the model and make of your vehicle and whether there is a rear window defroster, or not. Some insurance policies, however, can cover most or all of the necessary back glass replacement costs.
