Side Glass Repair?

Post by RCRNR » February 7th, 2019, 8:27 am

Had a customer come in the other day his driver side window had a chip in it the bug said laminated glass. Is this repaired just like a front windshield? Also is the insurance process the same? I sent him to another shop being I have never done side glass. This seems very uncommon but for future I would appreciate any feed back.

Yes, the repair is the same, pretty much. You need to compensate for the glass being more vertical. It's a little harder to keep the resin at the end of the injector depending on what equipment you're using. I have not had any problems billing insurance, just specify laminated side glass.

Same as a windshield. My experience is the CSR will have to get a supervisor involved. The two i've done they billed as windshield repair.
