Re: cracked windscreen

Hi there and welcome.

It is possible, but it would be a massive undertaking to prove it. Cracks can also be caused by the vehicle experiencing a severe shock (like a pothole or speed bump).

I'm willing to bet that as much as you'll claim that the car hasn't had a jolt, the repairer will claim he didn't damage the screen.

Glass is the one part of the car which has the least amount of flex, therefore its the part least resistant to any sudden force.

Does your insurance have a provision for replacement glass?



This job should never be complete - the day I think I've done it all, is the day I resign.
