Before getting your Ford windscreen replacement done by a professional, make sure to consider these 5 very very important things. Founded in 1903 by Henry Ford, the Ford Motor Company is a well-known name in the industry. Specialising in the manufacture of SUVs, trucks, cars, and pickups. However, like all cars, they are susceptible to windscreen damage. This is why our team has put together a list of 5 things to consider before getting a Ford windscreen replacement.
1. Do I Need a Ford Windscreen Replacement or Repair?
It can be hard to tell whether your windscreen requires a repair or full replacement. A good rule of thumb is that, if your windscreen chip is smaller than a $1 coin, and is not impeding the driver’s vision, you may only need a repair.
You will need to replace your Ford windscreen if:
- The chip is larger than $1 coin
- There are one or more cracks 3cm or longer on the driver’s side of the windscreen
- Your windscreen has any other damage that obstructs the driver’s line of sight
2. What if the Chip is Too Large to Repair?
If your windscreen has irreparable glass damage, a replacement is necessary. The cost will vary depending on the model of your Ford. It’s important to note that all windscreen repairs in Australia must pass certain safety standards. As a result, you should ensure that you are using a qualified company, like Emergency Windscreens, to ensure your windscreen is replaced properly.
Further, a qualified replacement service, like Emergency Windscreens, will provide you with a warranty on the repair or replacement, as long as you own your vehicle.
