So I was driving at the 57 freeway today and a truck launched a tiny pebble from its wheel and hit my windshield, now it has a crack the size of a quarter. Is there anyone who can recommend a place around 626 area who can fix it or is it even possible to fix a cracked window? Any help would be appreciated, thank you.

where and how much

I don't know any place but I heard that the sooner you get the crack fix the better

Yeah I heard about it, I just hope it doesn't spread while I look for a shop who can fix it.

If you do end up getting a replacement, try to get an OEM one. My aftermarket one that my insurance gave me sucks. Two of the problems i had was how the bottom right side "hole" doesn't line up with the vin numbers and how water smears on the glass which makes visibility horrible.

I had the same size crack on my old integra and i rolled that way for the looooongest time until some moron hit me head on. Give it some time and as long as u don't see any little hairline fractures start to appear then I wouldn't worry. However, it is a TSX and not a teggy so if it were my car I would replace it with oem only!! There are many other places, some mobile, that can replace it as well but they're mostly hit or miss. Any pics of the damage?

actually just found a place for 30 dollars in walnut. the crack is basically the size of a corn kernel with 6 other cracks coming out of the middle, so its like a small star.

well i have an appointment tomorrow and Ill let you guys know how it goes, so far its the cheapest out of the bunch that quoted me.

I just got it fixed, its hard to take pics with my camera phone, but the result is amazing. I say its 10% visible, the cracks where its used to be is like a hairline if you look closely but from far away you can't even tell. At least I'm not worried anymore about the cracks spreading and replacing my window.

Yea don't stress about hairline cracks. I have plenty of those from rock chips.
