3 Signs Your Windshield Hasn’t Been Installed Properly

The windshield is one of the most important components of your yar car, but it’s also one of the most fragile ones. Windshield damage is common. However, many people make the mistake of replacing their windshields themselves to save costs. A windshield needs to be installed properly to ensure its functionality and your safety. It’s a job that needs to be done by two or more professionals to be done perfectly. Here are some signs of a poorly installed windshield.

1.    Odd Sounds When Driving

One of the biggest and clearest signs of a poorly installed windshield is if you hear odd noises or sounds when driving. These noises are not common and are definitely not present when the windshield is installed properly. These sounds are made when there’s a gap between the windshield glass and the frame from where air passes through. The loudness of the sound depends on how big the gap between the windshield and the frame is and the speed at which you’re traveling. The higher the speed, the louder and more frequent the sound will be.

2.    Wavy Glass

If you replace your windshield and notice waves or inconsistencies on the glass, that’s a sign that there’s something wrong and your windshield hasn’t been installed properly. A perfectly installed windshield has little to no glare, no waves, and is perfectly smooth. This also comes down to the quality of the glass used. Poor-quality glass often has more glare and can appear wavy, especially when light strikes it directly. Make sure to get a windshield made of the finest quality glass.

3.    Water Seeps into the Car

Modern cars are designed to not allow any water or moisture inside the vehicle. However, many people complain about water seeping inside the car’s interior space after they have gotten their windshield replaced, for instance, when they get their car washed or after heavy rainfall. Water leaking from the windshield into the car is one of the most obvious signs that your windshield wasn’t installed properly. A windshield that has been fitted properly with adequate glue doesn’t allow any moisture or water to seep in.
