A quick overview of everything you need to know about replacing your Honda windshield, including costs, safety, and calibrating your Honda windshield properly.
Replacing Your Honda Windshield
Replacing a damaged windshield on your Honda vehicle is usually no different than most other car manufacturers. The windshield style may differ depending on your model and year, but the process is typically the same. We always recommend having a professional trained in auto glass replacement do the work. Here’s what the process looks like:
Removing the Old Honda Windshield: First, the windshield replacement technician will need to remove the old Honda windshield. This is usually done with special tools designed for this purpose.
Prepping the New Honda Windshield: Once the old Honda windshield is removed, the new one will need to be prepared. This process usually involves cleaning the area around the opening and applying a sealant and primer, depending on the type of windshield. A bead of urethane will also be applied around the frame of the windshield. The urethane is what secures and seals the windshield in place.
Setting the New Honda Windshield: Next, the new Honda windshield will need to be positioned into place. The technician may do this by hand, or use special tools to set the windshield into the frame.
Installing Trim: Next, the new technician will install any trim that was removed during the windshield removal process. Typically this includes new rubber or plastic trim pieces.
Clean the New Honda Windshield: After securing the new Honda windshield, the glass will need to be cleaned thoroughly. This is usually done with a special glass cleaner and a microfiber cloth.
Minimum Driveaway Time: The urethane must cure for a specific period of time before the vehicle can be driven. The “minimum driveway time” will depend on many factors including temperature, humidity, and the type of urethane used. Typical driveway times range between 30-60 minutes.
Testing the New Honda Windshield: The final step is to take a test drive with the new Honda windshield. The technician must ensure that everything is secure, that the seals are in place, and that there are no leaks.
