    Windscreen chip/crack repair

    I have a small (~1cm) stone chip that I want to stop from spreading outwards.

    Anyone recommend a garage that does decent windscreen repairs?

    I am in NT, but don't mind driving for the right service.

    most comprehensive insurance policies cover one screen replacement per year (I believe screen became MOT failure item)

    This is pretty simple to do yourself, get the windscreen repair kit which comes with the special glue, suction cup like tool, razor scraper thingy, and the windscreen is as good as new. You really cannot see where the crack was. But yes its important to do early before it spreads.

    Ok so I ended up finding a guy that does repairs on site.

    Few hundred - 600 depending on the size of the chip.
