You might be tempted to think that windshields don’t ever leak in this part of Nevada. It’s dry for the overwhelming majority of the year, after all, and it’s not like we experience considerable amounts of rainfall in many places. However, those leaks could be letting air, debris and other materials in.
Whenever you drive even slightly outside of the Las Vegas metro, you might also end up having to deal with the possibility of rainfall and moisture. Even a little bit of humidity could cause a problem.
A sizable crack or visible damage to the windshield could certainly make it leak, though it’s also possible that you’re dealing with some kind of gasket failure. When the gaskets around your windshield start to break down, they can let outside matter in. Eventually, small hairline fractures in glass can actually start to spider if left untreated. Once they do, they’ll start to allow water to come in and thus form a leak.
Something as simple as a bit of gentle detergent and water can help you see where the water is coming in from, since the bubbles are quite visible. This also helps to limit the damage that looking for leaks will do. Once it’s obvious that a windshield is leaking, it’s time to either fill the glass or potentially replace the gasket. There’s also a possibility that the windshield itself may need to be swapped out.
Fixing a leak yourself can be difficult, especially if you have no experience working with automotive glass. Like any repair job, our team can tackle leaky windshields on a case-by-case basis and tailor their techniques to the specific vehicle in question. That’s why we’re able to do work for those who have vintage automobiles as well as other specialty cars, such as hot rods.
A fluid leak needs to be repaired based on what’s causing it. Glass replacement may be necessary if there’s any damage to the structural integrity of the glass itself. Gaskets and other pieces could also be replaced in order to ensure that the windshield remains tight to fluid in the future.
Due to the variations between different vehicles, it can be difficult to specify one exact cost for windshield leak repairs. That being said, Team Acme’s prices are aimed to always be considered fair and we don’t cut any corners. That means that you won’t have to worry about a whole bunch of future costs from having to have anything redone in the near future since our team always works hard to get things right the first time.
