Let’s face it, very few of us actually bother with the condition of our windshield. What most of us don’t realize is that it’s an important component of the vehicle which helps maintain the integrity of its structure.
This is why it’s essential that you make sure there are no problems with the windshield. You need to be especially careful when you replace the old windshield with a new one since even a simple problem like improper installation can lead to dire consequences.
So how do you know that the windshield is not properly installed? You will notice the following the signs:
The ‘Whoosh’ Sound
You hear an annoying ‘whoosh’ sound every time you drive fast? This is a sign that the windshield is not properly installed.
The whole point of a windshield is that it protects your car’s interiors from weather elements. However, when it’s not properly installed, air is able to pass through the cracks. The sound that you hear is that of air passing through the opening in the windshield.
It’s a serious issue and you need to contact a company which offers windshield replacement services in order to deal with it.
Another sign of improper installation is that the windshield makes a rattling noise every time you go over a bump. What this means is that its frame is loose. You need to make sure you get it fixed before the frame gets damaged further.
Water Is Leaking Inside the Car
As stated earlier, the whole point of the windshield is to protect the vehicle’s interiors from weather elements. However, if you notice water leaking inside the car, it’s a sign that there’s a problem with the windshield.
You might think that it’s just a couple of drops of water but we still suggest that you don’t take this problem lightly and address it as quickly as possible.
Glass Appears Wavy
Ideally the windshield should look smooth and straight. If that’s not the case with your car, you might want to get it checked because this is another sign that it hasn’t been properly installed. It can also be a sign of problem with glass quality.
