4 Auto Glass Repair Tips to Keep Rain Out of Your Car, Honolulu, Hawaii

When you’re on the road, a pebble that hits your windshield or windows can cause cracks and chips that allow water into your car the next time it rains. If you don’t have immediate access to auto glass repair services, there are a few simple steps you can take to keep your car dry.

Here, the experts at Roy’s Auto Glass Shop of Honolulu, HI, share their best tips for keeping rain out of your car until you can bring it in for service:

  • Dry the Area: If the leak is coming from a tiny chip, you can dry the surface using a blow-dryer set to medium heat. Any water that seeps through your window’s lamination can cause irreversible damage, so make sure it is as dry as possible before attempting any other repairs.

  • auto glass repair Honolulu HIClean the Surface: Instead of using detergent and water, use acetone to remove dirt from your glass. This product tends to dry much faster than water without leaving behind any residue.

  • Apply an Adhesive: Some automotive stores sell windshield repair kits that allow you to seal your cracked or chipped windshield. After applying the adhesive, use a smooth object, like a credit card, to remove any air bubbles.

  • Get It Repaired: The adhesive kit only provides temporary protection against the rain; putting off professional repairs may allow cracks to worsen until you need a more expensive window replacement. Drive to your local auto glass repair shop to let the experts handle the damage.
