WE'LL TAKE CARE OF YOUR WINDSCREEN ACCORDING TO VOLVO'S STANDARDS
Any windscreen can be subject to damage, but thankfully it can be remedied swiftly by your Volvo workshop so you can enjoy your clear view again.
If it's a minor damage, such as a stone chip, we can often perform a repair right away. And the sooner it's fixed, the better. Otherwise the whole windscreen may have to be replaced. It will take approximately half an hour for us to repair the damage according to Volvo's high safety demands, and the repair will be virtually invisible.
WHAT IF IT SHOULD'T BE REPAIRED?
Since the windscreen is important for the safety, Volvo recommends that only damages smaller than 25 mm, or in some cases 15 mm, are repaired (see illustration below). If the damage is larger, or located in the direct line of sight, it is necessary that we replace the windscreen for you.
A VOLVO GENUINE WINDSCREEN – AND THE RIGHT GLUE!
The windscreen stands for a significant part of the car’s structural strength and is important for your protection, and it also functions as support to the front passenger airbag. Therefore, it is vital that it is installed properly in order not risking to come loose in a collision.
A poorly installed windscreen may seriously compromise your safety. When you let us perform the replacement, you know that you get a Volvo Genuine Windscreen, and that it is installed by Volvo-trained technicians using the right kind of glue and methods. You will know that the activators and the fast-hardening PUR glue are applied according to safe routines and without taking “shortcuts”. You can also trust that the removal of the old windscreen is performed swiftly and with the use of modern methods eliminating the risk for damages to body or paint.
Damage in green areas can be repaired if it's not larger than 25 mm.
Damage in the yellow area - can be repaired if it's not larger than 15 mm.
Damage in the driver's main vision area, near the roof or the near the A pillars should not be repaired - the windscreen has to be replaced.
