Damaged windscreen

It is important to repair a damaged windscreen as soon as possible. Minor damage due to stone chips, for example, can often be repaired without replacing the entire windscreen. Volvo recommends that you contact an authorised Volvo workshop if the windscreen is damaged.

Minor glass damage

If possible, repair the damage within 24 hours in order to avoid it getting worse. If there is minor damage to the windscreen, a windscreen stone chip sticker can protect the area from dust and dirt until it is repaired.

Major glass damage

In the event of major damage to the windscreen, the entire windscreen will need to be replaced.


Do not drive the car if there is major damage to the windscreen. The damage can quickly get worse, obscure driver vision, and prevent the car from being driven safely.

Replacing the windscreen

It is important that the new windscreen and its installation meet Volvo's specifications for safety and compatibility with the car's functions. Volvo recommends an authorised Volvo workshop for windscreen replacement.

Replacing the windscreen in a car with Head-up display*

The windscreen in cars equipped with Head-up display is specially designed to be able to display the projected image. When replacing the windscreen, the correct type of glass needs to be used in order for the Head-up display to work.
