When your car window doesn’t roll up or down, it’s often assumed that there is a mechanical failure such as a bad fuse or a motor that’s gone awry. We often observed, however, that it can also be due to broken or cracked glass. The slightest chip or broken piece can become lodged into the track and completely derail or jam the window. If your window doesn’t budge, then you can bring it to the Only 1 Auto Glass service center, and we can inspect the side window for damaged glass and then repair or replace it.
You’re driving down the road, and a few small pebbles ding your windshield. Although there are no major cracks, you notice that there are a few chipped areas. The question is whether you should have the chips repaired or the entire windshield fully replaced. The only way to know for sure is to have an Only 1 Auto Glass technician assess the windshield to see which option is the best for your car.
If you have a small crack in your windshield, it may be able to be repaired by filling it in with resin. Unfortunately, not every crack can be repaired or should be.

And if the crack is along the edge of the windshield, you do not want to repair it; you should replace it. Here are a few reasons why Only 1 Auto Glass recommends replacing the windshield if you have a chip along the edge of the windshield:

Here is some information you will need to know about scratches and your windshield.
