  Hi,i have1993 Opel Vectra sedan and yesterday,while i was changing the windshield wipers i accidentally broke my windshield.....i mean I pushed the wiper arm and it slammed on the windshield.

I really felt bad after that and i am really scared that this crack will continue spreading accros my windshield.I cant afford new windshield or used :(

 

I invested all of my money from work in this car and now this...

One friend told me that this crack its not dangerous and will not affect other parts but i really dont know what to do.

 

Here are some pictures and i think that the big crack that is going right to the driver was not there yesterday.Also the crack is down in the window,i cant feel and scratches outside.

 

Will this crack spread around? Is it safe to drive on highway at high speed ?

Need your advice.Thank you

The crack has propagated, you have to change it sooner or later. Car insurance usually has windshield replacement clause with certain amount of excess.

Looking at the photos, it seems that the crack has spread to the side (edge). I am sorry to say that you will have to replace the windscreen sooner or later.

The crack looks bad. if you want o save some money, can try some of these shops and see if the could help you repair it but dont bet too much hope on it.  You google around for windscreen crack repair for more shops.

I presume you are only covered Third Party insurance since it's a 25yrs old car. Thus, windscreen replacement is not covered by your insurance. However, you need to replace it, given the degree of the damage. Sourcing one may an issue. Check if the shop of they accept installments.

Sorry if I sounded direct, I'm just stating the reality.

Not really worth a repair, save some money and look for a new windshield and it will be much cheaper than doing a repair and then replacing it

You have one rare car here.

 

Maybe get advice from those window repair shops that Ct3833 has suggested.

Maybe can be fixed.

Worse case scenario is to import one.

I got hit by a stone while driving on KJE the other night and realised that a bit of glass chipped off with a crack of over a centimetre long. I checked on SgCarmart for a repair shop and selected Dr Glass based on the many compliments they received.
