    Mysterious windshield crack

    Hello everyone! first post here!

    I just purchased a brand new leftover 04 ESV about a month ago and my windshield developed a crack that starts at the base right in front of the driver. This crack seems to grow about an inch a day and what has me is that there is no point of impact, no chip, no bulls eye, nothing, it grew from under the wiper plastics.

    Has anyone here had a similar problem? I'm taking it to the dealer this week to see what they are going to do about it. Hopefully its a warranty issue. I'm just upset that already I have to have a windshield swaped out...

    Sorry that happened. Do you have glass insurance? A lot of places that do glass seem to go all out, like they'll go to your car and fix it, charge you nothing, and your insurance covers it.

    Yeah I do have free windshield coverage but I'm going to wait and see if the dealer takes care of it, I got a feeling its a factory defect.

    My biggest fear is the removal and installation part. I had a windshield swapped out on my old Yukon (by the dealer) and it looked like they took a grinder to my VIN plate, I was cleaning peaces of glass out for weeks, and my wipers were off (center), along with my rear view mirror. oh well...

    Have you guys ever seen a windshield being removed? I saw one at a Ford dealership once and the guy was using a hand SAW to cut through the sealent at the A pillars.

    I had to get my Infinti QX4's windshield replaced back in the day. It looked fine. I cant imagine cadillac sawing out a windshield. If they do than I would take it to a local windshield store or somewhere to get it replaced. Good Luck tho
