: Windshield replacement

07-09-08, 05:03 PM
How long should it take to get my windshield replaced? Dropped it off at 8am this morning and now its parked in the lot with tape around the windshield. They told me I could pick it up around 3 or 4 but should it take this long? Does it need to be parked until the glue is 100% dry?

Yes it depends what glue they are using.
Some of them are safe to drive after 2hrs some after 6hrs. Usually 6 when your car is equipped with airbags.

As said above it can take that long just to be safe. :)

And don't wash until at least a day or two, then spray with a hose to make sure there is no leak.

They did mine on my driveway in about an hour and a half. I couldn't move it for the rest of the day, or wash it for 4.

I took it to the local dealer. Dropped it off at 830 am and had it delivered back at 430pm. They even washed it for me, and today its pissin rain, and no leak. So i'm happy :D
