Hi,

today I noticed a big crack in bottom left corner of my windscreen. Im pretty sure it wasnt there few days ago. Im just wondering what could cause such a crack. My only guess is a going over a bump?

Going over a bump is unlikely to crack a windscreen unless there was a chip there that you didnt notice.

Thats the thing....Theres no sign of a chip whatsoever, so unless there was a small crack before it looks like the chassis has twisted? Just dont wanna replace it only to find out that it happens again...

We replace windscreens for people everyday that swear that there wasnt a chip in the screen before hand ,on close inspection you can see the chip, sometimes it can be as small as 5mm long and if it is close to the edge it is just waiting to go .

It would be great if that was the case too. Its not really bothering me, its got 2 chips on driver's side so it will go and that means its quite possible there was a chip, still cant see any though :-) thanks
