really depends,if they can drill into bothends and halt the crack and its out of the MOT regulation area then yes but most likely your better getting it replaced.do you have windscreen cover in your insurace?

I think the AA or RAC or someone used to advertise a resin injection process to fix cracks. Not sure how big a crack this can sort, but might be worth checking out. :D

You should check on your insurance policy - i am covered for glass damage - it would cost 50 on my insurance but it doesnt touch your no-claims (usually).

I agree, if a repair then totally free, if not and replacement needed, then 50 usually to pay, no affect on NCB.

But you only tend to get this option if fully comp.

You can only repair chips that are no bigger than 10mm really, 8 cm cracks is a replacement.
