Default f**k SafeLite

today i got my windsheild replaced at a SafeLite shop. i sat there for 1.5hrs reading truck mags(all they had -.-) and watching them giggle at my civic. when i got it back i got in and drove off then i noticed a nice lagre glob of polyurathena protroding onto my dash on the passnger side. i then looked arond to see there was more on both apillers and the headliner. so
i turned around and guned it. when i got bac to the shop i looked over it carefully and noticed the sithy job they did puting in the window molding, it was sticking up around the windsheild abt a 1/4inch and the was a nice gapeing hole on the top drviers corner. went ask the service writer to grab the tech who did my car. she didnt grab the guy who worked on it but a guy who had been working there a long time. i talk to him in the most calm voice i could and he told me. the guy who worked on your car is newish, oem fits WERID but he did tell me i could come back tomorrow and getthe exesse poly scaped off my car. anyone ever have thos konda of an exp. when getting a new windowshield or any kinda of glass? and how would you handle this any better?

Bummer, sounds like you would have better luck going to pretty much any other shop.

That install is just terrible. I would have lost it. Why wouldn't they fix it right away?

Exactly why I'm paranoid about having anything done to my car by some random douche. What a shitty experience, I feel for you.

Well it sounds like they're at least going to try to make it right so that should mean something shouldn't it?

Ok,0 so i went back today (30mi one way) and the guy looked it over and cleaned it up, and was he said seemed to makes sense today. he was going to redo whole install but his manager wasn't there so i will have to come back tomorrow for him to redo it if his boss aggress which imo now should be no issue. there going to redo if with aftermaket molding to better fit the "aftermarket windshield".

I had Safelite mobile do an aftermarket windshield install on my '92 VX hatch with minimal sealant squish. He said he was into cars himself and I got him talking about my plans to boost it. He did a good job for me. Its hit or miss, and it seems like you unfortunately got a noob install tech. Bummer...but it sounds like they'll set you straight. Minus the gas money.

i fix safelite problems everyday at work. its nothing new for me to see

safelite only train there worker for 6 weeks and send them on the road by them selfs

windshields should never be installed by one person, because it puts alot of stress on the glass and because once the glass is in the glue you dont have much play room to move the windshield where it needs to be without causing problems.

i recommend small shops with 10 years or more of experience

"OEM molding doesnt fit very well"

^^^thats bullshit^^^

and btw that is not an OEM molding that is saftlite aftermarket molding

i watched him and 3 other guys put the glass IN, the EXP GUY did the glue, but the NOOB did everything else. one guy there who didnt touch my car but did oogle over my DIY LCD ecu readout in the cupholder and the ecu with lexan cover in the passenger foot well. hes was into hondas and talked to me for a bit on how he use to have a crx with a dohc zc, now has a 5th gen lude, while wait and couldn't comprehed Truck mags.

when i talked to d****, he said there are certain cars that they know the "OEM" molding wont fit, he called em germlins, and he stated basically all 90's Hondas among others?!?! you sir are wise, rep for you

There is only one place that I trust to do glass for me.

Sucks man. I had one put in by a shop that was cheap, and it is/was obvious why it was a cheap job.

They fucked my buddies hatch up, molding was all jacked, gave him a tinted windshield when he wanted non-tinted, etc etc. Contrarily I was happy when they did mine a couple months back except for the fact that they left me with no rear view mirror because it wasn't oem and wouldn't slide on the new bracket.
