A Mobile Window Glass Replacement Process

Airborne materials or a car accident could cause irreparable damage to one of the glass windowpanes in your vehicle. A mobile repair process will include the following steps.

Mobile Glass Replacement Details

A mobile service technician will need to be informed in advance about the make and model of the vehicle that is going to be serviced. They will also need to be provided with concise details about the window type that has endured damage.

Providing a description of the vehicle and damage will allow a technician to prepare the glass pane and automotive tools that will be needed when a mobile repair process takes place. 

The Removal Of The Pane

During an active repair process, an automotive technician will need to remove the door panel where the broken window is installed. This process will require the disconnection of the wiring that is installed behind the door panel. The car window regulator's electrical materials are typically found behind the door panel.

Once these preliminary steps have been conducted, the technician will remove the damaged glass. A technician will manually remove pieces of glass that are stuck in the window frame. They may use a suction tool to collect loose fragments of glass that have fallen onto the seats or floorboard within a vehicle.

The Installation Of Glass

A mobile technician will manipulate the replacement glass pane so that it slides effortlessly into the window frame. During this step, the auto technician will brace the glass. They will make sure that the glass is lined up evenly. Then they will push the glass down into the frame.

The proper positioning will ensure that the rubber seal that surrounds the window frame will lay flush with the edges of the new pane. Unless the seal became torn when the original glass pane was damaged, the existing seal will not need to be replaced.

The technician will reinstall the door panel. This step will require the technician to secure the original hardware pieces that are designed to hold the door panel in place.

The Window Regulator Testing Process

The window regulator testing process will determine if the glass pane was installed precisely. Once the vehicle's ignition is turned on, the technician will activate the lever that is attached to the regulator mechanism. The new glass pane should move smoothly up and down. The glass pane should remain secure within the seal and frame as it is mechanically manipulated.
