Has anyone had problems with cracking windshields? After a year and a half
of owning my 2001 Focus SE, the first real problem has cropped up. I
noticed last weekend my window has developed about a 7 inch crack starting
from the middle top edge of the windshield. I'm going to see if I can get
it replaced under warrenty, but was curious if anyone else has experienced
I had thought that I had a stress crack on my 2001 ZX3 windshield, but I
took it to the dealer.. and he ran a pen along the crack. and apparently I
had gotta a very very tiny rock chip there. This was very unfortunate
because I would much rather of had a free windshield then driving with a big
crack in it. Anyway, the dealer informed me that stress cracks on the
windshield will occur directly horizontal and must be free of any rock chips
or anything to be covered under warrenty.
Our 2001 Focus SE wagon developed a stress crack in the bottom right hand
corner.It was 3-4 inches up the side and the same across the bottom to the
ends of it. I wouldn't have noticed except I was cleaning the window with
windex and paper towels. The dealer replaced it with out any discussion at
