    Nothing, it needs to be replaced. In Mass it is covered under your ins, but a lot of places you have to have comprehensive coverage.

    you can buy a gel-like substance kit at walmart. or you can call safelite and see what they can do. you probably should replace the windshield soon though

    Don't have any vibrations, drive over any bumps or let it freeze and thaw. Other than that the crack shouldn't get any bigger. (in other words - don't move the truck)


    ........you either live with the crack going across until it terminates on the other side or get a new window.

    safelite quoted me $252.95 using a random LI zip code. go here for an instant, and more accurate quote. said somewhere if the crack is smaller than a dollar bill it can be repaired

    Shop around locally. I have a windsheild guy I go through for my shop and so far, I haven't had one over $175. I'm not talking chinese "warbly" glass either. He comes to me, he's fast, and he guarantees no leaks. You can probably find someone (small business) locally like that.
