Fixing a chip in your windshield is important because it can prevent the damage from spreading and causing more serious problems. Here are the steps you can follow to fix a chip in your windshield:

  1. Clean the area around the chip with a mild detergent and water.
  2. Dry the area completely with a clean cloth.
  3. Apply a small amount of clear nail polish or windshield repair resin to the chip. Be sure to follow the instructions on the package carefully.
  4. Use a toothpick or similar tool to gently spread the resin over the entire area of the chip.
  5. Allow the resin to dry completely, usually for at least an hour or two.
  6. Once the resin has dried, use a razor blade or sharp knife to carefully remove any excess resin from the surface of the windshield.
  7. Polish the area with a soft cloth to restore the clarity of the windshield.

It’s important to note that fixing a chip in your windshield is a temporary solution and may not prevent further damage. If the chip is larger than a quarter or is in the driver’s line of sight, it’s best to have the windshield replaced by a professional.
