SIX (6") inches above or next to the state inspection certificate.
It depends on the size of the crack. Windows cannot have any broken glass or cracks greater than 1 inch in the windshield wiper area, no cracks greater than 2 inches outsi…de of it or any cracks longer than 3 inches that extend into this area.
No, it must be repaired and/or replaced.
If you have comprehensive insurance, yes. Odds are however a decently priced windshield shouldn't be too much higher or is more than likely lower than your deductible, w…hich you would have to come up with on such a claim. It is probably in your best interest to pay for a replacement windshield yourself.
You must replace the window. Then you can sell it.
It is very unlikely because that is a sever safety hazard. It is possible to pass it, but that would be illegal in most, if not, all states.
Despite many other answers that tell you "No", you are still able to pass a vehicle safety inspection in Missouri. I have a car which is passed each year with a crack running …from top to bottom of the windshield. It only passes because it is not in my field of view. A few places may fail it because they don't know, but the law says it passes. Straight from the Missouri CSR: (4) Inspect glazing for proper markings, for material or conditions that obscure driver's vision such as stickers or tinting, and cracks, distortion or other damage. Also inspect operation of window at driver's left. (G) Glazing (Glass). 1. If equipped with a windshield, it must provide a clear vision of the road ahead. 2. Reject vehicle: A. If the windshield is cracked, scarred or defaced to the extent that it does not provide a clear vision.
Yes, but the cracked windshield will decrease the value of the car. You will probably have more success finding a buyer if you replace the windshield.
Of course you can.
You look out your window the whole time. And cover it up with a tarp or something, the cops will get you, if they see a cracked windsheild.
You can not have a crack in your windshield to pass inspection
In Texas Law
No, a vehicle must be equipped with a windshield as equipped from the factory or as an OEM type replacement. Vehicles such as Jeep Wranglers may drive with their windshields f…olded down in some states under the technicality that the vehicle is "equipped" with a windshield, even though it is not in the upright position. Included in this technicality is the fact that the Jeep factory equips the Wrangler vehicles with the ability to fold without any modifications.
In Car Selling
Yes, but I would advise against it. You would be setting yourself up for liability if the broken windshield cause the owner to have an accident. Spend the money to have it rep…laced. You may even get it done for free through your insurance. It will make the car worth more and you will recoup the price of the windshield when you sell the car even if you have to pay for the repair yourself.
it depends if you have a double glazed or heated front windshield then its perfectly legal however if the thickness of the glass falls below 13mm or cannot with stand 10N per …cm^2 per tonne then you will if stoped be first pointlessly questioned about whether you have another windscreen on you or not, as obviously you would have changed it, and then detained for dangerous driving. however this is all asuming that the crack doesn't impeed on you sightlines thus hindering your vision. this will be assesed by the german police who are infact know world wide for being so pedantic about the quality of the cars exterior parts. However if you are driving a volkswagon beetle then the will assume that the measurements are correct and send you on your way
It depends on each individual state but as a general norm, yes it is required.
