Yeah, my insurance says glass is normally no deductible, but since the repairs of this windshield will exceed my $500 deductible, I'll need to pay it. That's why I wanted to make sure that this repair is really going to cost over $500.That sounds s terrible, I would be bummed too. if you have glass coverage with your insurance go with it. Mine has zero deductibles for glass.
Are you going to file a claim with insurance? If not, do you know if Safelite will add a markup to ordering the OEM glass for you or can you purchase the glass and have Safelite do it for you? Just curious.But did you get OEM glass? I requested OEM and Safelite says they have to order it, so I'm still waiting... As for my insurance, glass damage is covered under comprehensive coverage which I have set to a $500 deductible.
Is it a sure thing?I will point out that we've seen some issues with non-oem windshield replacements on cars with rain sensing wipers (yours has them). The sensors don't stay attached properly to the aftermarket windshields and cause problems. We've seen it on QX60 and Q50 - and enough to know it isn't a one-off problem.
I've already filed it with my insurance. Just got the work order, it's in total $1,057.63 - $1128.44 including tax. The glass itself (OEM) is $869.82, some rain sensing adhesive is like $10, labor is $144 and some "REVEAL-UPPER" is $50. I have to wait for the glass to be delivered to them, it's a "Limited Availability" item, so they don't keep it in stock (since it's OEM).Are you going to file a claim with insurance? If not, do you know if Safelite will add a markup to ordering the OEM glass for you or can you purchase the glass and have Safelite do it for you? Just curious.
Can it be done right if people know what they are doing, or is that very unlikely?
