Reliable, hassle-free windscreen replacement from the experts.

A cracked windscreen is always unexpected and usually frustrating, but with O’Brien, we make the replacement process easy for you.

Your windscreen contributes up to 30% of your vehicle’s structural strength, so it’s crucial to have a replacement windscreen installed by a expert vehicle glass technician, correctly using the appropriate tools, materials and thorough process. Incorrect fitting could result in water leaks, rust or whistling sounds.

Our skilled technicians can replace your windscreen in around 90 minutes, or within a day if your vehicle needs ADAS recalibration. Choose O’Brien to ensure a job done right the first time, so you can drive away with peace of mind.

Following the detailed O’Brien best-practice fitting process, your technician will ensure a quality windscreen fit for your vehicle.

  • First, we cover your vehicle with industrial-strength padding for protection
  • We remove any visible shattered glass from your vehicle’s interior before safely removing the rear window seals using our Ezi-wire technology and preparing the aperture
  • We clean and prepare the replacement glass, accurately applying a bead of our latest urethane to the edges
  • We precisely fit your new rear window using our 1-Tek® lifting tool to ensure the perfect fit
  • Lastly, we’ll check again to ensure we have removed all visible glass pieces from your seat and floor, for your passengers’ comfort

How long does a windscreen replacement take?

It takes around 90 minutes for our O’Brien technicians to replace a windscreen. After the new windscreen is in place, all you need to do is wait for 15 minutes and you can drive away with confidence.

If your vehicle has ADAS features, the forward-facing camera may need to be recalibrated after your windscreen is replaced, which takes additional time.

We recommend avoiding washing your car (by hand or drive-through car wash) or touching, pushing or putting any pressure on the new glass within the first 24 hours after replacement, as this may interfere with the adhesive setting process.


Book yourself in quickly online or give us a call.

How much does a windscreen replacement cost?

The cost of replacing your windscreen will depend on several factors such as the vehicle make and model, if your vehicle has ADAS technology (which may mean a Cal-Tech® Recalibration will be required), and whether you have insurance coverage for glass damage.

As Australia’s leading vehicle glass specialists, we work closely with most major insurance providers. If you are insured with glass cover and no excess, your repair or replacement will more than likely be at no cost to you. Plus, we often can even lodge the claim for you!
