Need a Windscreen Replacement?
No matter the make or model of your car, if you need a windscreen replacement then our O’Brien® specialist technicians are ready to assist.
Did you know that a windscreen accounts for up to 30% of a vehicle’s structural strength? Your windscreen is not only important for car safety but if a windscreen replacement isn’t fitted correctly, there could be issues such as leaks, rust, or whistling sounds. Choosing an expert to do the job means you can drive away with peace of mind.
If your car has forward safety cameras we also offer a recalibration service after a windscreen replacement for many vehicle types, using our Cal-Tech® system. For some vehicle models where the Cal-Tech® system is not yet available, we have relationships with many car manufacturer dealerships and will gladly arrange the recalibration on your behalf.
In around 60-90 minutes (for a standard windscreen replacement) O’Brien® can get you back on the road, fast and safe! We use only quality glass that’s compliant with Australian and international standards – meaning you drive away knowing the job has been done right. Call 1800 815 414 to speak to our experts.
How is a Windscreen Replaced?
- We protect your vehicle’s interior using padded bonnet covers and seat protection covers.
- We safely remove the windscreen from your vehicle using our Ezi-Wire tool, which uses a tough string to cut round the windscreen seal as opposed to using sharp metal knives.
- We apply a primer to the vehicle’s framework, and a strong bonding glue to the new windscreen.
- We carefully fit your new windscreen in place using our expert 1-Tek® tool. This allows our technicians to safely and accurately lift and position your windscreen correctly.
How do you know which windscreen to replace in my vehicle?
When booking in your Windscreen Replacement with O’Brien®, our customer service experts will ask you a few questions to accurately identify the exact windscreen required for your vehicle. Because every vehicle make and model windscreen fits differently, we have the latest vehicle glass fitting instructions for even some of the newest vehicle makes and models on the market, so our expertly trained technicians always know what to do.
What if my car has cameras – will the windscreen replacement affect this?
Most manufacturers require vehicles with forward facing cameras that form part of driver assist systems (such as automated braking, lane departure warnings etc.) to be recalibrated after a windscreen replacement. If the camera is a few millimetres out, it may no longer function as the manufacturer intended, which could increase the risk of collision. At O’Brien®, we stay up to date with advances in technology – that’s why we’ve introduced a tool specifically designed to check that the camera that looks through your windscreen is calibrated and working properly before you leave. We call this technology Cal-Tech® recalibration. And, we believe the safest option is to recalibrate the camera where the manufacturer requires it. To make it easy and save you time, in many cases, we can perform both a windscreen replacement and a Cal-Tech® recalibration at the same time.
How much does it cost to replace a windscreen?
You may think it’s a simple as just replacing a piece of glass – but these days the cost of a windscreen replacement depends on several different factors. These include:
- Make, model and age of your vehicle.
- Features and technology embedded into the windscreen.
- If you have an insurance policy which covers glass replacement.
One thing is for certain – we’ll get your glass fixed fast without sacrificing safety or quality.
