Stone chip on windscreen...

Well with only 600 miles on the clock, my poor little mazda got hit on the windscreen by a large stone thrown up from a lorry going the other way... ? got a large chip and crack right in front of the driver. ??
So a new screen is going to have to be fitted.... Not happy....

On this trip to Florida, I picked up TWO chips from the same truck in Texas. My wife was furious (her new car) so I called insurance company and they had Safelite attempt repair while we were in Florida. One fixed fine other did not so will probably need new shield upon return to Arizona!

Does car insurance cover windscreen repairs/replacement in UK or US? Often included in Australian policies and no excess payable. I have had several windscreens replaced on that basis.

It does but there is a 50-70 excess and minor repairs are done free by agreement between the insurance and windscreen companies.

It falls under the comprehensive part of the policy in the US. My company pays for repairs (chips) in all cases. Replacement is covered by your policy deductible. In other words if windshield costs 600 and your deductible is 100 the company pays anything over that 100 dollars.

It all depends on the level of cover, if you're comprehensive, then its covered, but there is usually an excess associated with a replacement, for repair is usually free.

In my case, the windscreen company decided that the stone chip was too large and in the wrong position (as it is in front of the driver). (See Photo: Coin is a 2 coin of approx. 30mm)

Unfortunately the model is so new, they do not have any screens available so it needs to come from Mazda...!

I am now waiting for them to let me know when the screen is in stock (it been over a week so far..!) so they can come and replace it. Therefore I am still driving around with a chip in the screen. Lets hope it does not turn into a crack, as I'm not sure if I would be able to drive it at that point.

Well this morning they came out to replace my windscreen after 4 weeks of waiting, but unfortunately the chap broke the interior mirror bracket that fixes the mirror to the screen, he tried to glue it back together, but it's just not strong enough to hold and kept breaking.

So my windscreen is fixed but I have no mirror....! They are ordering a replacement part.. Let's hope its not going to take a further 4 weeks for this part..! Not happy..

Its why I hate people messing with my car. I might have a plain old mirror with that fitting which I can post to you if you like.
