What are these type of repairs like? Do they leave a lump or hollow they stuffs up the wipers?

Always wondered about this issue.

No they don't.
If it's a star or bullseye, they just inject clear resin, it there is a crack, they also drill a very fine hole at the end of the crack to stop it spreading.

Hi Con,

I got a do it yourself kit from Repco for bout $30. Its called Ufixit. It worked well and will stop it form cracking further.

For smaller chips and stars it says that it will be almost invisible once repaired but mine was the mother of all stone chips being approx 2" wide. It still come up ok though.

Cheers Wilko

Many Thanks!. I went past Repco this afternoon, so I know where the shop is located. The stone chip is very small - so hope I can get it repaired.

Got the Ufixit this morning and had a go. It certainly woked very well, except I used too much glue and now have to scrap the excess off when it dries-apart from that it was the first time so all was good. Many thanks for the advices.

Check your insurance....most of them will give you one replacement or repair per year for free, then don't have to muck around trying to fix it (or spend the money).
