Rock came up off the highway and hit my windshield hard (made a tiny crack). Anyway, the crack grew and grew until it spanned from one side to the damn other. Glass places? $300-350, Junkyard? $180 (installed).
My smartcord runs up, across the headliner, and down 6" from the top-center of the windwhield (along the rearview mirror post).
They must have cut the damn thing right through, and they tucked the remaining cord up inside my headliner. On my way home i was panicking, like feeling around "where is it?!? what did they do?!?!".
Long story short, they gave me a pair of windshield wiper blades and offered to reimburse me for the cost of the new smartcord ("send me a copy of the bill").
Unfortunately I'll have to re-run the stupid cord which is alot more trouble than buying it, but at least they made it right and I didnt have to argue or anything.
p.s. I love the new winshield, it looks brand new, I was expecting just a pull from a junker (they recondition them somehow, maybe?). And the tint strip along the top is very dark (the old tint was a light blue, it bearly did anything), so it'll hide my radar detector alot better than the old windshield!!
