    Angry Wiper cracked my windshield.

    This happened an hour ago after I washed my car.. I asked my younger brother to put the wiper down. He held it on the blade and somehow it took off from the arm and the arm just smashed the windshield hard. I just dont understand why the blade was easily removed! I know I cant blame my brother for this incident but I am just mad.

    I have never had any cracked windshield and my car is still fresh 6 months old! Do you think this can be repaired? Or do I have to change the whole windshield?

    It's just irritating that this happened because of a simple job; putting a wiper down. sigh.

    that looks like it will require a complete replacement. They can make that as good as new, as long as you go to the MB dealer for replacement and receive a MB windshield, not one from China.

    Damn, I'm sorry this happened. I wouldn't like to be in your brother shoes , he must feel horrible.
    I would have never expected the windshield to crack like that... Would you have to pay out of pocket for that?
    Anybody know how much it would cost?

    Too many instances of cracked windshields reported. Sometimes without any obvious impact from flying objects.
    I wonder if Mercedes Benz is adhering to US Federal Motor Vehicle Safety Standards and Regulations for these CLA windshields?

    I notice the glass is very susceptible to scratching much easier then on other cars. I was wiping the fog away the other day with a micro towel and it left some small scratches on the window. Mind you I was using a brand new microfiber

    Usually this is covered on your comprehensive part of you insurance for minimal cost to you. Check with your agent.

    Correct. That's why I have $100 deductible for Comprehensive, doesn't change your premium much at all. Definitely go to MB to get it replaced, instead of Safelite.

    Just had one priced at MB dealer. Either $500 or $800 for the glass, depending on whether you have lane recognition option.

    That price is pretty consistent with other makes/models.
