How much does a leak repair cost in Kerrville TX or Fredericksburg TX?

How do I fix a water leak in my windshield?
Locating the source of the leak is the first hurdle. Often you need to lower or drop the headliner in order to find exactly where water is entering your vehicle. Don’t try to fix the problem without understanding it first. Once you find the leak, you need to use an appropriate adhesive to fix it. We fix vehicle leaks from the inside of the vehicle. If you intend to fix it from the outside you need an exterior rated adhesive. We use the same glue to fix leaks as manufacturers originally used to install windshields. This type of urethane is typically available from an Auto Part Store or from us. We happily sell the glue you need at discounted prices. Apply a small amount of glue to the leaking section on the windshield. Be careful to keep it off of fabrics and the headliner…often it won’t come off. Wait 24 hours and retest the windshield for leaks before putting the interior back together.
