Some winshield shops can repair a small bullseye or crack for a nominal fee. Also Pepboys sells a DIY kit that is for Quarter size or smaller damage. Both options only prevent the damage from becoming worse. I have used the DIY kit twice and have not had an issue with either vehicle that it was installed in. Again it will only prevent the damage from getting worse. The only way to fix it correctly is to replace the winshield.

i had a small crack on my windshield fixed about a week ago. Insurance covered it for free...otherwise it would've cost 50 bucks. i think the windshield guy just filled the crack with some sort of substance, wasnt there when he did it... crack is barely noticeable now...pretty good job.

my windshield is so old and worn. I want a new one. You should see if you insurance will cover the replacemnt w/o you having to pay the detuctible. Some places are like that.
