Section 1
Why Windshield Makes Noise After Certain Speed

The main culprit that causes wind noise after a windshield install is that there is a gap (or void) in the bonding compound (aka Urethane) between the windshield and the vehicle frame that is causing air to get in. Noise most likely increases with increase of speed.

This bonding compound must be applied continuously and consistently without creating any voids.
Read our blog article about windshield noise, what causes it, what to look for and how to prevent it.

Why is my Windshield Blurry

If it is not fog or condensation on the windshield, then it is either an oily film that is causing the blur or it is a pitted windshield.

If you suspect it is an oily film, try giving your windshield a wash with soap and water. Alo, double check your windshield wipers, they could be dirty or old.

If your windshield is pitted, then the only recourse is to replace it with a brand new windshield. There is no cure or repair for a pitted windshield.
