How to Install Windshield Sealant in a Car


Installing the sealant is one of the most important parts of replacing a windshield. Doing this repair yourself can save you a fair amount of time and money. If you have a crack in your windshield, you need to replace it for safety reasons as well as to avoid a fix-it ticket from the highway patrol. Commercial-grade silicone sealant is recommended because it has a low amount of elasticity.

Things You’ll Need

Flat head screwdriver, Razor blade, Shop rags, Scissors, Commercial-grade silicone sealant, Rubbing alcohol, Tarp


  • Remove the windshield and molding with a screwdriver.
