Today was a very busy day in Long Beach, California. Apparently someone went on a shooting spree today shooting out windows in Long Beach. We were told by a Long Beach resident that 40 or more cars had windows shot out. We will be available all night tonight to take calls to schedule appointments for this incident.
Axe versus 2006 Hummer Back glass window (AX Won)
This particular vehicle below sustained some back glass damage when an Axe came flying thru the back glass. We were able to provide a mobile back glass replacement on this 2006 Hummer H3 in Lumberton, TX 77657.
We recently replaced a back glass powered slider for a customer in Houston, Texas. We recommend you use a OE part like Mopar when doing this type of replacement. The OE part fits the best and this job usually takes 4 hours to complete. Here's some pictures of what the process looks like. When you do the replacement you have to remove the back seat and regulator.

Heated Windshield and Heated Wiper Park Area
Some vehicles come equipped with heated windshields and heated wiper park areas. What is a heated wiper park area or heated windshield? A heated windshield and heated wiper park area are a little different and a little similar.
Heated Windshield a heated windshield is a windshield that has heating elements integrated into the glass that helps the windshield heat up faster then the rest of the car allowing the windshield to quickly thaw out if it is frozen. The heated wiper park area feature heats the bottom of the windshield where the windshield wipers rest.
If you have a heated windshield you may not even know it. Some vehicles have a button on the dashboard that looks like a windshield and when you push that button it activates the heating process and your windshield will quickly warm up allowing you to see quicker if the windshield is completely frozen.
Heated Wiper Park Area: Some vehicles have windshields that have this feature and basically the heated wiper park area is an area on the bottom area of the windshield where the windshield wipers rest where there can be brown, black or even red lines integrated into the windshield. This allows the driver to push a button and warm up the area of the windshield where the wipers rest. This is a great feature if you live in a cold climate and for winters.
Many car manufacturers have adopted this feature such as Mercedes, BMW and Toyota. If you aren’t sure if you have this feature we can tell you if you provide us with the last 8 letters and numbers of your vin (vehicle identification number) with the VIN we will contact the dealership and they will tell us what features your vehicle has.
