When you're buying glass for your Acura, there are a few things to keep in mind.
- Model year: The shape and size of the windows will vary by model year and trim level.
- Location: It's important to identify exactly what area of the vehicle the glass is located to get the right size.
- Features: Determine the features you need the glass to have, such as a defroster built into it or a special level of tint.
Tempered glass is approximately five times stronger than regular glass because it has been treated with heat or chemicals. This ensures that the glass is less likely to break during an accident or when something hits it. Further, if the glass does break, it will crumble into small pieces that aren't sharp. It's considered safer than regular glass that would break into sharp, jagged pieces, and is used for the side and rear windows.What are the benefits of tint?
Tint minimizes the number of UV rays that enter the car. This offers a variety of benefits based on the percentage that is being allowed inside:
- Protects you and the passengers
- Reduces the heat
- Protects the interior from fading
- Adds a level of security because people can't see inside
Installing auto glass involves at least two people to support the weight of the glass. All existing glass in the location has to be cleared off, as well as any seals that may be in place. If the glass is for a door window, the door panel has to be taken off as well so that the glass can be placed on the track. If the glass is for another location, it has to be put into position carefully. Then, a seal is added to the perimeter to ensure it stays in place.What comes with auto glass?
Most auto glass will come with a plastic coating that is peeled off prior to installation. It is what keeps the glass free of scratches until it's ready to go into the RSX. Depending on where the glass will be installed, it may also include the seals, such as if it's going on the windshield or back window.
