    Default Windshield Replacement - Santiago - $3,400 Pesos

    Just had my windshield replaced this morning on my 1993 Toyota.

    Cost: $3,000 pesos plus $400 pesos for a new rubber seal.
    Old rubber seal was 26 years old and kinda dried out.

    Amazing good price... paid close to $300 in U.S. to have one done.
    Only $68 U.S. here and took just under an hour.

    They even managed to get the marbete sticker off the old and placed on the new windshield.

    I suspect these are the same ones who replaced the gigantic windshield of out E350 15-passenger heavy duty van for $RD9000 including new seal...and moving the marbete to boot.

    And did an excellent job.

    It's hard to believe you can even buy a windshield for $68 - much less to have it replaced including a seal. I wonder if they're some cheap Chinese brand that will shatter in an accident?

    Image from windshield (I added white background for clarity)



    The AS number stands for American Standard, and is “AS” (or “American Standard”) followed by a number indicating the position in which the glass may be used, based on its optical quality.

    AS1 is the clearest glass (at least 70% light transmission), is laminated, and can be used anywhere in a motor vehicle (typically just the windshield)
