    Default Windscreen chips...

    How big do they need to be to repair, got a good few pin head sized chips scattered around... can they be repaired or will they be too small?

    2mm is the max i reckon but noticable in certain light

    Has to be smaller than a 10p piece...any bigger and it's a new screen.

    Yours will all be repairable...assuming the windscreen repairer will sanction that many repairs on one piece of glass.

    i've just had a couple of chips repaired on my windscreen and i was lucky with one of them, it was 10cm away from the edge. be aware that some firms/companies will not repair chips if they are within 6cm from the edge. also, check that you can get it repaired through your car insurance, some do it for free! hth

    To be fair, there about 5 just below my view and couple in the middle on the passenger side... only noticed them as the light catches them but i want the screen sorting or replacing before i get anything tinted...

    Just thought there might be a min size, because some are like pin ****** to be fair

    I was wondering that myself, mine too has several tiny chips, the largest is barely 1mm, but I have 3 tiny one's grouped close together with about 2mm between them. Certainly no where near bad enough to warrant screen replacement. Luckily most are in the centre and passenger side.
    Car got shotblasted by 4 grit waggons on motorway couple of months ago, which is when I got most of them.
