    Default Windscreen small tone chip

    I was driving along M53 close to Vx Ellesmere Port today ... lorry flicked a stone up at windscreen

    Result = small stone chip (nothing too major) on closer inspection I found another one as well

    I don't think the chips need repairing but they are there .... and I know they are there !

    Has anyone else suffered from lorries and other vehicles flicking stones and debris on themotorways?

    All the time Denzo,

    Worst one was a brick that fell off the back of a skip truck... Fair **** myself as I watched it come towards me.. Hit the top of the screen and the roof line... Didn't even get the firm's number.. too busy sliding to a halt!!!

    It depends what sort of chip it is and where on the scrren it is, If it's a sugar grain type chip then it's an easy repair, if it has got legs on it(size depending) then it may not cover up totaly

    Has anyone else suffered from lorries and other vehicles flicking stones and debris on themotorways?
    About 3 weeks ago a chunk of mud the size of a football came out the back of a lorry,hit my bonnet,broke into a few pieces which then rolled up over my windscreen!! Amazingly no dents just scratches!
    Maybe I was to blame as I was a bit too close behind him

    sugar grain ... it looks like a sugar grain / scratch.... I don't think I will go to get this repaired as it looks okay.

    I once had a stone chip on a Volvo V50, it was an almighty noise and a chip from the windscreen which 'clearly' needed to be repaired ...

    Hope it is okay

    Anyone know the rough cost of repair of these sugar grain scratch / stone chips?
