    there's one in my screen, a little bullet hole type one. i got autoglass to look at it, but similar thing, the guy said it had been done once. he said he could put a bit more resin in the hole as it wears away [?], just to make it look better and not wear the wiper blade. said replacement was the complete answer. i let him fill the hole a little and i just ignore it now, it hasn't got worse or anything.

    to be honest the guy was probably covering his own back by not filling it again cause in a few weeks if all goes wrong who you going to call and complain to

    i wouldnt have filled it either if i thought it wasnt going to last and better to pay the £75 now than wait till it goes completely on the motorway doing 70mph and god knows what would happen
