Removing and replacing your car windshield is a multi-step process that can be difficult to get right. For that reason, doing so on your own isn’t advised.

An auto technician who’s removing a damaged windshield and replacing it with a new one will:

Prepare by tightly covering the car’s interior and outer body to protect it from fine pieces of glass that could come off the current windshield.
Start the removal process by peeling off the molding around the perimeter of the windshield.
Use the appropriate tool to cut the windshield from the points where it’s welded to the vehicle.
Remove the old glass by carefully lifting it up and away from the car, relying on another technician’s assistance to gently push it out from the inside.
Go through a series of priming steps to prepare the frame to adhere to the new windshield.
Install a new windshield, then leave to set according to the manufacturer’s specifications.
