What do you do when your windshield is cracked and you don’t have glass coverage in your insurance policy? You go to the junkyard to pick up a replacement, but you’re still going to need the right tool to remove the two windshields, and SG Tool Aid’s windshield removal tool may be able to help.

This particular removal tool provides a handle you can pull for extra leverage when cutting the sealant around the windshield. The tool comes with two tempered steel blades and you can pick it up for somewhere between $10 and $15.

    If you ever tried it without the tool, you had less fun than you wanted. Been there, done that and even cracked the “new” windshield trying to get it from the junk car.
    Certainly, even if you use this only one time, it is worth that many dollar bills.

    Yep, I have a junk RX-7 chassis behind the barn with a rare original windshield I want to pull. The 25 year-old Japanese winshields are incredibly tough compared to the new replacements. The new ones are just fragile junk. I’ll be buying one of these tools to do it.

    Does this tool really work reliably and quickly on most windshields?

    If so who would need all the other higher-priced variants:

    On a bit of a related topic – A few years back Fein was promoting a sealant cutting tool ( a bit like their multi-master on steroids) for quick removal of glazing. They also said it had boating and automotive applications. I never saw one in use – but maybe some of you toolmongers have ??

    There are easier ways to get a windshield out. Find a buddy, 2 pairs of visegrips, a length of cable, and a #2 phillips screwdriver. Insert the screw driver into and through the urethane sealant. Run the cable through the hole and attach a pair of visegrips to each end. With one person inside and one outside, saw the cable around the windshield.

    Could have used this tool a few years back when I pulled a replacement window from a FIAT. The removal job took half a day cutting carefully with a hooked carpet knife on the inside and then again around the outside, over and over until it was free. It felt like gambling; the hardest thing was resisting my own impatience and ongoing desire to attempt to pry it out prematurely.

    Fred, yes, but they make one for the drill with a handle that si just as good infact HF has one. The Fein one is a little dangersous around glass, because it can be hard to cotnrol. Using the drill one or the fein to remove caulking or molding in automotive and boating is very nive. I had a guy put in a new deck on the fly bridge of the my old boad and he used the fein to remove old cauling and adhesive.

    As for old windshilds and this tool, yes they are very usefula dn fat, can take less than 2-3 minutes to pop out a broken glass, and maybe 10-20 for a good one you need to keep. Just slow as you go….
