Heated windshield replacement??

Tue Jan 05, 2016 9:30 pm

Hi All.

My B-Class pink heated windshield has a huge crack across it from a stone that got me in my first week of ownership. :? :cry:

Has anyone replaced theirs? Any recommendations? Do aftermarket windshield manufacturers even make this windshield? I see that safelite doesn't even have the B-Class listed on their website.

Thanks in advance!

Very sorry to hear about that. Anyone have any ideas? There may be replacement windshields as a gas version is sold in Canada. Then you would be saving on labor at the dealer. If I go to my mechanic, I save $70 per hour vs. dealer. Please don't drive with a broken windshield.

I would go to the dealer on this one. This is too specialized due to limited number of B class here. I believe this windshield (heated) is only in the b-class electric so you are going to have a hard time with aftermarket or canada.

On the plus side your comprehensive insurance should minimize the out of pocket.

I realize I'm digging this thread up from long past, but I'm about to acquire a B class electric with the heated windshield and it has a pretty darn big rock chip near the middle of the windshield. It hasn't spread yet, and I'm not sure if anyone has attempted filling it.

How much does this windshield cost from Mercedes?

I have heard that it is over $900. I would insist that the seller deduct the money or repair it.

It is truly a custom part. Most B EV parts come from Germany but Mercedes does give loaners.

Seattle Mercedes quoted ~$1,450 retail for the windshield, and that's before 9% tax and an hour or so of labor. I got the price of the car substantially reduced before buying it.

I'm pretty sure that filling the chip has not been attempted yet, so I'm going to see how it looks after that is attempted. This chip is the size of a quarter. It's probably about as big as a rock chip can get before the initial impact also causes a long crack to form. Probably scared the poop out of the driver when it happened.

I received a quote for $1100.00 two months ago, Southern California.

The heated windshield on my B is the softest, most prone to damage of any I have ever had on any car I have ever owned. Be careful! These are $1,500 to fix at the dealer. There really isn't an alternative.

Ours got a stone chip right behind the rear view mirror which spread to a crack all the way down to the base.

In CT our insurance covers glass at 100%, All State sent me to SafeLite glass repair. The car of course wasn’t in their parts book or computer. He ordered the glass from dealer using the VIN number. Took a good 2 weeks to arrive but they changed it in the driveway at our house and I never opened my wallet.

I won’t know until winter if the heated part actually works I guess.

After hitting by a stone every windshield gets a crack on it and if you don't want to spend much on it then repair it as soon as possible so that it will not end up doing windshield replacement.
