Difference Between a Windshield Ding and Crack
At some point in your driving life you may run into dealing with damage to your car's windshield. This usually comes in the form of a ding or a crack, and it's important to know the difference amongst the two and how to deal with each one.
A ding is essentially a small dent in the glass. A ding doesn't go all the way through and can get repaired easily by putting a small amount of resin in the ding that will bond to the glass and strengthen it.
A crack usually goes all the way through the glass and often isn't repairable, in which case you must have your windshield replaced. It also is a much bigger safety hazard because it can weaken your windshield and cause it to shatter more easily.
