3 Typical Problems With Rear Windshields 

The rear windshield is located at the back of your vehicle. Its purpose is to help hold the frame of the car together. It provides a seal for the interior, which protects you and your passengers. Glass in the rear windshield is subject to common issues, such as leaks, that may require that it be repaired or replaced. Rear windshield replacement often takes longer than front windshield repair. You should always have the work done by a professional.

While it is possible to experience a rear windshield crack, the glass will usually break when it gets hit with rocks or other road debris. An accident will often shatter the back window, which will then disintegrate into tiny pieces like sand. This protects occupants from injury.


Although it is rare, rear windshields can develop leaks. This can occur due to an antenna, rust or a glass defect. In some cases, there may be a problem with the seal allowing moisture to come inside the vehicle. If you can hear air in the back of the car while driving, there is likely to be a water leak, and you should take the car in for rear windshield repair.
