I would get it repaired to prevent the crack growing... Sorry no experience with replacing but it may be tedious due to the electronics and such.

Re: cracked windshield 2014 srt

I have had mine replaced in my 2011 Overland.
Had the choice of OEM or aftermarket. I went with OEM.
The only issue was the rain sensors were a bit haywire for a few days, but it went away. The wipers would do a single wipe on startup for 2 days after the screen was replaced.
I would suggest you go with the OEM screen.

Yup the repair should be sufficient it sounds like. Safelite is legit.

Re: cracked windshield 2014 srt

Did you have to have the dealer reflash the computer? I thought I read in the manual somewhere that for the rain sensing wipers to work correctly the computer needed to be reflash. You might want to check.

I did not need a reflash, but the wipers would do a single wipe for the first few days on startup.
They seem to learn after a few days.

Re: cracked windshield 2014 srt

Hi sorry a bit off topic.

Regarding the Rain wiper sensor, Mine is randomly trigger it self when set on Auto. It's not raining and then it wiped the screen 4-5 times by it self. Is it a fault or is it normal? My guess was probably hit a small bug on the windscreen sensor and triggers it?
