Besides the hand prints, this one below also shows a couple of the 'streaks' i mentioned. All the curved streaks sweeping from top left to bottom right is just dirt from the windshield wiper. But the ones going from bottom left to top right are streaks that, as far as i can tell, are between the layers of glass. This is the passenger side; it's much worse on the driver's side...

Finally got my windshield replaced under warranty last week. Took about 5 weeks for the service manager to get approval (don't ask), but at least it all worked out. New one is clear as can be.
That one from the factory was ridiculous what with both streaks sandwiched in the glass and also the handprint.

Re: Hand Prints on Windshield

I dont know if laminated glass is new for other vehicles, but the Wk'2's have it. Roll you window down and check out the groove. A local glass shop told me it was several times stronger than normal tempered glass. They said it was developed to actually give the roof more support from a roll over and it was a lot harder to break.

I was told the laminated glass was to dampen sound.

Side windows laminated is rather new. Windshield's gave been laminated forever.


Down side of side windows laminated is rescue the other is related to frustrating a their where they do other damage trying to enter vehicle.

Re: Hand Prints on Windshield

Are you saying the SRT has laminated side glass?

Re: Hand Prints on Windshield

Front door glass is laminated on all WK2s.

They call it "acoustic side glass".

Re: Hand Prints on Windshield

I just got the windshield replaced this week. So far it looks better. The only thing that pisses me off is that they didn't bother to clean the glass. place. I plan on wash my baby this weekend and we will see if it is better.

I wonder why they just didnt go ahead and put the laminated for the rear doors as well? If its actually just for lower noise and acoustic's why not do the rear doors too. Doesnt make sense

When I got mine back, I had a nice four-finger print on the new windshield. I couldn't wait to get it home to make sure it could be cleaned off. It did.

Also, the interior of the WK2 (carpeting, center console, seats) was covered in little black "plastic-y" shavings - presumably from when they cut/scraped out the old bead of urethane glue. You'd think it would be standard procedure for these glass guys to spend 30 seconds with a portable vacuum or something. Or that when the dealer when and retrieved it from the glass place, they'd have cleaned the interior up a bit for me.

Re: Hand Prints on Windshield

There's also probably also a safety reason. Laminated side windows are controversial because it's difficult for rescue personnel to break them out if they need to extract the occupants quickly. By leaving the rear windows 'regular', rescue personnel can still get into the vehicle.
