Don't be stupid like Uncle Bjørn! Don't use full window defroster or your windscreen will crack. An crack is not good for you!

It's from stone, not from heating. There's a hole of stone chip, at some point when you driving stone picked up on your windscreen, and heating caused a glass to break at that point. It happened to my car also and it happened on summer, not preheating. I got stone chip like that in the middle of the windscreen and when it was really hot, it was 50c in the car one day i got inside and saw that my windscreen cracked at point from bottom to direction through stone chip, next day cracking continued all the way to top of windscreen.
The heater is not the problem. When you have a star in your windscreen and its cool temperature outside and you set the heater on then your windscreen is going broken. If the windscreen have not stars then you can allways set your heater in highest stand.
Just my own opinion. Remember when you fill a glass with hot water, empty it and immediately put a cold water in it, it breaks. That’s because glass is not a good conductor of heat and my guess is that the windscreen had a lot of tension going on - rapid heat and cold from both sides. Or I might be wrong :)
i had this happen two times in subaru impreza hatchback 2008MY. first time, and then after replacing windshield - second time. luckily i had insurance and the windshield was replaced for free both times
Bjorn Nyland if the chip had been repaired before shocking the windscreen you would have been fine. In Norway does insurance give you free chip repair ! ? It's best for all, you and the insurance
How are the Hakk8 studs holding up when driving them on dry roads ?
Btw Bjorn Nyland, windscreen replacement in the USA IS so reasonable we usually do not use insurance to replace one, w ejust buy them if they are cracked like yours being repair, something like 200 US DOLLARS
On a side note, if you are serious about staying in the USA for all or part of the winter, for warm weather, myself and our friends have an offer to make that possible if you and Ann -Marie are up to it! Let me know ?
And when the windscreen will be replaced, if they use metal knife tool to cut the adheseve betwin glass and metal frame, it's going to scratch that metal frame inside and outside, and in time the steel will rust, in years can rust through and rain inside around the windshield area. Because it's not their car, they have to be quick and do a large no. of "clients". and that rust , in case of an accident weakens in some degree the structural integrity behaiviour in case of an accident ! (beside the aestetics looks)
Martin in Gothenburg, Sweden. Swedish caravan centres sell motor vehicle fuses with telltale LED's that light through leakage across them when the fuse blows. Saves hunting for the broken fuse... It's a one time expense to replace all the fuses on your vehicle and buy a few in reserve. Only the smallest fuse, 2.5A, is not available with LED telltale...
I get how scientifically it was expected however I feel for the cost of that car it shouldn’t do that my 2016 Ford Focus and 2009 Honda Element never have Done something like this during winter morning defrosting.
Okay, Im telling you what happend. He has a crack from any little stone on the highway before heating the windscreen, so difference in temperatures rise the crack. Thats it. If you have a clear front screen, heat it, why not.
Soon as I got my Model X I put ClearPlex on it for peace of mind. Now I can drive without worry of rocks hitting my windscreen. You should check to see if it is sold were you live. When you get your windscreen replace put it on.
