Default New Windshield Issues

My windshield cracked so I got a new one installed today (Pilkington). When I got home and cleaned it up I noticed two things. There is a scratch about 2" long on the passenger side upper, and the black goo they use to seal it oozed out inside near the A pillar trim and is visible if you look up there.

Would you have them redo it or is it worth the hassle?

I was leaning towards that. They have a satisfaction guaranteed thing. tbh I am more concerned about the black goo than the scratch but hopefully theyll both be taken care of.

How bad is the scratch? is it possible to scrape off the excess sealant?

the scratch is not that bad, i was going to leave it but it really shouldnt have any scratches right? the sealant is pretty stuck on there and its VERY tough. I might be able to scrape it off with a razor blade but it might mess up the black dots. I'll see what they say. I was just curious what others' experiences have been with replacement glass.

Here is the scratch. It was hard to capture but the length is about 2" plus a less deep 6 more inches beyond it. Looks like something dragged across it.


I'm more upset about this black goo. I hope it doesn't fk up the a pillar covering when they replace it tomorrow.


Seems like no one these days can do a job 100% right anymore.
