I believe you want to use a butyl adhesive on windshields - not silicone!

If you have full glass coverage, call the insurance co. I had a small opening in my window. Call insurance co, theyended up re-set both windows after the glass company came and checked them out. Both windows had been replaced in the last two years due to (driver side ..1 huricane) (passenger side1 road hazard that hit the window) mishaps.

Sorry windydaboo! Let me give some input. Use masking or painters tape and mask off both sides of the area you want to repair. Use the filler to fill the space in question and smooth with puddy knife or similar tool. Remove tape when area is covered,let dry and be happy
