Leave it alone tell you cant pass inspection. It seems they all crack. My friend has replaced the front windshield three times. Mine is cracked top to bottom and a foot across, just learn to live with it.
i have brand new inspection and i doubt ill pass again and this crack is BAD it taked up the whoe right side of windshield
Seriously they crack all the time. As far as I'm aware, you will still pass inspection as long as it doesn't obstruct your view of the road, and the window is not going to fall out. Like everyone else said...get over it.
You should be able to have it replaced for under $150 (installed). Don't try to install the replacement yourself - it's a huge pain in the ***. It's the ONLY automotive work I've ever done that I wish I'd had just paid someone to do it - it was the job with the most effort and the least return - and the best part of doing any job yourself is pride in doing it yourself and knowing it's done right. I didn't even find appreciation in that. It sucked, and I've replaced 3-4 windshields before (2x CJs, 2x VW beetles). The glue-in thing is just no fun and it has to be done just right or it will either leak or look like crap.
