How big is the crack?

Customer: replied 5 months ago.
No bigger than 5 pence piece

Unfortunately, I do not offer a telephone service, the money for this you will get back the next days.

Ok, 5 pence is so the limit where a repair is possible.

If the crack is not larger, not in the driver's field of vision, and at least 4 inches from the edge of the windshield is painful, a repair can be made.

But you should prevent dirt from getting into the crack. Carefully stick a small piece of foil or adhesive tape on it.

can this crack be fixed how do I go about getting it fixed

A garage or auto glass company can repair the crack if it meets the criteria I mentioned.

You can't do it yourself. The car glass has a special device that first sucks negative pressure into the crack and then fills it with a resin.
