Rain X will not allow the glue to get sucked in how it normally would due to capillary action or maybe even from the plunger pushing it in. Rain X will weaken the bond a bunch if you manage to get some in. Get it professionally done if you use or have used rain x, even the washer fluid. Some places have stuff to make it break rain x's bond. The alcohol pad WON'T do it! You can buy stuff for it online but its not cheap.

If you dont touch the sticky part of the double stick tape with your finger as you peel it and wipe the plastic T before you stick it they will hold very well.

My windshield had the rain x issue but still got in to some spots. No idea how those will do yet.

I am very detailed about the work I do. I had a very small bullseye on my windshield right in my field of vision so I decided to give this a try instead of spending 40 to 60 dollars on a repair service. I watched the video for this product and followed the included instructions precisely. It all seemed to be going fine until I came to the part where you put a little positive pressure on the repair by pushing the plunger down to its' middle lock position. It was working for about 2 minutes(you're supposed to leave it that way for 10 minutes) when all of a sudden, it blew out at the bottom where the base is glued to the windshield and sprayed the repair adhesive all over the place. I had no choice but to leave it alone for the required time and continue with the repair and see what happened. After it cured in the sun and I cleaned up the mess, all this junk did was fill the surface of the chip with the acrylic adhesive and did not penetrate into the glass at all. Stone chip still as annoying as ever and I probably cannot at this point, get it repaired professionally because of the acrylic stuck in the chip. The stick-on adhesive that is used to hold the base temporarily, to the windshield, is obviously not strong enough for the task(yes, I did clean properly with the alcohol pad prior to mounting it). This product is pure trash. I will contact Permatex regarding this.

          Works just like you wold expect. It made the chip almost invisible. However a word of caution. Don't press the adhesive disc or mount too hard. You can end up expanding any cracks that may already exist.
          Great product.
          Nice alternative to call your insurance agent.

              I was amazed that this product was so easy to use and made an almost invisible repair to a dime-sized rock chip on the windshield. It says it is a permanent repair---I hope so since I know that small cracks will run if left alone.

                    I had a rock hit my windshield on the interstate and it created a small bullseye. I had never used a product like this before. I was assured by the fine folks at Advance Auto that this would work. It worked amazingly well. There is only the tiniest spot left visible. I feel much better about my window now. Thanks Advance Auto (best customer service ever)!
