AGRSS Council Issues Alert Regarding Recent Recalls
Safelite Auto Glass/Belron US issued the original recall for certain tempered part numbers from DOT No. 430 in December, and earlier this month Process Polymers Development (PPD) in Clinton Township, Mich., issued a recall for a part from both manufacturers.
Both recalls were issued voluntarily via the National High Traffic and Safety Administration (NHTSA). In the AGRSS Alert, the Council warns registered companies that they “should make every effort to recall any glass [involved in the recall] that they have installed.”
The Council goes on to quote the Standard, which says, “All glass parts must be traceable to the installation by a DOT and part number.”
“Your documentation of these DOT numbers and part numbers on your work orders should allow you to identify the Lexus RX 300 for the 1999 to 2003 model years, which may have had the subject glass installed,” the alert continues.

“We are excited to have this video available as another resource for auto glass technicians and consumers alike,” says Cindy Ketcherside, AGRSS Council chairperson.
Nik Frye, Glass America’s vice president of sales, adds, “Glass America was happy to sponsor and produce this video for the AGRSS websites. We want to continue to promote the importance of safe windshield installation as well as the work AGRSS has been doing for the industry.”
