The rear window replacement of your Volvo can unfortunately sometimes be necessary. This is partly because these car windows cannot be repaired, as is sometimes the case with windscreens. In case of damage, the rear window has often fallen apart into thousands of pieces immediately. This makes replacing the rear window of the Volvo inevitable. Fortunately, for many models of this Swedish brand, we have brand new rear windows to order. The costs are considerably lower than what you will have to pay at a brand dealer, because these are after market car windows. We tell you more about the cost of replacing a rear window here. For that we will discuss some important aspects of Volvo history, such as the recent acquisition of an emerging name in the automotive industry. In addition, you can read why Volvo has been very important in the field of automotive glass in the past.
Pehr Gyllenhammar was Volvo's CEO for no less than twelve years and he quickly acknowledged that the company would not manage on its own feet in the long run. Many other car companies began to merge in that period, from the 1970s onwards, and large power blocks were formed. Among other things, Volvo was seeking rapprochement with Saab, but it was not a large-scale collaboration or merger. Volvo did buy the ailing car branch from the Dutch DAF in 1973. The small models of DAF were sold as Volvo cars. Especially the Volvo 340 made in the Netherlands was a great success in England and other countries in Europe.
Volvo is known for the high level of safety of its cars. Moreover, this is not only an aspect of Volvo that they need to get right so that the cars pass the necessary tests, because over the years they have done a lot of developments themselves while they were not yet needed. As early as the 1950s Volvo first designed the two-point belt and later the three-point belt and fitted all models as standard equipment. They were the first to experiment with extending the crumple zone of a car and with placing airbags for passengers and in the sides of the cars.
Moreover, Volvo can be seen as a pioneer in the field of safe car windows. The very first cars manufactured in Europe around 1900 had no windows at all. But especially when the speed of the cars increased, this turned out to be a handy addition. However, Volvo was only the first to install laminated windscreens in the cars in 1944. As a result, the windows of cars with windscreen damage break into large shards less quickly and it was therefore a lot safer for the occupants in case of an accident. This innovation can be seen as the forerunner of the current laminated windscreens, with a layer of PVB film between two layers of glass. Because of the high safety of the cars of this brand, it is certainly necessary to replace the rear window of your Volvo when it is broken. Although it is not forbidden to continue driving, it can cause problems.
