Re: Charge port glass lid shattered….

thanks for those updates, smucker. OK, yes, the 'push-down' force application point providing the stress-raiser for crack initiation. The rate at which tempered glass 'fails' depends somewhat on the internal stresses within the glass at manufacture: Is th port lid a lamination of two layers of tempe...
