Installed Windshield Properly

Car windshields can become damaged owing to a number of factors – dirt, debris, small or big rocks, accidents, or storms. Depending upon the severity of the damage, windshields are repaired or replaced. Up till now, car windshield replacement has been relatively easy but modern-day windshields are giving many service providers a hard time. So, what has changed? Let us find out.

Contemporary Vehicles Embrace ADAS Systems

Times have drastically changed. And one such evidence of it can be seen in contemporary vehicles. Today’s cars come equipped with advanced safety features, known as Advanced Driver Assistance Systems (ADAS) involving sensors, cameras, radars, and computers designed to prevent accidents and ensure the safety of both drivers and pedestrians.

But the thing about these driver-assistance features is that some of them are generally mounted on the front and rear car glass. These include – Autonomous Emergency Brake (AEB), lane-departure warning, adaptive cruise control, and collision avoidance system.

Attractive as they are, there are still some modern-day vehicles that do not come equipped with such advanced systems but going forward from 2020, almost all vehicles will have such safety systems mandatorily installed. 

Challenges Involved in Car Windshield Replacement

These ADAS systems, though are extremely beneficial, pose serious challenges when it comes to car windshield replacement. These sensors need to be carefully removed before replacement and installed back onto the new windshield glass. Moreover, the sensors and their accompanying equipment (computers, cameras, and radars) also need to be recalibrated so that they can perform their function efficiently once again.

Firstly, many car windshield replacement service providers are not qualified and competent to understand and undertake the installation of such sensors and other advanced technologies. Moreover, if there is even a millimeter’s shift in the sensors, it can completely throw off the ADAS system.

And the worst part is that an improperly installed system will not be showing any signs of malfunction until the time of an accident.

So, why take the risk? The wise route to take would be to consult a genuine windshield expert, equipped to meet the demands of modern-day car windshield replacement. 

ADAS Systems: Tips for Car Windshield Replacement

Give below are a few tips to help that can help you with car windshield replacement for your advanced vehicle -

Keep a Record of All Manufacturer Specifications

Each car manufacturer provides very precise specifications as to the replacement of a car’s windshield, depending upon its make and model. This becomes especially crucial in the case of high-end vehicles that come with advanced driver-assistance features.

It is important to keep a note of all the important information regarding your vehicle. This would include the vehicle’s identification number (VIN), the model and year of make of your vehicle, a list of all driver assistance features your vehicle has (especially those embedded on the windshield glass), etc.

Your car windshield replacement service provider will then be able to have a clear picture of what steps need to be taken to ensure proper installation that does not render your vehicle’s advanced technologies useless. 

Don’t Compromise on the Money or Time

Now that modern-day vehicles’ advanced features pose greater complications for car windshield replacement providers, be prepared to be charged more money and time for the whole process to take place efficiently.

In fact, one of the hallmarks of a genuine car windshield replacement service provider is that they will be completely transparent with you in terms of the money and time that is required for them to fix the windshield properly.

Good things do take time and the same rule applies for car windshield replacement. 

Choose a Car Windshield Replacement Service Wisely

Your car’s advanced features call for experts that are thoroughly equipped to work around them. Keep in mind to choose a service provider that houses genuine, OEM-recommended windshield glass for your vehicle. Moreover, the technicians must be equipped with specialised tools needed for windshield replacement and high-quality polyurethane adhesive and must be certified at what they do. Also, ask your service provider whether their car windshield replacement is done in compliance with international safety standards.
