How Do You Calibrate My New Windshield?

Windshield replacement has gotten more technical as car technology has advanced. Gone are the days of simply replacing a piece of glass. As vehicles become more and more high-tech, maintenance becomes more intricate. Of course, as technology advances, so does the expertise of technicians and mechanics. There is no need to stress. That said, do you know what it means to calibrate your new windshield?

What is Windshield Calibration?

The calibration process is important as it ensures your windshield is working properly. The process adjusts and tests all of the cameras and sensors on the windshield. If not working properly, this can lead to an accident because the Advance Driver Assistance System (ADAS) is not functioning at full capacity.

When Do You Need a Windshield Calibration?

A windshield calibration can take place during any scheduled windshield replacement or repair. However, a sensor can be disturbed in instances as minor as a small collision or fender bender. In these cases, the windshield may remain unscathed, which is not necessarily a cry for calibration. We are here to tell you it is. After any accident – no matter how small, it is vital to schedule a consultation to ensure the windshield and ADAS are functioning properly. A windshield camera calibration can take anywhere from 30 to 45 minutes and is the best way to ensure you are as safe as you can be behind the wheel.
