At Boulevard Auto Glass, we recommend you wait 24 hours before washing your vehicle, as the high pressure of automatic car washes can damage the seal and outer molding before the adhesive has a chance to cure sufficiently. Cold temperatures may increase the time required for the adhesive to cure.
Advanced Driver-Assistance Systems (ADAS) such as rain sensors, lane assist, parking assist, collision avoidance, adaptive cruise control, pedestrian crash avoidance mitigation, etc. are intended to increase car and road safety. At Boulevard Auto Glass, we always recommend that vehicles equipped with ADAS features undergo calibration, as replacing your windshield can throw off the sensors thus compromising your safety. Boulevard Auto Glass can calibrate your ADAS systems.
Most new vehicles have some Advanced Driver-Assistance Systems (ADAS). You will require calibration when your windshield is replaced if your car has one or more of the following:
- Lane departure warning/lane change assistance
- Collision avoidance system/forward collision warning
- Adaptive cruise control
- Headlight control/night vision
- Autopilot/self-driving capabilities
- Blind spot monitoring
- Park assist/parking sensor
- Rain sensors
- Driver drowsiness protection
- Emergency driver assistance
- Turning assist
Boulevard Auto Glass can calibrate your ADAS systems.
Some auto insurance policies include glass insurance that will cover windshield replacement. At Boulevard Auto Glass we are happy to contact your insurance company and deal with the paperwork on your behalf and it may be possible to waive a portion of your insurance deductible.
