Understanding Windshield Recalibration
Why do you need this service?
While we love all the new cars, trucks, and SUVs coming off the assembly line, it seems like there is always a catch. The vehicles are capable of so many things. However, when something breaks, things can go downhill. This is the case with a broken windshield. While it might not seem like a big deal to have it repaired and go on with your daily life, its what you don't know that can't impact you. A broken windshield in newer model vehicles is tangled with your onboard, smart features. If your windshield isn't calibrated correctly, it can have an impact on how your vehicle performs and functions.
At Super Duty of Scottsdale, AZ, we can recalibrate your windshield according to factory standards and recommendations. We have trained to ensure our customers are completely covered when it comes to your safety. You can learn more below about the recalibration process, but please know if you have any questions along the way, we are here to answer those questions.
Windshield Recalibration in Scottsdale, AZ
What is a Windshield Recalibration
There are various ways to recalibrate a windshield - learn more here.
Depending on your vehicle make and model, we can perform a dynamic recalibration for you. The whole process takes about an hour, so hopefully, that helps you plan for your appointment with us. In this process, we will take your car to a well-marked roadway where we can use the painted lines to perform our service. We check the vehicle and put it through all the proper checks to ensure all the systems are working as they should be. This particular recalibration helps your vehicle to detect things like weaving, blind-spot detection, and front end collision alerts.
Whether you have a car, truck, or SUV, we can also help you with a static Recalibration. This process is designed to put your vehicle through the paces so it can detect the depth of field. It also supports the perspective of objects while on the road. A static recalibration involves a target mounted at the front of the vehicle. We adjust the windshield to ensure the camera and sensors are reading everything correctly. The entire appointment takes about an hour, depending on your vehicle make or model.
The Recalibration Appointment
When you contact us for a recalibration appointment, it might be because we are already scheduling your windshield replacement. Due note, however, we can recalibrate your windshield regardless if we have replaced it. We will gather the details about your vehicle, including the make, model, and year. This will help us determine if you need a dynamic or static recalibration. Most vehicles need one or the other, and some require both. Some insurance companies cover recalibration services along-side your replacement. This makes sense, given it's a safety feature that can cause more problems with your car, truck, or SUV. Once we know what kind of service you'll need, we will get you scheduled to perform the service. Your length of service is based on which recalibration you'll need.
Windshield Replacement + Recalibration
Why you need to consider both services
These services complement one another and are often required to be done by auto insurers or your auto warranty.
We are happy to help you with a windshield replacement if you are looking at a cracked or shattered windshield. It's crucial to have this replaced if damaged, not only so you can see out of it, but so your onboard systems function properly. We offer mobile services to make this replacement as easy as possible on you, your family life, and your work responsibilities. We arrive with everything we need, including your new windshield. We will go through all of the aftercare instructions with you before handing you back your car keys.
If your windshield requires a recalibration test, we will know before we even arrive onsite to replace your windshield. This way, when you are planning your day, you can schedule that to fit your needs. The recalibration tests each take about an hour. Most vehicles need just one but sometimes require both tests. Again, you will know which one you need before we start our work. A recalibration test ensures your onboard smart features work and are assisting you while driving. Some of these features include lane assist, blind-spot detection, collisions alerts, speed control, auto braking, and more.
