If your car is equipped with ADAS and you’ve had the windscreen replaced, you need to get the ADAS system calibrated.
ADAS systems use a camera located in the middle of the windscreen to detect the surroundings and road condition and send the information to the ADAS system, so that it can automatically employ safety measures.
When the windscreen has been replaced, or any panel repair is done (no matter how minor), you have to get the ADAS recalibrated to make sure that the system continues to operate correctly.
This is because the windscreen has to be positioned perfectly in relation to the camera’s sensors in order for the ADAS system to operate correctly, along with any other radar or lidar sensors it may use.
If the windscreen is replaced without the ADAS being recalibrated, it can cause serious issues.
The ADAS system can misread what is going on and start applying safety measures such as braking or steering when there is no hazard. This can be extremely dangerous and potentially life threatening.
Here is an example of what can happen if the ADAS camera is even 1 degree off:
As you can see, the braking distance is greatly effected. This is because the ADAS system would not be able to correctly position where the car is in relation to the surroundings, which could cause a drastic drop in performance. This is especially the case at motorway speeds.

"We have a Mighty Mover that wasn't working properly and we needed the electrics to be looked at. We contacted Kiro and he responded very promptly - even though he had never heard of a Mighty Mover before 🙂 I dropped it in on Wednesday afternoon and asked if there was any way it could be fixed by Friday afternoon, as we needed it for our business for the weekend. Although his team were very busy, he agreed to do his best. His best was great, because he was able to get it fixed for us by Friday lunchtime. A great result, which made us very happy. Super appreciated."
"Kiro is absolutely a rockstar, a genuine problem solver, very knowledgeable and service is 10/10"
"Had my air conditioning checked and regarded while I waited. Didn’t need to book, I just called and they said to come by in an hour! Great price too"
"Very good service. My car aircon had stopped working and after their check, it was just faulty wiring and nothing else. My AC is now working fine again, highly recommended."
