WINDSHIELD GLASS INSTALLATION

CAUTION / NOTICE / HINT

Note


  • When replacing the windshield glass of a vehicle equipped with a forward recognition camera, make sure to use a Lexus genuine part. If a non-Lexus genuine part is used, the forward recognition camera may not be able to be installed due to a missing bracket. Also, the dynamic radar cruise control system, forward recognition camera system, lane departure alert system (w/ Steering Control), pre-collision system or adaptive high beam system may not operate properly due to a difference in the transmissivity or black ceramic border.

  • Make sure to use Lexus Genuine Windshield Glass Adhesive (High Modulus Type) or an equivalent high modulus adhesive.

Tech Tips


  • Use the same procedure for RHD and LHD vehicles.

  • The procedure listed below is for LHD vehicles.

  • Use the same procedure for the RH and LH sides.

  • The procedure listed below is for the LH side.

  • A bolt without a torque specification is shown in the standard bolt chart.
