Some automakers state that if the windshield is replaced, the camera must be calibrated at one of their dealerships. Is this true?
No. In 2012, the Dutch advertising code authority instructed a manufacturer (Volvo) to withdraw this assertion and acknowledge that just like dealers, the technicians at Belron (including those at Lebeau®) could safely replace windshields equipped with a camera.

Can I contact Lebeau Vitres d’autos® if my advanced driver-assistance systems aren’t working properly?
We recalibrate these systems only after replacing a windshield. Should your system malfunction, contact your dealer.
What are advanced driver-assistance systems (ADAS)?
In recent years, technological progress in the automotive industry has greatly improved the enjoyment, safety and comfort of driving, with advanced driver-assistance systems (ADAS) propelling the production of smart vehicles. These systems are already incorporated into many vehicle makes and models and will become even more common in the immediate future.
Advanced driver assistance-systems include lane keeping, danger detection, adaptive cruise control, emergency braking and safety warnings (sounds or vibrations).
