Freightliner Windshield Replacement & Truck Glass
It takes an experienced technician to replace windshields on a Freightliner. There are a few factors involved that make the replacement different than a regular passenger vehicle. The windshields are much larger in size. Some windshield can reach 6 ft across, requiring more than one technician to install! To keep the strength because of the size the windshields are thicker than normal cars. To help with this, many model have a “split” windshield. Technically two separate windshields, a drivers side windshield and a passenger side windshield. This helps in many ways. It keeps the weight and size down, making it possible for one installer to handle. Also, if there is damage to one side it does not effect the other. Freightliner as adopted some features from passenger vehicles into their windshields.
Lane Departure Warning- Using a camera mounted to the windshield, If the truck crosses a lane without the turn signal on, the radio will mute and an audible warning will sound. The audible warning will come from the truck speaker on the side of the road where the line was crossed. For example, if the left lane is crossed the left speaker broadcasts the audible warning. This option is only active at speeds above 37 mph. There is a switch that can temporarily disable this option in areas where lanes are crossed frequently.
