Common Questions

It is recommended by most vehicle manufacturers that after replacing your windscreen the cameras should be recalibrated to ensure the system is operating with the precision that the safety system requires. At O'Brien®, we stay up to date with advances in technology – that’s why we’ve introduced a tool specifically designed to check that the camera that looks through your windscreen is calibrated and working properly before you leave. We call this technology Cal-Tech® Recalibration.

  • First, we prepare the new glass and ensure your vehicle’s interior is protected
  • Next, we cut the windscreen seal and safely remove the glass from your vehicle using exclusive Ezi-Wire technology.
  • We apply a strong bonding glue to the new windscreen.
  • We carefully fit your new windscreen using our expert 1-Tek® tool.
  • Next, we use a powerful vacuum to clean any broken glass from your vehicle, ensuring it’s safe inside and out.
  • In around 90 minutes (for a standard windscreen replacement) O'Brien® can get you back on the road, fast and safe!
  • If your vehicle has in-built ADAS technology it usually requires a Cal-Tech® Recalibration which is performed in branch and requires additional time to complete the process.

  • Our technician inspects the damage to establish if a successful O'Brien® repair can be undertaken.
  • We clean and prepare the area to ensure a quality repair, and to allow the resin to bond with the windscreen properly.
  • Next, we place our exclusive ART device over the damage and create a vacuum.
  • Then, we fill the chip with our special resin.
  • Our ART device ensures the resin is pushed right to the end of the micro-cracks.
  • We then use a UV light to harden the resin.
  • Lastly, we clean and polish the windscreen and remove any excess resin to ensure a smooth finish.
  • Our exclusive chip repair technology enables us to restore your windscreen in just 30 minutes and you can drive away immediately.
