2019 Lamborghini Urus

1 I highly recommend a detailed pre-inspection of the interior and exterior of the vehicle, followed by a pre-scan. Start by removing the interior parts to confirm you have the correct windshield. Pry off the cover from the bottom to remove the covers behind the rear-view mirror. By doing this, the mirror often comes off with the cover. If only the cover comes off, then turn the mirror counterclockwise to dismount.
2 To remove the top cover, pry it off the same way, preferably with a plastic tool to prevent creasing the plastic covers.
3 Disconnect the rear-view mirror and set it aside in a safe place.
4 To dismount the camera, pull off the right side of the camera and then slide it to the right. To remove the condensation sensor, open the two upper tabs and then slide it up. To remove the rain sensor, unclip the two sides, pull off slowly from the top, then slide it off from the bottom of the bracket.
5 If the new windshield doesn’t have a heated hood cover for the camera, transfer the original one to the new windshield. Clean the camera’s viewing window thoroughly before reinstalling the hood cover.
6 To remove the parts under the hood, start by removing the windshield wipers. Note the parking position of the windshield wipers. Then pry the cowling off the windshield’s retaining moulding and remove it. This is one of the easiest vehicles to remove the parts under the hood.
7 To remove the side mouldings, begin prying it off from the top first, then work your way down.
8 I recommend a wire or fiber line cut-out tool for removal. These windshields tend to be pretty tight, and they stress-crack easily, so be careful to protect the VIN number.
9 Prep the body and the glass according to your adhesive manufacturer’s recommendations.
10 Apply the urethane either on the glass or on the body of the vehicle; just be sure you make precise contact with the old urethane.
11 Clean the rain sensor and the camera’s viewing window before reinstalling them. Reinstall interior and exterior parts in the reverse order of removal.
12 The replacement is completed, and now it’s time to recalibrate the camera to safely return the vehicle back to the road. After recalibration, conduct a post-inspection
and test all of the components. This was a fun and easy vehicle on which to work.
