Nissan/INFINITI Glass Replacement Requirements

The role of the windshield is a lot more complex than simply allowing a view of the road ahead. It is considered a structural part of the vehicle as it contributes to the strength of the roof and A-pillars. The windshield helps to manage collision energy and has become an integral part of several advanced safety systems.

It is commonly asked, "What is required when replacing a windshield?" With this question in mind, we will be presenting a series of articles that highlight some of the requirements from the various OEMs. As always, it is important to read through each vehicle-specific procedure to ensure a complete, safe, and quality repair.

Let’s see what Nissan/INFINITI has to say for the 2016-2022 model years.

  • Nissan/INFINITI specifies the use of a Genuine Nissan/INFINITI Urethane Adhesive Kit (if available) or equivalent.
  • Be sure to refer to the urethane manufacturer’s directions for curing time specifications, and do not use adhesive after its expiration date.
  • During the installation process, it is important to keep the door glass open until the stationary glass installation is complete. This will help to prevent the sealant from cracking should the doors be opened and closed, causing a pressure change.
  • When the rain sensor is removed from the windshield, the sensor cannot be reused.
  • Do not remove the lane camera unit bracket and the cover bracket from windshield glass. The lane camera unit bracket and the cover bracket must be replaced together with windshield glass as an assembly.

As a special caution, vehicles equipped with a forward-facing camera will need to have the camera image calibration performed. More information on this system can be found in the vehicle-specific service manual under: Cruise Control & Driver Assistance ➤ Driver Assistance System ➤ Driver Assistance System ➤ Removal and Installation ➤ Front Camera Unit
