Reattach cameras to windshields


If a camera is not attached to the windshield, correctly during installation, the camera can become unstuck. The camera is no longer able to capture videos of harsh driving events. You must reattach the camera to continue receiving videos.

Before you begin

You’ll need the following:

  • 3M VHB adhesive pads
  • Alcohol wipes

Note: The windshield glass temperature should not be too hot or cold. Please install the camera in moderate temperature (recommended between 50°F–80°F).

Procedure

  1. Clean the area on the windshield where the camera will be placed using the alcohol wipes that came with your camera.
