According to a company press release, Mercedes-Benz USA said it “strongly recommends” using only Mercedes-Benz parts for windshield glass replacements. In the same release, the company mentioned the windshield glass manufactured for its vehicles has particular specifications.
Other glass manufacturers may not have the same access to the technology that can ensure one hundred percent compatibility with Mercedes-Benz vehicle systems, according to the company.
Its windshield glass contains solar glass technology and is coated with a thin transparent liquid that provides passengers with protection against ultraviolet rays.
According to the statement, the company strongly recommends using Mercedes-Benz parts. The document also outlines why there is a need to do so. What this essentially means is that should there be a need to replace a windshield, only Original Equipment Manufacturer (OEM) glass should be used.
