Replacing windscreen for
head-up display (HUD)
On the vehicle affected, various information that is of relevance to the driver (e.g. speed,
navigation) is projected as a virtual image by the head-up display (HUD) onto the
windscreen, depending on the vehicle's equipment.
To ensure that the image is projected correctly, a special windscreen must be installed.
This windscreen is made up of three parts. An outer and an inner glass sheet are
connected by a wedge-shaped plastic film. This wedge shape prevents the head-up display
from producing a double image.
Example of display using a conventional windscreen:
If a conventional windscreen is used,
the projected image will be reflected
onto both the inner and outer glass.
This overlap will cause a double image.
E60 with head-up display (option 610)
If the windscreen has to be replaced, a special windscreen must be used.
This is marked with the letters "HUD" at the bottom right edge and guarantees the correct
function of the head-up display.
