Really? My car is the HUD and ive never seen or noticed that the windshield has a different finish to it in the HUD area.


Like others mentioned, hope in another camaro (even at the stealership) and compare.

It's been awhile since I've sat in one with the HUD windshield. I remember that area looked different, but it may have just been a reflection. Never noticed it in mine though and I added HUD.

Here are a couple of pictures I took of the HUD to see what it looks like.

The HUD image is projected on the surface of the windshield glass. Since a windshield is composed of two thicknesses of glass, there are two reflections. In order to align these two images, a wedged shape plastic laminate is used between the two layers of glass. If the dimensions of the plastic laminate are not correct, the images will not fully align and the HUD image will not appear clear. In order to diagnose this condition, you can apply Vaseline to the outside of the windshield in the area of the HUD display. If there is no longer a ghost image, the problem can be attributed to the windshield. The extent of the ghosting can be helpful in determining if the vehicle has the proper windshield. If the ghosting offset is greater than 25% of the width of a line/bar of a HUD character, the vehicle likely does not have a HUD windshield. If the offset is less, or the vehicle definitely has a HUD windshield, another windshield can be installed that may have less distortion/variance. Use of a non-OEM HUD windshield may result in this condition. HUD windshields should be identified in the lower right corner of the windshield.
2. Under certain ambient lighting conditions, it could appear that all of the various segments within the HUD are on, and/or the inside of the HUD box will be visible in the windshield. Typically, further questioning of the customer will reveal a correlation between the time of day and what direction the vehicle is traveling in relation to the sun. This is a normal condition if the sun is shining at a certain angle directly into the HUD display.
3. New IP pads may emit fumes that cause a film to form on the HUD lens. Regular household cleaners will not remove this type of film. Isopropyl Rubbing Alcohol should be used to clean the lens. Use a soft cloth and GENTLY clean the HUD lens.

Definitely looks like the wrong windshield. I saw a post on the other forum where someone had their windshield replaced and near the GM etching, it said HUD. Can someone with the proper windshield confirm theirs is etched HUD as well?

Yes, the windshield label must say "Laminated GS HUD"

if you don't want to go the route of having the windshield replaced, you can "kind of" fix it but having a tint show put a clear film (usually called solar tint) in the HUD area.

In my 2010 Avalanche, I had purchased one of these:

http://www.ebay.com/itm/OBD-II-HUD-S...726895&vxp=mtr


and it comes with a piece of dark tint, I didn't care for, so I had a tint shop put on a piece of clear solar tint and it worked fine, and you can't really see it..

all depends on your desires.

this is the stuff you want though:

so that you can't see it on the windshield.

What all the GM cars with HUD use is DuPont™ ButaciteŽ wedged PVB interlayer this is a layer between the 2 layers of glass, it is essentially the same thing as what I am describing above but between the glass layers instead of on the outside.

Wow that is a clear HUD!! Took into the dealer on Saturday and received a call today. I was told the windshield was replaced before we bought it used, since I bought the car used as a "Certified Pre-Owned" from the Chevy dealer, the windshield would not be covered. I do not feel I should have to pay the bill, since being Certified it has passed strict standards and has been reconditioned back to new. I am not to happy at the moment. The service manager said he will have to call me back with a new plan.

Thanks for all the help.

Send a message via MSN to Scott@Bjorn3D
Call GM customer service. If it was bought as a certified car all should be working and right on it.
