Embark on a journey of precision and restoration as Smart AVR tackles the challenge of calibrating the front radar on a 2014 Volkswagen Golf R post-front-end collision. The vehicle’s Adaptive Cruise Control (ACC) system had been rendered inactive, prompting a detailed diagnostic process. Through meticulous scanning and road testing, a ‘radar misadjusted’ fault was uncovered, necessitating a complex calibration process. Despite multiple attempts and intricate adjustments, the radar’s angle remained elusive, hinting at an underlying issue. Further investigation revealed a twisted housing bracket, missing securing clips, and damaged wiring, indicating significant impact damage. Smart AVR’s solution involved replacing the faulty radar unit with a new bracket from Volkswagen, followed by extensive testing to ensure the ACC system’s proper function. This case study not only demonstrates Smart AVR’s expertise in ADAS calibration but also highlights the importance of thorough diagnostics and adherence to manufacturer guidelines for safe and reliable system operation.
