The Scion TC windshield specifications include the following:
1. Material: The windshield is made of laminated glass, which consists of two layers of glass with a layer of PVB (polyvinyl butyral) interlayer in between. This construction provides strength and safety by preventing the glass from shattering into sharp pieces upon impact.
2. Size: The windshield dimensions are approximately 52 inches in length and 31 inches in width, providing sufficient coverage for the front of the vehicle.
3. Tint: The windshield may have a slight tint at the top to reduce glare and minimize the amount of sunlight entering the cabin. The tint is within the legal limit set by transportation authorities to ensure clear visibility.
4. UV protection: The windshield is designed to block a significant amount of harmful UV rays from entering the vehicle. This not only protects the occupants from potential skin damage but also prevents the interior materials from fading and deteriorating due to prolonged sun exposure.
5. Rain-sensing feature: Some Scion TC models may come equipped with a rain-sensing windshield wiper system. This system uses sensors mounted on the windshield to detect rainfall and automatically adjusts the wiper speed accordingly.
6. Defrosting capability: The windshield is equipped with built-in defrosting elements, often referred to as a defroster grid. These thin metal strips embedded in the glass help to quickly melt frost, ice, and condensation that may accumulate on the windshield during cold weather conditions.
7. Windshield washer jets: The windshield is equipped with washer jets located beneath the hood. When activated, they spray washer fluid onto the windshield, aiding in the cleaning process.
It is important to note that the exact specifications may vary slightly depending on the model year of the Scion TC. It is recommended to consult the vehicle’s owner’s manual or contact a Scion dealership for precise and up-to-date information.
