  • The rear axle toe was adjusted.
  • Work was performed on the chassis which influences the body height.
  • The vehicle level sensor was readapted on vehicles with damping regulation.

Note

  • Before calibrating the driver assistance systems front camera, check the DTC memory and correct any faults.
  • To calibrate the driver assistance systems front camera, the geometric drive axle of the vehicle must be determined. It serves as a reference point for the Setting Device Basic Set -VAS6430/1-.
