Hello ladies and gents. I've got a question regarding cleaning the instrument cluster. Is there anything special you guys do when cleaning?

Use a can of compressed air. The actual gauges aren't so bad, but using a microfiber on the radio display is enough to scratch the heck out of it.

I like to use a brush attachment on a shop-vac for this. Does a great job!

^^^^ I would worry about the long term affects of alcohol hazing the plastic, (guessing but....)

Possible....it totally evaporates within seconds though. Not sure if anything is left behind. Longterm may be a problem but shorterm it looks great :smilie

They are actually the lens cleaners used for glasses.....looking at the ingrediants they are composed mainly of isopropol alchohol.

I use this stuff called Novus 1. It seems to work well.
Purchased it at TAP Plastics, but I've seen listed on ebay, too.

I haven't touched the radio display yet... on my previous car 2011 V6, one very very very gentle wipe with an expensive microfiber towel looked like I dragged a sandpaper across it

:/
