Whats up with the coating on the instrument cluster glass. mine was spotty and would not clean up so i assumed it was on the inside.I took apart the cluster and tried to clean it , you could feel the spots and on further clean i realized i was removing some sort of coating.
What was it meant for?
I have now carefully removed all the coating and glass is crystal clear

I opened up quite a few to install my color conversion boards but only have seen 'moist' stains up till now. the 02-06 type can realy get hot inside so vapours can reside on the glass, think of your car window on the inside when you clean it.

I had the same issue with my cluster glass and YES there is some type of coating on the inside of the glass. Some of the coating was peeling and I scraped the rest off with a razor blade.

I posted this same issue up a few years ago and some here thought I was crazy :moon:

I took mine apart, polished it/cleaned it, and sealed it back up with aluminum tape. I put about 3-4 coats of Zaino polish on the inside to provide UV protection. Looks great now!

I used a car wax that had UV protection. Been clear for 5 years now. Joe
