Re: Removiing polish from wiindsceeen
Unfortunately, the polycarbonate screen on the LT has a scratch resistant coating on it, and should never be cleaned with any type of abrasive cleaner. Many people have ruined stock shields because of cleaning it like it was acrylic. These polycarbonate shields are MUCH safer than the normal acrylic shields because they are extremely hard to break, and if they do break they do not shatter into shards like acrylic. Unfortunately though, polycarbonate is softer, and has to have a scratch resistant coating applied. The coating does not easily withstand any type of agressive cleaning though. Abrasive cleaning can cut through the coating, exposing the softer polycarbonate in spots.The owner's manual states to only use water and soft cloths to clean, and dealers should stress this information.
