  • Haze building up on interior glass?

    anyone else have this annoying problem?

    i get a buildup of a hazy substance on my front and rear glass especially. it's real hard to clean off and it just comes back within a week or two. i don't put any treatment on my dash and i haven't treated my leather seats in a year.

    what the hell :grr:

      You've been using the defrost/heat haven't you?

      Thats a typical sign of a leaking/seeping heater core.

        You can use 0000 steel wool with glass cleaner as a lube on the windows (except for the rear). Just make
        sure you use a new piece, you don't want rusty metal flakes splrinkled around.

              hmmm....good idea but i don't think so. it did it all summer long and i have no signs of coolant loss. also, how would that haze up the rear window?

              i'll definately keep my eye on the heater core now though.

                I'd agree. That's a typical sign of a failing heater core or heater core valve. Luckily, the job isn't too bad nor too expensive on our cars.

                        hah...no. i'm 26 so that would be nearly impossible

                        i don't smoke, never have, and no one gets near my car with a cigarette.


                        i don't like how everyone keeps chiming in about the heater core. the haze isn't bad, but definately there's a thin even coating after a few weeks. how come just as i think something on my car is working great, it breaks? :grr:

                          it could be the release agents in the plastic/vinyl...especially if you park in the sun and the interior is exposed to direct light. I can also depend on products that you use to treat the vinyl. I wouldn't worry about it at this point if it's VERY minor. but if it's clearly noticeable...you are likely looking at a heater core.

                            That is a result of the dashboard/other synthetic materials "out-gassing"(?) and releasing chemicals.



                            jht - it may not be the heater core, although its a possibility. With the onset of cooler weather, I'm willing to bet you've also been driving the car with the windows/sunroof closed more. It could also be partially from your exhaled breath. (We all know that a sprint in the M3 will cause you to pant heavily... )

                              I think its things like pollen, brake dust, diesel suet etc.
