Remove water spots in guage cluster and nav screen! help

Somehow the previous owner or carwash they used managed to get waterspots on the otherside of the guage cluster, and nav screen plastic windows.

Is it easy to remove these covers? it really bothers me.

Use a hot air dryer on the clusters/idrive, until condensation and hen use cool air to dry. Had this problem with my old Integra.

I should clarify its water spots, not condensation.

Whats there to clarify? Blindrage is telling you to use hot air to create condensation inside the cluster, which will then wash away the water spots..

Figured out its on the outside and the cause of the sports are from using invisible glass cleaner
Spotted another car too before figuring this out
Not sure if i can fix the chemical reaction. Cheap way to replace this plastic?

I am not buying into that lol! Car Soap and water works great on paint.

I think invisible glass somehow had a chemical reaction with the plastic.

I had smearing on my infiniti screen from some cleaner a body shop used. I tried rubbing alcohol on a micro fiber and cleared it right up no more hazeyness or streaks. It may work the same for the spots you have.
