The instrument bezel on my 2002 996 needs to be replaced. A detailer at a car wash spray something on the lens that will not come off. The dealer wants to replace the entire instrument display which is $1000+

What have you tried to correct the damage of the display lens?
Customer: replied 7 years ago.
I have tried plexus, windex, water, and another plastic lens cleaner recommended by a detailer. The dealer tried to get it off as well.

Before replacing the display there is a product from 3M that is for the headlights (plastic lens covers). What it consist of is sanding the lens with several different grades of sand paper then a cleaner to clean it and a clear product to cover it with when done. It wont look perfect but it does a great job and a bunch cheaper than replacing the display!


You can get the product at any parts store.

Can you give the names of the products I need to do this? As much detail as you can provide the better it is for me.
Expert:  brownjeff replied 7 years ago.
I think it is called a head light refurbish kit and I know it is made by 3m. If you tell the parts store this information they will know what your talking about.
