The plastic cover over the instrument panel is fogging over.

Customer Question
The plastic cover over...

The plastic cover over the instrument panel is fogging over. I want to remove only the plastic cover and clean it. Dealer wants to remove the entire instrument panel.

Mechanic's Assistant: What is the model/year of your Ford?

2013 ford fusion

Mechanic's Assistant: Are you fixing your Fusion yourself? What have you tried so far?

Well yes, the dealer wants to remove the entire instrument panel. Would like them to do it, but the cost is prohibitive. Have not tried anything yet..

Hi my name is ***** ***** am here to assist you.

This is an easy job to do.

Remove two screws on the top of the instrument panel .

Slide the top out and pull all electrical connections off the back.

With panel on table gently prize the plastic clips up to release the plastic front.

Wipe screen dry and make sure instrument panel unit is dry or it will happen again.

What Customers are Saying:

AlvinC answered a question about my Ford truck that only someone with an in-depth knowledge of his subject would have known what was going on.

Rich DUSA

Because of your expertise, you armed me with enough ammunition to win the battle with the dealer. They are installing a fuel filter and fuel pump at no charge to me.

MollyUSA

I needed help with my car on Saturday morning....got a response in 5 minutes, and it was the perfect solution. Thanks again to your service.

Jason V.Kirkland, WA

I do know, after going though this with JustAnswer, that I can somewhat trust my mechanic but I will always contact you prior to going there.

BRNew Jersey

I would (and have) recommend your site to others I was quite satisfied with the quality of the information received, the professional with whom I interacted, and the quick response time. Thanks, and be sure that I'll be back whenever I need a question answered in a hurry.
