Hi guys,

I own a CRZ and at the bottom of the front windshield, there a part that always collect water.
And I am not sure if its due to rain water or tap water collecting there. Here's a pic.



Any way i can try to remove it?

Ive tried glass cleaner and elbow grease, but doesnt seem to work at all. Am afraid it might be permenantly marked.

Thanks

I'm not an expert on this, but i'll probably help out by asking you some questions that might help the rest that have similar problems or could diagnose further (terasa like customer rep pulak :rofl:)

1 - When did you notice it?
2 - Have you consulted your SC about this? What was their response?

I'm a bit confuse when you said that the area seems collects water, but on another statement you mentioned that there's a mark at the screen due to water. I'm going gonna stab in the dark and say that, the mark is caused by the water being collected on that particular spot over time. If what I understand is true;

Have you tried pouring water over that particular area either little or a lot and see how water builds up in that area (build up rate as in slow or fast, and the quantity of water available). Also, how long the water stays there usually until it fully evaporates?

I can only suggest that you bring to your SC if you haven't gone there yet since your car is under warranty (since you said you drive / own a CRZ which fo sure under warranty :biggrin:)
 

Bakry

hi BuroQ,

1.I noticed it just now actually.
2. Have yet to consult my SC as i work 6 days a week and my next day off is NEXT tuesday (18th Nov)

I ran my fingers on it and i can feel that its not smooth, as if there is some build up on it.

Sorry if my english is confusing. Lol. But yes, you are right. Whenever it rains, water will slide down the windshield to that funnel area which will then flow into small holes at the bottom. However, a small amount of water will always be left where that water mark is.

The mark wasnt there the last time i washed the car at home, which was like a month ago. Ever since then, ive been sending my car regularly to a detailer for a wash.
