I can’t believe this is happening to me. It’s so silly and yet it has become a real safety issue!
I’ve got what looks and feels like water vapor on the inside of my SUV windshield. It creates
an awful whitish smear that reflects the sun. When the sun is low in the sky I can barely see
through the windshield.
I’ve tried a microfiber cloth with distilled water, isopropyl alcohol, and washer fluid. Nothing
seems to completely clean the inside of my windshield.
It must be water vapor (or something similar) because there is no odor and it is not slick or
greasy. Opening the windows or running the defroster helps a little, but not much.
I’ve been extremely lucky with this SUV. It was purchased new and there has never been a
serious problem. I just had a basic maintenence check at the Ford dealer. They changed
the oil and was handed that sheet showing everything they checked. No problems.
There are a hundreds of glass cleaning chemicals and products. Many years ago I tried Rain-X
when it was a new product. It did repel water, but it was a pain in the neck to use. Do you think
Rain-X might prevent vapor buildup on the inside of my windshield?
Please guys, tell me how to resolve this crazy problem. I don’t want to crash when the sun
reflects off that whitish smear.
