Somehow I got a nasty drip stain on this cheap lens, and to make matters worse, its scratched to **** after I tried to rub it out with windex and paper towels. The lens itself is very cheap, can get it like $20 shipped, ( 78156-TVA-A01 ) has anyone taken this apart? I see like two screws underneath on top, is this an easy swap out or does the entire dash need to be disassembled?



Dont use paper towels on the lense, it sure as **** isnt glass.

Wow... that sucks!!! :sad: Sounds like this lens is plastic not glass.... are you familiar with Novus Plastic Polish? Since this lens is probably FUBAR'd anyway you may want to try their product before replacing the lens. If you do decide to try it if it were me doing it I would put painters tape on all the surrounding trim to prevent any of the product getting on it. Don't think the product would/could do damage but to be on the safe side I'd tape everything around it. I got familiar w/this product using it on windshields for my motorcycle. Good luck getting this resolved.

What did you do to fix this? I had the same issue and I'm figuring out if I should replace it OR just try the plastic polish? I did find a link to take everything apart below but not sure if I should go this route or not.
