2020 CX-30 GS FWD, Snowflake White
sounds like an air can is the best way to clean this part of the dash
Hi, I have the same problem. Did you finally manage to get it replaced?I live in Switzerland and bought a CX-30 nine months ago. I am struggling with the same thing. I called my dealership and said this part could not be replaced, but I see through your experience that this is not true. I am really dissatisfied with the overall quality of the car's materials and finishes. They are really shitty. I am now pushing to get the plastic cover changed. I cannot really stand it.
I understand your point but I Never had that problem with other cars.It would be the same sconario on the paint work on the outside.. let me tell you folks any time there is dust / grime you never clean it dry because essentially that dust and grime is abrasive and by cleaning it dry you are essentially grinding it in causing scratches.. if you did the same thing on the paint in the outside with dust ,grime etc and ran your hand across the paint you would cause scratches in the paint via swirl marks.. or paint maring on my center console iv cleaned it several times useing a total interior cleaner and protect by chemical guys which is just my choice of product and nine is little to no scratches on it so as a rule of thumb never clean it dry as even the paint work will scratch.
Iv had a Acura El .. ford ranger , Nissan Sentra type R .. Nissan Qashqai and along with my 15 years of professional automotive experience in the automotive industry working in a few different roles right down to a professional detailer where I was sent to California for training and all the used vehicle reconditioning iv ever done iv always come across some degree of centre instrument cluster scratches and along with my own vehicles of which two wher used vehicle and most of the time you can fix it with some light polish but others from the previous owner it was so bad I'd have to order a new one before It could go onto the used lot so it's a issue on all vehicles I'd say in general and with plastics and paint now having to be environmentally friendly it's allot easier but steps can be taken to avoid such things 🙂 like I have done on my CX 30 and iv detailed it several times cus I'm OCD with that stuff. had my CX 30 since February.I understand your point but I Never had that problem with other cars.
LOL! I already told people on here the same thing and to never dry rub it .. always use a vehicle interior cleaning spray.. LOL would you wipe your few thousand dollar BIG screen tv screen dry and not expect scratches.. HELLO same thing it will get scratches on it .. its common sense same thing with automotive paint .. why would you take a microfiber towel with dust dirt and grime on the paint and rub the microfiber cloth on it and go after OMG look at all the scratches nowSeriously guys, just polish it; its at most a 2 min job. Sure it won't be 100% perfect, but better than nothing! I'd rather not let the dealership open up my dash for fear of subsequent creaks and rattles down the road due to improper fitting.
Here's a video to show you how you can polish the screen IF you have scratches. Once you're done polishing, don't touch it anymore!
Yeah buddy, so what can you do apart from complaining after spending so much money on the vehicle? Don't touch it after you polish it, get a blower if there's dust. Leave it alone, jeez.I had mine replaced and even with extreme care, my new lens is not better. This is not normal and It is very bad to have it in my face when just spent 37000$.
Wiped mine several times.. THE CORRECT WAY HMM lol NO SCRATCHES!!! Had mine since feb of this year..Yeah buddy, so what can you do apart from complaining after spending so much money on the vehicle? Don't touch it after you polish it, get a blower if there's dust. Leave it alone, jeez.
Alternatively you can go back to the dealership and get another replacement, but bring the new part to a detailing shop and have them polish the plastic for you prior to installation, then get the dealership to install it. No guarantees of no damage in the process of installation.
Skin the solution how you want it; just don't be part of your own problems.
Wow. This happened to me in my 1st day over ownership, but just two scratches.
There is a cheap replacement panel on a website that I bought quite of other accessories had from my Mazda.. I'm tempted to buy it as mine is scratched as well but couldn't figure out how I would remove the existing to put in the replacement? Any ideas? They show some pictures but it doesn't do justice for instructions..Wow. This happened to me in my 1st day over ownership, but just two scratches.
Very poor choice by Mazda using this material. I can see it only getting worse over time. They should RECALL this part.
Hmm that’s interesting. I’d be way to scared to do that myself though. But I am wondering if the screen protector that they sell and suggest you put on, if it would actually cover up the scratches or make them less visible 🤔There is a cheap replacement panel on a website that I bought quite of other accessories had from my Mazda..
