Q: How do I clean the glass?

How do I clean the glass?

It’s just as important to keep the glass clean on your car as it is to regularly wash and wax the exterior, if not more so. Cleaning the glass is easy, and here’s how to do it:

  1. Use a good glass cleaner.

  2. Use a soft cloth.

  3. Using newspaper is not recommended.

  4. When cleaning the back window, you may need to remove the third brake light. To do

that, just:

  • Push the light housing backward, toward the glass.

  • Lift up and then pull it away.

  • Clean the glass and replace the housing.

Tip

It’s normal for the windows to develop a film on the inside after sitting in direct sunlight/heat.
