    Default How to Clean a Dirty Dash Panel

    Somehow have some liquid staining behind the plastic on my dash...right side on the tach from 3-6 and left side on the speedo next to 60-100.
    I removed the torx screws on the panel surround, but this doesn't allow me to just remove the plastic panel to clean the back of it.
    What else do I need to remove???

    Thanks!

    p.s. Yes, i finally clicked 3k miles on Blackbird yesterday... Thanks, groundhog

    Not sure about the ST but on my 2015 RT it was a common problem with the staining on the plastic glass over the tach and speedo.BRP replaced it under warrenty.

    The above picture was part of the process to paint the dashboard( seen in any of my threads, or posts).

    U can try removing the whole cluster (described in manual for changing headlights) the clear lense is not supposed to remove however, if you have a leak maybe you can find it & suck the water out somehow, or warranty claim

    Nice! If only uncle Bob (as mentioned in the video) would perform the multi-panel removal required to clean up something that isn't supposed to happen in the first place...
