    Default Gauge cover

    2015 RTL. There are some smears inside the clear cover over the analog gauges in the dash I want to clean. There are 4 or 6 (don't remember) screws that appear to just be holding the cover on. It looks like if you remove the screws, the cover is off and the gauges remain untouched and in place. Am I correct? Anything else that might be attached to it in the back?

    I didn't remove mine but the shop manager had one of the tech's do it. BRP put some type of anti-fog material on the back side of the gauge lens. Mine was so bad I swore somebody spilled coffee on the lens before it was installed. Anyway, just remove the dash remove the screws and clean the lens A good suggestion from someone else here was to place a towel down around the steering column so you won't lose any screws into the black hole of no return.

    I would go to one of the aftermarket parts sites and check the Fiche' for the instrument cluster …. I'm pretty sure they will show if it's a separate part and how it's assembled ……. Mike ..So I got curious and looked ….. the lens is a separate item like 2dogs said ….. good luck …. Mike

    Appreciate the offer but I think I will just pull the cover off mine, clean it, and put it back on.

    I have had my 2015 gauge cover off so I could clean the goop off of the inside. It wasn't difficult and I was finished in half an hour. I do suggest using a very soft microfiber or similar cloth and use only a mile soap and water. These covers scratch easily and scratches on the inside will drive you nuts. Remove cover carefully so you don't damage the seal which is reusable.
