    I made a big mistake while cleaning my interior the other day. Instead of using the vacuum brush of a soft cloth with glass cleaner, I wiped the dust with one of those dash mop things and scratched the hell out of my instrument cluster.

    Does anyone happen to know if I can just replace the clear plastic windows or are they fixed to cluster like most other cars and I'd have to replace the whole thing? It sure would suck to have to live with it!

    They're deep scratches. I think some to deep for that plastic polish, but good idea
