    Bare with me...question is for the wifey's Tahoe. Had some good snow the last week or so in CO. Her Tahoe has been parked outside for several days without moving. We went out for a drive the other night and I noticed a lot of "haze" on the windshield where the ice sat. I'm assuming it's caused by different temperatures in the glass. I've ran the heater and hosed it down to try and even out the temp. The haze seems to clear out, but after sitting again, they reappear. It sucks and is effing distracting when the sun/lights come through the glass as it is really noticeable. Any ideas how to clear this up?

    Plain old Windex and newspaper.. Sounds crazy, but it works wonders.

    That and rainx is some AMAZIN stuff. If the haze is on the inside of your window, and you have the defroster on, that tells me that your AC isn't working. If that's the case, PM me. I am a 100% gm certified technician. Lol. DRIVING A YOTA! Lol

    Thanks fellas. I'll pickup some RainX tomorrow and give it a shot. The haze seems to be on the outside. As mentioned, the defroster makes the haze/glare go away, but when it's off, it reappears after awhile.
