On a recent trip, while sitting in the passenger seat, I noticed something strange by the edge of the windshield. At first I was afraid that the windscreen got chipped, which would be upsetting given the car is only a few months old. However, when we stopped and I looked at it, I saw that it was a globule of something gooey. I managed to take most of it off with my hand (don’t know if touching it was the best idea but there we are), but it left a residue.
I forgot about it until I was cleaning the car recently. I tried to rub the residue away using a micro fibre cloth and Meguiar’s Quik Detailer, but no luck. It feels very solid and stuck on. If I had to guess, I would say it was some kind of glue, but I don’t know for sure.
I’m attaching the best photo I could take of this thing. I apologise if it’s blurry, my phone was struggling to focus on it.
Any hope of taking it off? I haven’t yet tried glass cleaner. A quick internet search also suggested Goo Gone, but I wanted to get someone else’s opinion before going out to buy that.
It probably doesn’t matter, but the car is a Tesla Model 3. Appreciate any help!
update: Glass cleaner took most of it off, but there is still some residue left. Not sure if harder scrubbing will take it off, or if I need something else. But either way, it’s significantly less noticeable now.
