Body - Stain/Film On Windshield Glass Perimeter



TECHNICAL



Bulletin No.: 09-08-48-006



Date: September 18, 2009



Subject: Clear Stain or Film on Inside Perimeter of Windshield Glass (Clean/Polish Glass)



Models:



2010 and Prior Passenger Cars and Trucks (Including Saturn and Saab)



2010 and Prior HUMMER H2, H3



Condition



Some customers may comment on a clear stain or film on the inside of the windshield glass. This condition appears along the outer edges of the



glass along the top, bottom or A-pillar areas. Normal glass cleaning procedures will not remove the stain.



Cause



The assembly plant uses a clear sealer/primer on the outer edge of the windshield glass to improve adhesion to the urethane adhesive that bonds the



windshield glass to the vehicle body. Excess sealer/primer may drip or flow onto the windshield and cause a stain. Once the sealer/primer dries, it



may appear to have etched the glass.



Correction



Note



A "white" type of toothpaste is recommended for this repair. Gel-type toothpaste may provide less satisfactory results.



Use a small amount of toothpaste on a soft, cotton cloth to polish the stained area. It may be necessary to wrap the cloth around a paint stir stick or a



similar tool to reach the lower corners of the windshield glass.



After polishing the glass, clean the inside of the windshield glass with a clean, damp, cotton cloth and verify all of the stain is removed. Do not use



any cleaners or solvents - use only clean warm water.
