|Jngrbrdman||As it has already been mentioned, this is likely armor all (or some other dash protectant) that got on the cluster. That stuff is bad news on clear plastics like that. There are a lot of interior detailers that are totally safe to use to clean and give a little bit of protection, but when it comes to applying a protectant I like to just spray it on a towel and wipe things down. That way the overspray doesn't get all over everything.|

|Sr1239||I had the same thing on my Integra, I just bought a brand new OEM lens... so clean can't even really tell it's there.|

|reluktantskeptik||I had the same problem in my 95 SE. Tried all kinds of cleaners and nothing helped as it seemed to be in the first few layers of the plastic. Took out the cluster, removed the plastic face cover, and took a 3M headlight buffer kit to it. 15 minutes later it looked like a new faceplate. Just make sure you remove the rubber grommet from around the trip reset button whole before you start sanding it, and it should be fine.|

|MrSwirly||It might be light cigarette ash burns. I bought my Teg used, and a smoker owned it before me. There were ash burn spots all over the guage cluster window, looked kinda like water spots. I just bought a new cluster window, worked 100%|

|arnonet14||I used a magic eraser and it worked about 90%|

|acu129||You can try using Megs heavy duty headlight restoration kit. It can surely remove it.|

Anyways, I had the same problem.
The fix? I just used some Meguiars PlastX and it took it right off.

Finally! I found something that worked about 85%
I used meguiars headlight compound and worked it in for a good 30mins. got rid of 85-90% of the spots.
(the spots werent water, and they were on the plastic in the front, they had like a haze to them kinda like a headlight, except not yellow and were splattered.)
(i was told it was probably armor all that didnt get wiped of)
after the compound, for a finishing touch i went over the whole thing on the outside and insind very quickly with some lacquer thinner. now its at about 90-93% clear.
((although i like the way it looks without the clear cover, might just leave it off (and no im not gonna hit the gauges by accident, ive taken apart my whole cluster and installed led strips) Im not gona mess up my gauges)

can you snap some clear pictures of it? i'm wondering how it even got water on it. wet-sanding is kinda out of the question for the most part since it's plastic - also you shouldn't be using chemicals to remove stains, these aren't your favorite shirt where bleach will take out a ketchup stain. something may have changed the top layer of the plastic by being there long enough, like sap if the previous owner left it out while swapping gauges or something.
again, pictures will help us.

|DPancoast||It's plastic, it might be actually on the inside as in, in the plastic itself not on the "inside" or outside of the plastic|
