Hello, I just bought my first '03 9-3 and I was wondering if anyone had advice on the best interior dash cleaner. It appears that some of the matte finish on the dash is coming off. I don't want to strip any more away, but I would like to know the best way to preserve what I have. While protecting the dash from the sun's UV rays. Any advice would be appreciated, whether a way to repair what is coming off, or a product that will help protect and clean!

Thank you.

You're in the wrong forum... you need the 9-3SS forum for your car.

That said, if it's peeling, I would use water with a minor tinge of soap and a soft rag. Dry, then put on some 303 Protectant to stop future UV issues. Reapply regularly.

I use Turtle Wax products on the dash. Never leave a weird residue, seems to be doing the job for me as far as protection goes. Much better than Armor All.

Not sure what product you're using, but whatever it is should have chemical UV protection. 303 has that... Armor All was never very good at it.

Enough chemicals and BS to buy in our lives already...I usually use spit and water, but that's just cynical me..

I tend to use simple soap and water for cleaning and other low key stuff... but I don't think you can protect plastics from UV damage without a product specifically designed for that.

NO problem on the wrong forum... but you'll get answers more in tune with your specific model in the correct one. When it comes to mechanical matters, you definitely need the correct forum since there are model specific issues that are well known to those in the matching forum.
