Hi
Not sure if anyone else has this, but noticed when very occasionally the car steams up the front window, you can see where the factory had fitted some labels on it with certain numbers on for the car. We have tried windowlene on it, but still an issue. Just picked it up from the dealer today as had a noisy fan!! All now sorted on that, and I mentioned this issue and they said they cannot do anything to remove this, and a new windscreen is needed ........however audi won't do this without photographic proof!! Anyone else come across this issue, seems crazy that even a dealer hasn't got some 'special stuff' to remove it from the windscreen?

I did have exactly the same problem - there was an A4-sized mark that looked like it was where old-fashioned Computer printer paper had been stuck to it.

I couldn't remove it either, but after having a new windscreen fitted due to stone damage, the replacement screen is absolutely fine...

(I'm not recommending you go rallying on gravel to build up enough damage for a replacement!)

I have the same issue with mine and I have tried all sorts to remove it
. If somebody does have a solution, I would be grateful.

Hmm- The only solution is to fit a new windscreen- a bit drastic...

I had my windscreen replaced (stone chip) by the AA, I noticed that they cleaned the glass after sticker removal with some "stuff" prior to install. Maybe if you live near a widscreen replacement company like autoglass etcthey might be able tohelp you out.

I have the same circular marks visible in some light on the Q3 and A3. I'll try the glass cleaner.
