Re: [DML] Windshield Film Driving Me Nuts

Yeah, same problem here and my dash is original. I've always assumed
the composition of the glass was a little different than most cars,
thus the cause. The film doesn't form on my other windows, or on the
dash or anywhere else in the car, just on the windshield. Also, like
you, it only happens on hot, sunny days. I keep a couple of rags
behind my seat to clean the window with.

Responding to Robert, I can't possibly see how mine could be related
to coolant; wouldn't you smell it? I'd think the smell would be pretty

I agree this is annoying. A fix would be nice.
