    Default Does It Work?

    Sat Nav LCD screen has very fine scratches when seen in direct sunlight. Any easy way of removing these?

    I have heard that using a unused pencil rubber/eraser will remove them. Fact or fiction?

    Thanks

    Dunno about the pencil rubber, but a tiny bit of meguiars scratch-x may sort it. You'd have to be gentle though and not press on too much.

    I would avoid trying to polish it to be honest, it may take off the surface of the LCD screen.

    When i had my MG TF, the rear screen was plastic with it being a mid engine convertible. When i bought it the rear screen was imposible to see through fo how cloudy and scratched it was.

    I bought some plastic polish off ebay and it made it near perfect.

    I cant actually remember the name but it had a nato number... lol. Was apparantly the stuff they use on planes. Maybe this stuff would be a bit aggresive for the lcd screen, im not sure. Was about a tenner

    Actually thats a good point Matt. To be honest, anything that is remotely abrasive or will cause a bit of friction can do that. Tricky one. Perhaps leave it if it isn't that bad
