Default 2010 and 2011 Hi-Lo Front Window

The front window on our 2310H has become foggy looking. I have tried various products to attempt to clean it but it appears the problem lies in the material. The window is made from Lexan which is similar to what football helmets and maybe motorcycle windshields are made from.

Does anyone else have this problem or have a solution?

Default Just a thought.

Would a glass repair place have a commercial product that will do a better job of restoration? Maybe a phone call will give you an answer.

Good thought Sam! It made me think to call the local cycle shop as well.
Thanks!

I wonder if the headlight restorer products would work?

I'm thinking that it is a breakdown of the Lexan do to time and weather. If that's the case only replacement will fix it. I've tried a number of things and none seem to have any effect. It looks like it is cruddy dirty. Hi-Lo screwed up I'm afraid.

Default I agree!!

HiLo screwed up when they changed the front window to Lexan. As you have found out it looks dirty. It doesn't have any window guard. On a four lane road the uncoming traffic is somewhat blinded by the reflection of the Lexan. HiLo probably thought this material would save on weight. Nothing like tried and true materials.

The good old operating window with the cover was the best. We would have opted for a 2009 2209T but there were no more to be had at the time.

But, I do have a brand new window that was given to us because the gas bottle cover scraped the original. I stored the new one away. They also gave us a fiberglass bottle cover that gave more clearance to stop the problem.

Rich, You could possibly apply a "window tint" to help camouflage the effects of your front window. Just saying..............................

That's a good idea. I'll have to check it out.

The window tint idea may help keep the interior cooler too, since the window doesn't open for ventilation.
