Dash reflection

Be gentle please my first question

So my car Peugeot 3008 the problem i would like to solve is on sunny days the reflection off the top of the dash reflects way more than i would like.

Can anyone recommend a product that reduces reflection please, as an aside some of the abbreviations may not be immediately clear lol

When you mention its for a matte dash do you mean if my dash is shiny it’ll dull it down or only suitable for a matte dash in the first instance

It should dull it down and stop it being so shiny. What products are you using to clean your interior trim? Could well be that.

Maybe try the sonax Dash cleaner instead of the C6 then?

It could be worth ensuring you windscreen is clean as grease and grime can cause reflections on the windscreen, some grease and grime can only been a real vision blocker when the bright sun hits at a certain angle

That may be your problem.

Water and a paper towel wont remove grease it will simply wipe it around your screen.

Get a good glass cleaner, a short pile microfiber cloth and a microfiber ultrasued/glass buffing cloth.

Spray you glass cleaner on to the short pile microfiber cloth that is folded in 4's and give the glass a good clean.

Then once you have done that, use your microfiber ultrasued/glass buffing cloth to buff the glass to a shine and remove any streakes and remaining residue.

You may wish to do the first step twice depending on how bad it is, I would almost certainly say that is the cause
