I would just take the car back to the firm which cleaned the car. As for soaking MF in boiling water. Generally not a good idea as the fibres start to melt at 60C and so stop become effective and may start to damage the paint

Right I have spoken to a couple of people on various forums and Facebook pages and they say it can be fixed with a good soft machine polishing and some fine polish and some IPA.

Im getting a Das pro 6 this weekend and then I will try a small patch.

Please be very careful with the polisher and be as gental as you can, the last thing you want is to strike through the vynal wrap.

Yes defo, I have a small patch where when I was using a mf cloth I thought "what's that" and rubbed a tiny patch with slightly more pressure than normal while buffing off some wax, hey presto, may as well used a green scotch pad. Lucky for me it's towards the centre of my roof which unless standing on a 2 foot ladder can not be seen.


I wouldn't give up with trying to claim off the company though. I would make that my first priority, if you do try something and make it worse then you could kiss good bye to any chance of a claim.

Rather than you try fix it, why not give them a chance to get a professional involved. If they refuse to make any effort to rectify it, I would go down the small claims court. Get a quote from Renault, (official in writing) also get a couple of evaluations from professionals either to try clean and also of how they consider the damage was done.

I've polished decals before with my Rupes with a yellow pad and a finishing polish and it removed some fine swirls so I would say find a local pro Detailer and see if he can help before you get it replaced

I fully understand what people are saying so I will be very careful.

I have just nipped outside and took some more pictures and you can see how thick the sticker actually its.

I have also sent a message to another forum user who had a blue 197 and had a similar issue with his.

















As for chasing the company to repair / replace the sticker there is no point as its a couple of Romanian cowboys in a car park with a couple of jet washers.
All I wanted was for them to jet wash the car with no soap and before I knew it they had sprayed TFR all over it.

Wow, I can only imagine how peeved off you must be.


If they are charging money, and working on other people's property, they still need insurance, if not them, then who ever runs the car park must have. It costs between £60-£70 to make a small claim.

It was sprayed with a chemical and from what I'm lead to believe its TFR and looks like water spots.

I have not tried anything as I'm getting so many people tell me so many things so I do have a lot of choices and avenues to go down.

It would be very very kind of you to send some product for me to try.
