Sucker Marks on the two front windows caused by build robot

Post by Craigann B » Sat Dec 02, 2017 11:53 pm

When the completed doors are reinstalled on the main body, the door is supported by a robot with a 6 sucker head on the windows.
This has left marks on the inside of my two front door windows.
These only appear when the car starts to steam up on cold or wet days before the ventilation clears the windows. They will appear if you breathe on the window to check where they are.
I have tried every window cleaner, vinegar, soap, white spirit etc and things I should not have taken into the car.
I have just returned from a VIP visit to the Solihull factory which my family gifted to me. It was fantastic and would highly recommend this visit. This is where I saw the robot responsible for the marks.

A decent window cleaner will remove them, use Meguiars, link below.

These marks,also on mine diappeared when I had the front windows tinted so I guess whatever was used to clean the glass proir to the film being applied did the trick. Basic solvent or thinners would also remove these rings.

Panel wipes ( alcohol ) should remove the marks.
Available from any vehicle parts/ accessory shop, the shop in the picture sell a packet of 5 wipes for £1.50

I have tried the old favourites vinegar & water, vinegar & washing liquid, white spirit, alcohol, acetone, thinners, sticky stuff remover.
Commercial products Windowlene, Diamondbrite Glass Cleaner, Meguiar’s PerfectClarity Glass Cleaner, AutoGlym Car Glass Polish, CarBrite Glass Product, Optical Glass Cleaner, window wipes, etc..

Looks like Jaguar will have to change out the glass under warranty.

This rather sounds like silicone contamination, maybe the wrong kind of sucker or not cleaned properly, on some property window glazing I had done the fitters made a mess and got silicone sealant on the glass. There was no way of removing it and the sealed units had to be changed, a bit drastic but the only solution.
