My 2001 has some greyish white streaking coming down the rear window on the hardtop. Looks like it is some staining coming down from the hinge on the driver side. Looks like crap. I have tried to remove it when I washed the Jeep the other day and it did not come off.
Anyone else have this, and how do you get rid of it and make it stay away? I saw another TJ with hard top driving in my area the other day and it had the same streaking from the hinge.
I've tried searching and found nothing on this so far...
What you use to remove will depend on what it is. If it is a hard water deposit, then an acid like vinegar will work. If you wash your jeep with hard water, and some water gets trapped in the hinge where it drains out, it will evaporate and leave deposits behind.
If it is a grease stain from lubricant on the hinge, than a caustic solution will need to be used. You could try a small amount of baking soda and water. A degreaser might work too.
