      Cleaning Glass Area - HMSL

      Does anyone have any tips/tricks for cleaning the glass in front of the HMSL? Seems to be a complete PIA, wondering if anyone has discovered a makeshift tool or something that makes the task easier.

      Dunno what HMSL is, but I can reach into the windshield crevice using an As Seen on TV (tm) gizmo I bought a few years ago at Walgreen's. It's got a pivoting microfiber pad at the end of a long handle.

      Ah, here it is, the Windshield Wonder: http://www.asseenontv.com/detail.php?p=296792

      Is that what you need?

      I too have no idea what HMSL is. Looked it up but don't think it's Hierarchical Music Specification Language.
      Help us help you.

      LOL - yes, it's the high mount stop light. sorry, i thought that was a commonly known acronym. i tried using a single layer of microfiber sprayed with glass cleaner, even my tiny fingers couldn't get all the way in there to clean it. i had noticed that the glass looked very dirty and now my ocd has kicked in and i REALLY want to clean it.

      That area seems to collect some lingering moisture that takes a little time to evaporate so I can see how it gets a little dirty. Now you got me obsessing about cleaning it!
      I'd imagine the microfiber is too thick. What about a good quality paper towel?
      I got a little tool (basically a plastic handle) from Canadian Tire that can reach all the way down the rest of the glass but that of course is easier.

      glad i could help

      i'm thinking it might turn into a two person job with a lookout that verifies i'm actually getting all of the area. also concerned about pulling down on the cover too much and causing a permanent space for even more dirt to make its way in there.
