Maintenance and Cleaning

Windshield and Roof

The FUV Windshield and Roof are made of high quality clear polycarbonate, not glass. Clean with warm water and a soft, clean cloth. If necessary, use a small amount of liquid dish washing soap.


Never use glass cleaners on the Windshield or Roof. Glass cleaners can permanently damage the polycarbonate.

The following common liquids can damage the windshield and roof:

  • Ammonia
  • Vinegar
  • Bleach
  • Citrus-based cleaners
  • Remove minor scratches with a polishing compound specifically designed for use on polycarbonate surfaces.
  • Do not use rain repellent products that are designed for use on glass (i.e. Rain-X®).
  • A recommended rain repellent for polycarbonate windshields is RainZip® by National Cycle.

Never use a dry cloth, or your hand, to wipe clean the roof or windshield. Using a dry cloth to clean your roof or windshield will rub the dirt and dust into the polycarbonate, scratching or causing damage to it.
