So it seems C-HRs are having a pretty big problem with the glass. Windscreen cracking, DRLs cracking and now my rear lights glass looks like it was sprayed with some acid. Tried cleaning it, but no luck. The other glass near by is completely clear.

Went to my dealer and they told me it can not be glass fault. They said they'll try to polish it. Don't think this will do any good.

Just from the pics it looks like water marks. This is the first time I have come across anything with the lense covers.
I have found that Autoglyms Fast Glass brings all the lenses up very well and removes most marks and bugs.

From the pics however it does look like a defect with that one cover?

By polishing it will disappear for sure. But the strange thing is that the left part of the light has nothing. Was this protected (wrap under you garage)and the right part of the light not. But it seems like acid rain drops.

Sure looks like sun-dried waterspots from washing. The spots can be the chalk thats in the water..
Maybe washed it once in hot sun?

Just try a polish. After that you can wax them so they get a thin protection layer.
A coating will give even more protection but is more expensive.

I'm leaning on the idea, that something was sprayed while the trunk was open. I wouldn't wash my car with the trunk open :) You can see the glass right beside is clear. Also tried cleaning these spots with no luck. Definitely not a leftovers from water.

Did you try a car polish? I am almost sure that will help. ;)

You sure have the skills to put polish or wax on a pad.. make round circles with it on a surface and wipe it off with a microfiber towell.
Something like Collinite 845 will be your friend for anything when you have it..

Oh.. Forgot to mention - I'm also too lazy :D
Will see what the dealer will say, then maybe I'll look where to buy some polish and cloth (all of these says it's microfiber, but usually it's a complete crap, so it's hard to find a good one)
