Plastic wrap on hood and front fender 2012

Hello forum members. A dirt line is becoming more visible on the hood that has the plastic wrap. Has anyone removed theirs? How?

If the normal wash doesnt do it, try a cleaner wax.


Then I would wax the whole car as dealers dont do it

So what appears to happening is that the edge is lifting ever so slightly and the dirt appears under the wrap rather that at the edge.

Clear bra on the hood installed by the dealer is what it sounds like.

If the clearbra is lifting, it might be time to remove it altogether...

... since it sounds like the dirt is really bugging you. And that line appears on all cars with the clear bra, with time. Dust/fine particles get caught in the soft vinyl and get embedded.

Its the clear bra that's on the front of hood , front of fenders , and front bumper. Its an accessory that runs over $300 from dealer. My father's 2015 has it also. The lifting is ever so slight and because the car is super white the dirt line is easily seen.
