    Got it with 4 miles on it and noticed this on my ride home. Had the car cquatrz/detailed and no luck on cleaning it up being it seems to be behind the lens. Anyone seen anything like this? Taking it in next chance I get and asking to get it replaced, hopefully it is a easy fix and won't have to leave the car there..

    I've got a very mall smudge inside my cluster cover. Upper right and not causing me grief but things like that happen on installation sometimes. Dealer should be able to pop the custe off and polish interior of cover with no problem.

    Its bad enough that the ordering process is a a clusterf**k, now we find that the dash cluster is one too.

    If you have a trim tool, the bezel is one piece. Being careful, but with some force, it can be pried out of the clips that hold it into the dash. There is a youtube video by Motorcity Mechanic called 2015 Charger radio removal that shows the process. Then you can clean the backside of the cluster. I would feel better being the one prying on it than someone else! If cleaning doesn't work, then I would take it for replacement.

    looks like a sticker was on it too long and the adhesive remained when it was removed
