    Anyone any ideas what on earth that is, I cannot get any access to it, and not enough purchase to put any product on it.

    Tips/solutions, most welcome.

    Apologies for crappy photos

    Is that inside the rear window?

    I'd try using a tar removed, something like Autoglym's stuff would probably do it. Could be tricky accessing it from inside though.

    As for what it actually is, well who knows what dodgy goings on take place in your car. Put a UV light on it and see if it glows! hahahah ;)

    Possible residue from removing old window tinting film :confused:

    The inside of the rear screen on the CLS is a pig to get at, but it can be done if you kneel on the rear seats and put the headrests down.

    Use decent window cleaner (Mr Muscle) as you want to spend as little time in the Utthita Parsvakonasana yoga position as possible, go on have a look - you know you want to.

    Yes, back window. It's almost like it's some kind of sealant residue. But the window looks as if it's the original.

    Has me baffled.

    And I hope it isn't the outcome from some al fresco lovemaking :-/

    Aha! That's exactly what it is. Good thinking.

    I can't get my hand in there, I need something to spray on that'll just melt it.

    Steam?

    Autoglym Bug & Tar remover will melt glue like that. That stuff will dissolve residue from stickers or number plates pads. :)

    After a hour of using the AUTO GLYM bug spray, several microfibres, a window squeegee/fish slice/spatula, and Mrs Mark giving directions, the glue is 95% off, I'd have to be Mr Fantastic from the Fantastic 4 to reach the rest.

    Another job ticked off.
