I Leatherique the interior once a year whether it needs it or not.... This year I noticed after the bake in the sun and the cleaning cycle I was left with discoloration on the passenger window switch. This has never happened before, and aside from a microfiber cloth and some water I haven't tried anything else to remove or repair it for fear it would get worse...
I usually try to wipe anything off the plastics but I must have missed this one as it's the only switch with the problem....

Any ideas?? Ever happen to you?? Appreciate any suggestions provided!

Haven't had that happen to me but it's been a while since I've used leatherique, and when I was using it, I only allowed my seats to bake in the sun, not the entire car. I had the seats removed since I was doing work on the interior running wires for a stereo install.

I suggest not doing the sun bake on the entire interior.

Have you tried the pristine clean that they sell as well to wipe it down? it will probably come off just need some good interior cleaner.

I did try the pristine clean, I am not sure if it's discoloration or the rejuvinator on there, but I didn't want to try anything else until I asked around...

Leathique, Rej or pristine will not do that to plastic. That is from worn plastic combined with an aggressive cleaner. The leatherique probably bonded with the oils from a previous product and lifted them out when you wiped it down with pristine. Just buy a new piece imo, they are super cheap from volvopartscounter. I replaced both of my switch covers on my last order.
