Recently bought a brand new forester xt and placed iottie cellphone holder on the dashboard(rubbery soft touch material,vinyl) for 2 days and i got a doughnut shape indentation and dark shiny stain.
So far I have tried multi purpose stain cleaner,Ice interior cleaner and protectant, lots of wet tissues, car compound(tiny amount), and magic eraser. And none of them really worked...
Looks like the indentation is not too bad but the dark shiny stain is still there and really noticeable. Strong glue from the suction cup got soaked into the dashboard I think.
Some people tried WD40, olive oil, hair dryer or heat gun.
One of the most popular car detail shop in my area doesn't repair this kind of damage.
Has anybody have any success to restore this kind of damage (stain)?
Or is there any dashboard accessories that I can just cover up the damaged area and forget about it?
Attached picture is not mine but looks almost identical.
