I used a gel air freshener in my car and plastic is damaged; gel DID not drip on plastic but air freshener flowing in the air caused this. Has anyone else had this problem?

Answers from the Automotive Experts

Geralynn Kottschade, Vice President at Jerry's Body Shop Inc. I have only seen when the gel has dripped onto the plastic, sorry. Geri Kottschade

Jennifer  Justice- Haley, Body Shop Owner/Operator at Co-Owner of Elite Collision Service, Inc I would contact the manufacturer of the gel air freshener and advise them of the problem. Also check with the Acura dealer to ask their opinion on any damage caused.

Jamey Wozniak, Owner and CEO at Joe's Hitch, Trailer & Truck Accessories How do you know for sure that the air flowing in the air caused this? Spoke with some people and they are puzzled. How did the plastic get damaged? But then again.....anything these days is possible................
