HELP! Won't come off

I'm not sure if it is brake fluid or a different type of fluid but after getting the bike worked on at the shop. When I went to go pick it up I noticed that my tech had some kind of hazing on it and looking cloudy. Tried wiping it off and I'm having no luck with it.

I did have my brake fluid flush so maybe they got brake fluid on it. But anybody have any ideas on how I can get this off.
Here are some pics

Thanks in advance also I didn't know where to post this so posted in general, please move admin if it's wrong section

Of course they said they don't know. If they would say what it really was that makes it their fault. Good luck with cleaning it.

Looks like they used brake fluid cleaner or some sort of cleaner not good for plastic, I doubt this is brake fluid.....you will have to spill a lot for brake fluid for that type of haze, also they drain at the brakes not near the reservoir (they fill at the reservoir, if it spilled there than it would have damaged more things there like the paint or the windscreen) Looks like some abrasive cleaner was used during cleaning, try plastic polish or else you will have to live with it or go back to the shop and complain.

It's not coming off. The plastic has been damaged. The shop needs to make good on it.

I have had good luck with Meguiars PlastX on clear plastic bits in the past. I have used it on headlights and even used it to polish out scratches on DVDs. I have a foam ball attachment for a drill to speed things up.

Polish it off like you would with a headlight. If you need to go really abrasive, 3000 or 5000 grit sand paper. Then use Meguiars headlight polishing kit with plastx like Bryguy said. Most everything stains the plastic. It's quite annoying but it's easy enough to clean up.
