Unhappy peeling clearcoat

Anybody had this problem? clearcoat is peeling in some spots and it looks like a white dry residue where is peeling, is not big spots yet.
I want to know if there is a way to fix this short of going to a paint shop.

Thanks.

Do you wax your car regularly?

If not then this is probably the reason for this happening .

I do wax regular, as a matter of fact, that is when it is more noticeble, when I bought the car I started waxing it on a regular basis then I notice what it looks like the wax building up around where the clearcoat is peeling or cracking.
Honda must be using some crappy clear or the Florida sun kicks ass

is your car have been painted?

asking because I had similar problem. it was peeling off near windshield, near back window and near left side window. I asked few body shops why is it happening and first thing they asked if my car was repainted. when said yes, to fix scratch, they told me it because body that painted your car did not prepare surface near windows for clear coat properly. that is result when shop that trying to get car out very fast and don't do it like should be done. in situation like this clear coat may stay for up to two years but then it will start to peel off. that what happened to my car.

entire panel needs to be recoated to fix it, of cause with proper preparation.

Seal those edges untill you can repair it. If water gets under remaining clear-coat you will have a biger problem. Use some touch up paint to seal edges. Later you can have body shop spot-fill and repaint for less than $100.

The car has not been painted, that I know of, it looks like factory.
The problem is in the top right corner of the rear glass, by the right rear door near the window and right down the middle of the hood.

That might not be clear coat, that might by just calcium deposit that has dried up on your paint. If you park your car outside and let the moisture dry out in the sun, this is often the result as you neglect washing your car.
