Default Any way to get these marks off my window??

I don't know what caused this, but it looks like a scuff on my back window. I've obviously tried to clean it off when washing the car, but other than that I'm not really sure what I should do, or if I just have to live with it.

It's one of those things that no one else really notices, but I see it every time I look at the damn car.

Can you feel it when you rub your finger over top of it? Doesn't look like a scratch, more like a scuff from something rubber?

weird. yeah can you feel it on the window? if so, try using a clay bar on it if soap doesnt work. ive also heard of people using the cleaner for glass top stoves on their automotive glass with good results.

It has no texture, I can't feel anything but glass when I rub my finger over it.

This is what I was gonna suggest, or you could use a razor blade at an angle

**** I hope not. Tint is a bitch to remove, and I realllly don't want to screw up the defroster. These lines are all over my back window and since my rear window tint is as dark as can be legally put on the car, it really shows up when it's bright outside.

Try using a polisher like you would your paint if it's not a scratch in the glass the abrasives on the polish should take care of it

Put fishing poles or something like that in your back seat lately? Looks like it might be inside.

Hope it's not your tint but don't be disappointed if it is, tint is actually really easy to remove with the proper tools - I just removed 8 year old tint from all 5 windows of an STI using a garment steamer (freestanding type with the hose - $40 at Costco) just work very slow, peel the tint layer partially then the glue layer, work slow and you don't need a blade, just on old hotel room key to scrape and you're good

Good luck!

if you have full coverage break the window.. only loss would be the tint. then apply new tint on new window. no need to remove scratches and worry about the defroster. done.

Clay bars don't really do anything on glass from my experience, but I guess you could try it. Also, you can use (any) glass cleaner and 0000 grade steel wool (finest grade, won't scratch glass, chrome or exhausts but will scratch paint so be careful). You just spray on the glass cleaner and rub the steel wool around, very simple yet effective. It makes the glass really smooth. I'm not sure it will fix what is on your window, but you might as well try it, right?
