Hairline Scratch on Window Tint

Hi everyone,

Hope all is well.

Car wash caused a long horizontal hairline scratch on my front passenger window tint thatís very obvious when light hits it just right.

Unfortunately, nothing I can hold the car wash to. Itís a good shop Iíve used for decades, never had a problem before and likely just a random spec of dirt on the workerís rag; all other windows are fine, thankfully.

Anyway, itís a hairline scratch thatís almost impossible to feel with your nail and Iím wondering if thereís anything I can apply to the window to minimize its visibility.

Thank you.

Yes, call a body shop. There is a special grit sandpaper that will remove the scratch completely.

If that was me and it bothered me (and I am sure it would) , I'd just have the tint removed and redone on that window. It can't cost that much and your tint shop should have a record of what tint they used.
