window scratchs

On my WK the driver side rear window is getting scratched all up. It sounds like there is rocks in there but it is scratching in many places. I have never seen a vehicle do it this bad before, it looks awful. How can I clean this out to prevent it from getting worse? I dont think i can do anything about my window already being wrecked though right?

I got sand stuck in mine and it did a number on the window. All you can really do is clean the felt wipers really well. Just roll your window down all the way and inspect the felt for trapped debris and give it a good cleaning.

I'd assume you can pull the interior paneling off the door to expose the innards of the door to clean out debris that is causing the scratches.

The only thing that contacts the glass is the wipe at the top. You can pull the whole thing off to really scrub it if you want. I had tiny grains of sand stuck in mine from a little kid who decided to throw a fistful at the window. It took a couple of cleanings before I got it all out.

As far as repairing the scratches- a general rule is if you can feel the scratch with a finger nail (Gets hung-up when you scrape across the scratch) then it can't be buffed out.

Good point.

Okay i will try to clean it out. Does the wipe just pop out when the window is down? Hopefully i can buff out some of the scratches, what would be the best product to use for that?

I roll the windows all the way down, then wedge a clean rag or old washcloth 1-2 inches down in between the glass and the felt. Then pull the rag horizontal to clean the felts. Works for awhile.

I have some scratches on my windshield that I treated with RainX glass wax. It helped significantly. The scratches are still there, but much less noticeable.
