    noticed today after all the snow and ice melted off my car that there are scratches caused by the ice scrapper all over the windows and glass. Is there a way to repair it or can the SC fix it?

    I wonder if the "toothpaste buffing" trick will work here.

    I don't think the glass is scratched, it looks like the tint is. I don't know why the tint would be applied on the outside, is that standard. I did find a tint pen on Amazon. Will try it and let everyone know. I'm also going to call the service center to see if there's a way they can fix it. This is a problem for those living up north and having to scrap their car of snow. smh.

    Finally got this in the mail from Amazon. It took 10 minutes to buff out the scratches. I'm sure it will work with deeper ones as well. Used a cordless drill but I think microfiber will work just as fine. It's a small kit but I didn't need much of it to remove all of it. Hope it helps.
