Default How to remove scratches on Window tint

My window tint is showing age and looks almost hazy now with so many scratches. Does anyone know of a cleaning solution to help buff those scratches out?

I have some Meguiar's Mirror Glaze #10 pro plastic polish that works wonders on instrument clusters. taillights, etc, but in the case of window tint, I think you're hooped. This sort of stuff might work, but I think it would likely leave it hazy. Then again, it works nicely on inst. cluster plastic...so try some plastic polish I guess...

Do you have the scratch right on the tint foil?

That's exactly what it seems like. I really don't know how they developed, but I don't think these scratches can form on the glass itself.

I agree with everybody else, you'll never get it looking good again without just replacing it. If I was you I would just find a place to have remove it and have them retint the car. It will look much better than anything else that you can do and probably will not cost more than 100-150 dollars. I ended up having a shop remove the factory tint from my VR4 because it was starting to bubble like what yours is.

You can't fix scratch tint. You will have to remove it.
To save yourself some money you can remove it yourself. Then you will just have to pay to have new tint put on. It almost cost as much to have it removed as it does to have it applyed.
