window roller marks

Alright fellas, since I've owned my Skyline, I've always had 2 vertical window roller streaks on both front windows; I notice it much more now that I have my windows tinted; how do I remove these streaks??? Its almost like the glass has been rubbed smooth and the rest of the glass is dirty, but I took some 0000 steel wool to the window, and no change

Is that on the inside or outside?

Put the window down a clean the rollers.

Have you tried car glass cleaner?

They'll be on the inside, since there are two brush things on the inside edge which help the glass push against the outer strip on the top of the door. I expect they've been over tightened, the material be worn flat, or something else has got into them and over time it's marked the glass. Doubt you can get the marks out of the glass again now, unless you can use something to rub into the rest of the glass to match.

ya I've tried glass cleaner and it does nothing; it's almost like the window has been rubbed smooth on that portion and has almost stained the glass; I tried some steel wool but didn't seem to have any effect...

I've got these too, I realise I probably won't get rid of the marks, but how can I fix the issue so they don't get worse? Thanks

A bit of detailing wisdom... - Mitsubishi Lancer Register Forum

Saw this thread over on the mlr, might be worth a try for restoring your glass.

That or some polish with a cutting agent in it. Auto Glym super resin polish is give abrasive or some G3 compound

Seems like a very light scratches. I believe ceriglass can surely remove it.

By the way you will need a leveling disc for the ceriglass restorer.
