    Hi there. i have notice there is a stain on my passenger side window... it looks like some one has poured something out the window wile the car is moving and its splashed down the window.... i have tried glass cleaner but as soon as it dried the stain is back again! sodding hell! its really annoying.


    does any one know what i can use to get the stain off? or of anything harshed or better than glass cleaner?

    it looks like the stain should just wipe off but doesnt. any ideas would be greatly appreciated!

    glass or car polish with a bit of bite, failing that clay should sort it.

    Wouldn't use t-cut personally as it is quite abrasive and may scratch the glass, is the glass tinted?

    forget all that , just use white spirit , u will only need a little bit, dosent matter what it is from hardned bird sh** to sticky toffe apple sauce, tar,

    oh nearly forget if you got cheap stick on tints and the spillage is on the side of the window that the cheap tints are stuck on then best thing is to hope for the best.

    also you shouldnt let any passengers drink while in a ultimate driving machine.

    t-cut wont scratch glass, believe me, from a man in the no. use it, then afterwards clean it off and use a normal car polish to finish it off mate!!
