I have a strange problem with a rear window.
The window looks frosted, I first thought it was dirt inside the double glazing and had maybe delaminated or steam, i removed the bungs and it didn't clear, and today washed the van and the window was absolutely clear when wet but once it dried it was back to the same.
I then rubbed the window in a small area with a polish and again it did the same, you can watch the clear section going cloudy, its that quick.
Could it be that the window is covered in minute scratches?
If so is there anything that will polish them out?
Im fortunate if thats the case as i have an electric buffer that i use sometimes on my old Volvo.
The problem is definitely on the outside because if i treat the inside the same way (i.e. rub the window) nothing changes
All other windows are fine.

Before you try anything so drastic, perhaps a 1st port of call may be Fenwicks windowize (follow instructions) If that fails, brasso, used VERY gently & washed of thoroughly may be pertinent - buffers can be too powerful & you may lose what clarity you have in using one - I am sure Wizard or another more experienced member will be along to advise soon.

Do not touch the window with brasso or t cut they are not fine enough,use auto glyn glass polisher since you have a buffer the job will be made easier,use plenty of water when buffing though i would be very carefull since your buff is electric.
Good news and a little bad!
Decided or should i say my good lady decided it was time to clear the garage out, while doing it I forgot i had a scratch remove kit for my old car (unopened) called quixx, its a 2 part application 1 part very fine cutter much finer than tcut and 1 part polish.
Gave it a try in a small area and got a clean mirror finish so did all the window, so decided to give a polish on the inside section and caught one of the window seal plugs, didn't realise till then they were in 2 parts, the plug bit and the o seal, the o seal dropped on the floor but couldn't find the plug, then i did ahhhhh - it was inside the window - no chance in hell of getting it out so it stays there, however do have a nice clear back window now!
