Window streaks on my new Jeep

Hey guys!

Just picked up my new 2013 cherokee on Tuesday. It was pretty clean, but I did notice the windshield being dirty. I didn't think much about it and thought I would clean it later...

Well today I cleaned my car and I couldn't get the windshield clean then I started looking on the outside and found these streaks on a couple windows.

I tried 3 different window cleaners, alcohol, vinegar, clay bar, kaboom cleaner and nothing helped it.

Has anyone else had this?

I attached a picture.

Thanks

Re: Window streaks on my new Jeep

Just watched the video from the RV Geeks. Did he really wet the rag (old t-shirt) while the rag was on the driveway. ?!?! I wonder if there is a second video for polishing out the scratches caused by the sand and grit he just rubbed into the glass…..

Re: Window streaks on my new Jeep

Although it's not sold as a cleaner, I have found Rain-X cleans glass, and some other things, quite well.

Re: Window streaks on my new Jeep

I tried those steel wool pads and it worked great. I only did it in a small area so far just cause of time.

Thanks for the ideas!

Re: Window streaks on my new Jeep

Some have mentioned that using Rain-X will make the auto-wipers misbehave. Any thoughts??

Re: Window streaks on my new Jeep

I've been using it on my current and previous 5 cars with no problems. You do have to apply it and then wipe off the haze completely.

Re: Window streaks on my new Jeep

Use 0000 Steel Wool (whatever the finest grade available is)...that is an old detailer trick for removing water spots from hard water or harsh sun.

Re: Window streaks on my new Jeep

I used the steel wool on my jeep as the video I found in the detail forum suggested and it worked great! Also this video shows how to apply Rain X and remove with a damp cloth so it doesn't leave a haze and this method is so much easier.

Re: Window streaks on my new Jeep

Ive been using the rain-x aerosol cleaner and repellant and its worked very well. Clean and repell in one application. Can lasts quite awhile too. Ive actually just sprayed it on while its raining and just left it and the next time it rained the water beaded right up. Might try the additive next time.

This could be a lamination issue. All windows on wk2 are 2 layer with a laminate in the middle........
