    Are the scratches in the same place as before or different spots? Did you replace the window stabilizers?

    windows scratching

    thank you everyone for all the help. No I did not replace the window stabalizers just the strip /guide on top of each door which was like $120 back in the day and the scratches are on the outside but I did notice one little circle rip in the tint about the size of a nail head on the inside? Any idea what these scratches on my outside glass are from? Should I change these stabalizers ?.thank you so very much guys..........just one more week and she'll be put away for winter
