Scratched drivers/passenger glass!!!

I have been noticing long scratches, thought it was the tint.A friend with a body shop looked at it, an looks like there is/was sand in the felt gasket that seals the inner door parts. Anyone had this problem before????

Yep!!!

It sucks really bad when you have tinted windows...

imagine going mudding and some passenger opens the window with a bunch of dirt, sand, mud on the window... NOT GOOD

New seals and new glass... You can roll your windows down all the way, grab the seal and pull up it will pop off the panel then you can wash the crud off of it. It wont turn back damage done but it sure slows it down. I have done this to mine and it seems to have helped.

Same here but only on the passenger window, and it moves really, really slow. Think i might need a new window motor. I will probably repack it first to see if that cures it.

Well that and the tint should be on the INSIDE and the scratches are on the OUTSIDE! I am considering looking into polishing the glass to eliminate the smaller scratches. I like in a dusty, dry, sandy area, cleaning the widows when fueling is and running my fingers across the felt to flip the sand out are about the only help.

People get YELLED at in my truck for even thinking about lowering the windows when they are covered with mud!

Well aware that the glass is scratched on the outside. My tint is 5 years old and has some faint lines and shrinking..new tint for $50.00 and cleaning of felt with work for now..need a cts and programmer first...new glass won't make it go faster!!! Lol
