    Hi
    As the title says.....any tips on getting the scratch out or will I have to get a new rear window strip? Are they easy to fit and anyone got a rough price
    Thanks

    I had two of mine changed under warranty, and would only recommend having it done at a last reort. The reason I say this is that the trims are so thin it is virtually impossible to install them without leaving marks/ripples in them. I know this because the dealer had 3 attempts at getting it right. After the third attempt they still weren't like factory, but the closet they probably were going to get them so just accepted that they were changed but not to my satisfaction.

    Hope this helps.

    No worries Johny.

    I think I'd settle for a small scratch than a wavy trim. Just one mark rather than 10 marks, LOL even though it is a pain.
