I'd take it to a detailing place myself and ask them to remove it if you haven't done that kind of thing yet yourself. They would probably only charge a nominal fee if the scratch isn't that bad.
Most of the car washes I have been to, have a sign as you enter the washing area saying the they are not responsible for damage to the antenna, but I have never seen anything about damage caused by the employees of the car wash, but I bet they do have something but don't post it in the open.I'm sure the carwash has something written saying they're not responsible for damage, even that.
My dad uses "rubbing compound", as it gets out fine stratches, then puts a coat of wax over it. It seems to work pretty well.what is the best way to remove it?
If you are going to tackle this yourself, make sure the scratch did not cut through to the paint. If it is clear coat only, I would use a swirl remover which is not as course as compound and will remove less of the clear coat and provide a better shine (just be areful not to rub through to the paint)Bono said:Beter than Expected! After I got my daughters magnifying glass and inspected the scratch, it appears to be a scuff make. I can get this out on my own. I will still go to the car wash and "JamUp" the manager.
It's hard to "bond" with your car when it is below freezing out...lmp180psu said:I go to those self serve car wash places where they have the wand of water, soap etc. I never use the brush with the soap in it because of the built up dirt, and hard bristles. I do use it for the wheels though. It does take energy to wash your own car, but you have an appreciation for having/taking care of a new car, and you "bond" with your car as well
