This depends upon the surface you wish to take the scratches out. On a car you can use a harsh polish or a cutting compound. However treat with care because you can damage your paintwork by being too aggressive in your usage of the compound.
Many panelbeaters use electric buffers to polish out scratches but this needs a gentle hand as you are at risk of damaging your paintwork

How can i remove scratch from the bodyof my car without spending lot of money

providing scratch isnt too deep you can buy a cutting compound from local factors and polish out. If a little too deep for this you can take back with a super fine wet and dry paper of around p1500 grade with plenty of soapy water first and then compound out but be careful not rub through to primer so very much a game of patience and compromise. If scratch is deep follow same instructions but day or so before touch in scratch to fill the scratch with paint and then carefully compound outer excess touchup so you simply leave paint in scratch.

93 Nissan pathfinder center support bearing, 2wd. Is this a press on bearing or is it one that can be done at home?

The older ones were not pressed on, but you will need a good vice, as the locknut is on very tight-145-174 ft. lbs. on my old Datsun truck. I took the drive shaft off and had a shop fit a new one-much easier that way. If you do it, be sure and scratch index marks on the shaft and mating flanges so it goes back on in exactly the same position as removed-the driveshaft is finely balanced and must fit back in the same position as removed.

2002 camaro automatic will not lock into park

It may be out of adjustment. If any work had been done to the steering column, especially if the column were dropped from the dash, it needed to be adjusted. Usually, releasing the lock down where the linkage/cable attaches to transmission, then push the lever to the stop to make sure transmission is fully in park position and reclamp. It is a plastic piece that stradles the outer sheath.

If that does not rememdy it, the spring behind the parking pawl may have broken.

If the scratch isn't in an obvious spot, you also could get touch up paint from duplicolor or the dealer.
Duplicolor has on-line instructions about how to do that and the paint pen is usually under $20.
As i answered before, having it professionally done is very expensive.

Headlight lens are all scracthed how do i replace them

If they are just surface scratches on the plastic lens, you can use any paint scratch removing cream or liquid as directed on the can or bottle. But if the scratches are deep and go beyond the surface there is nothing you can do. Try using acetone for slightly deeper scratches but test it on an obscure spot before trying on the middle. Hope that helps. God bless!

Home repair of scratches on car door

if the scratch is very shallow, you may be able to rub them off using rubbing compound. otherwise, you will have to match the color of the color and use spray paint to fix the scratch. This is assuming that the car does not have a clear coat. if it does, then I recommend you take it to a body shop.
