Depends how big the scratches are.

some will buff out buy using a good car wax and polishing the scratches out. As long as the scrathes have not gone through the paint down to the metal it will work. If you get some "Tar gone" its and abrasive for getting tar off paint that can some times be a little abbrasive and can get the scratch rubbed out prior to going over the top of that area again after with a good high quality car polish (one you apply by hand with a cloth and rub to a shine - not one you tip in a bucket of water and wash the car with).

If the scratches a really large like wide than a human hair, or if the metal is dented, then the buffing is not going to work and if you can't live with it you may want to consider respray via a car body shop. you can do it your self with a spray can but cars today have a clear top coat for a start that will mean respraying your self will look bad and thats if you can even get the color matched exactly, so if its bad and buffing wont work go see a body shop for a quote.

Have to replace the passanger side mirror on 2000 dodge stratus. how do i go about doing this


remove the triangle trim piece on the interior side of door (usually snap on a delicate pry with a flat head screw driver will do the trick)
next remove the (3) 10mm nuts securing the mirror to the door, next unplug the mirror by squeezing the plug connector, pull the mirror of the outside of vehicle. Reverse this order during installation and you should be fine.
Note the mirror may fall and scrath the paint while the nuts are off, keep a hand on the old mirror to prevent from falling during removal

Removing radio from 2008 f250


First you will have to remove the bezel around the radio. This bezel will also be from top to bottom. The bezel is snapped into the vehicle. Pry it out very carfully. Clips will be located at the top, middle, and bottom of bezel. Once snapped out, unplug harnesses so that you can easily work with radio and will help with not scrathing bezel. Once the bezel is out of the way, there will be four screws, 7mm or 9/32 use either socket size, that will be holding radio in place. Remove screws and then pull out radio. Use an aftermarket wire harness to make your installation easier. Install bracket and radio using screws removed and resnap bezel in place.

Chrome scratched by Detailers


I would not recommend trying to polish it. It is "chrome plated" plastic. There is a very thin delicate layer of this chroming on the plastic part. Even gentle polishing, which wouldn't remove all of the scratches, could possibly remove the chrome down to the plastic. I would hold them to the coals and make them buy a new piece. If you are worried about the detailers installing it correctly, insist they pay the dealer to install it.
