babyface did you buy your car used, if so, they my have had some paint or an adhesive sticker in the windsheild that left some residue. Even after cleaning my windows numerous times, I can still see the outline of the window sticker in my rear driver side window, and there is still outlines where they used that wipe off paint shit. It's only really noticeable when the windows fog up or rain. If so, try a little goo gone, on a terry cloth, just a little bit, that helped my sitch quite a bit.

Lil PZEV Do you own a claybar? Buy one and try it, it can't hurt really. Maybe it can pull up whatever it is.

That's very strange, but at least the dealer recognized it, like it's replicable.

ChaoticJello ive cleaned inside and out just as you have told me and yet it still remains. my warrnty is still good. i took to ford and they got the window wet and saw the same as i did they cleaned it and it still remains. they say it could be the clear coat on the window that could have issues but that would cost them to fix it. im still hoping its just a cleaning problem.

any other ideas?

t_bone_c34 ^^ Definitly odd. Try using some Windex with a non-color print newspaper to wipe it with. Newspaper doesnt leave streaks. Make sure you get the inside of the window as well, my windows get like that sometimes.

scrammer uhhhh. maybe the smudge is on inside of the window? lol. wierd dude. try some 3M adhesive remover. you can get it at walmart. if you have some WD-40 just sitting around, try that first. how is your warranty looking?
