    How bad is the scratch, you might be able to polish it out. I would give that a try first.

    sandpaper. You should be able to go pretty coarse say... 600-800 to get the scratch out. Use a block so you don't create a crater. Finish it off and clean it up with 1000 and 2000 wet sand. Haven't done it on taillights but I'm about to do it on my headlights. Might even go as high as 4000 since I have some. Once that far, use a good polish and get everything all cleaned up.

    If you're not comfortable with it, think of it this way: You were going to buy another one anyways. Plastic is a very easy material to work with. If you have an electric buffer, they clean up VERY well with a fine polish after you're done sanding.
