    I wax mine everytime I wax my truck but it doesn't remove the spots. I have even used polishing compound with my DA polisher and it doesn't remove them. I have heard using vinegar and water will remove them but I haven't tried it yet.

    Sounds like different things work for different people. I guess the environmental elements that caused the spots are different as well. People on the coast dealing with salt water, people on city water systems dealing with hard water issues, and those out in the sticks dealing with high iron content or other natural elements.

    I used car wash soap directly on the glass (do not dilute) & lightly rubbed with a clean rag. Afterwards, clean the glass with Windex or choice window cleaner. It was very effective in removing all the water spots.

    Tell me how I gave a bad response! The guy wanted spots off his windows. I had spots, found a product that worked and posted it!

    I just got a new (used) truck and I couldn't tell I had them until we started getting rain... the past few days it has been raining like crazy and I was having a hard time seeing... I cleaned with everything and nothing worked....

    I read on another forum to try Mother’s Mag and Aluminum polish... I picked some up today and it worked! I just put it on and then wiped it off. No more film/water spots.
