Unhappy Windshield Cleaner that Won't Smear

I had my OEM windshield replaced thru my insurance because I had a chip that started to run and couldn't be repaired. Can't seem to get the glass clean w/o it having smear marks/circular pattern. Looks ok during the day, but when night falls it's a would think I had a 5 yr. old clean it with a dirty rag.

Didn't have this problem with the OEM windshield. I do think there's a difference in the quality of the glass.

Any's inside and out. I've used windex, rainex and some environmentally friendly brands...nothing seems to take away the smear effect.

Try a degreaser like dish soap. Does it have a weird gloss feeling to it or anything like that? You might need to use alcohol instead. Also, you can always call the installer and ask what the film is and how to remove it due to glare.

I honk at other Celicas on the road.
