Not really.  It is a constant problem with GTs.  Caused, I think, by grit,
not anything in the body.  Most people finally have to buy new glass
although others might have super compound for polishing it out.
Fortunately, unlike a windscreen,  the distortion which polishing usually
causes is not a problem on a side window.
