Unhappy Strange marks on paint, help me pls!

I've got these marks on my door which have proven to be hard to remove.

So I'm hoping someone can help me get rid of them!

Edit: In the pictures you can see the two marks, I've just had my car washed and these two marks won't go away. I also have no clue what they are or how they were caused.

Thanks!

Hello Zeezy and WELCOME to ........ The Forum ........

Well, first, I would wash the door with a liquid dish soap (like Joy) to remove all the old wax.

Then I would clay bar the door.

Then wash again.

Then apply a good wax and see if they disappear.

I've tried to get rid of them with instant detailer using a microfibre cloth, to no avail. I've also tried to use just water, but nothing seems to be working.

Can't say I see it but try a cleaner wax with microfiber pad.

Is that the mark going across above the letterbox ?

You may need to try a soft cut polish preferably with an RO polisher - that could be under the clear coat & if so next to impossible to remove depending on how deep it goes.

Looks like you were a little aggressive in cleaning the edge of the panels. I think I see really light scuffs but it's hard to make out in the pictures. Instant detailer has no correcting ability. I would try a polish first and work your way up to a compound. Don't keep going in an up and down motion when applying polish.

Well, now Zeezy, the "gold class wash" won't take off the old wax ..... which was the objective of the dish soap.

The idea is to take off any old wax, then clay bar the panel to remove any imperfections, then wax to see if the streak went away.

Plan B would be to follow @Joyride86 's suggestion of using a light polishing compound.

Same thing happened to my bumper when I used the pressure washer.. I tried everything it won't come off so best to just ignore it

Looks like scuffing that needs to be polished out.
