    4 evenly spaced circles on my windshield

    these circles appear to be between the layers of glass,they won't rub off or clean off from inside or outside the truck. Depending on the light and temperature they come and go .Has anybody else seen these things ? I think they might be robot hand prints

    I have the same thing although only 1. I assumed that it was a suction cup mark between the glass and the safety coating. I also think that it was caused by a robot suction cup used during manufacture. The one on my truck is directly in front of the drivers seat in my line of sight just slightly to the left of the drivers centerline. It doesn't bother me enough to complain yet, but come winter when the windows fog I am sure it will bug me more.

    This should be covered under warranty, however glass warranty does have much shorter warranty period than the initial bumper to bumper time frame. So if you want to get it taken care of, don't put it off.

    I've seen that from a suction cup for a phone holder in one of our cars. No matter what I did I couldn't get it cleaned, fortunately it was in the middle. I quit using them after that.

    Those are the suction cup marks from the machine that they use to install the glass at the factory. You can use a clay bar to get them off or some serious glass cleaner.

    Some serious cleaner and some elbow grease. That is all that I can suggest.

    Ford has agreed to replace the windshield under warranty, The dealer tried to remove the circles but couldn't. The 5'' circles are most evident when it's cool outside and I turn on the heater. The windshield warms up and then they dissapear only to return later

    Those are definitely the Robot vacuum cups we use. Interesting that they left marks.
    I work at the Ford Stamping plant., I definitely recognize the prints
