So, I have a rather large scratch on my rear passenger-side door. Like 16 inches! :angryfire: I would like to repair this ASAP. How deep is it if the scratch is all white? I have some clear coat scratch remover, and some turtle wax rubbing compound, but would any of this work?

My advice to you go to professional service. They will evaluate if it repairable or not. otherwise you can make it worst. I paid 50 bucks for 12-15 inches long scratch on rear door. They did good job, it's all gone.

I agree with vad1819, if you want it fixed permanent then have a professional check it out. If you want to do a temporary job, use one of the scratch repair waxes but you will have to reapply periodically.

It sounds like the scratch may be through the color paint layer and into the primer, which means you need professional help as the other posts mentioned.

WHAT EVER YOU DO, DON'T USE RUBBING COMPOUND
This will absolutely make your paint look like crap, I have a friend who removed all the emblems off of his Highlander and then used rubbing compound. Needless to say he has a really shinny Black Highlander with a bunch of FLAT BLACK spots all over it, until he gets a pro to fix it. IMO they shouldn't sell rubbing compound in stores anymore, unless it's a Real Parts Store and it's only kept behind the counter.

I know rubbingcompound is bad but what about polishing compound?
