If the scratch is not very deep. Super fine automotive sand paper and or rubbing compound may take it out. I’ve never replaced a screen. Maybe one of the guys on modifications can give you some suggestion.

From the picture, it looks like it is just the screen cover that is scratched. If so, the cover is pealed off and the new one put back on. It is just a stick on piece of plastic. If it is the screen you want to replace, it is just a little bit harder. You have to open up the display pod and I believe a few screws are holding in the screen and the ribbon cable slides out of the connector.

Screen cover replaced, very easy to do, just took an exacto knife and lifted one edge till I could get my finger nail under it and just peeled it right off. The replacement screen had a sticky backing and just carefully laid in place. Looks like new.:)

Now that White's had shut down their plants it is good to have some spare parts as you don't know how long they become available in the market...
(btw, I'm NOT interested in selling those parts!)
