I was putting my hood on and it slipped and scraped the paint on the dr fender. I think it's only the clear coat but it's a very wide scratch. How hard would this be to make less noticeable?

Can you feel it? Generally, if you can feel the scratch you won't be able to get it removed completely without wet sanding.

Do you have a buffer/dual action? It might take a pretty heavy cutting compound/pads to remove it, or lighten it, you may need to do several steps.

Hard to tell without seeing it in person.

Good luck man.

I can feel it. Damn, I'd have to do more than just the scratched area then huh?

Doesn't look too deep. Watch this video on removing it:

that looks more like a transfer. it doesnt seem to have scratch in much just left a big mark. I feel like you hit it with a good cutting compound and a good cutting pad then a good polish and good polishing pad it should almost blend that away

I agree with this. Certainly should be the first step to attempt to correct.
