I have had good luck removing scratches in clearcoat by wetsanding with 2000 grit VERY CAREFULLY, followed by using rubbing compound, then polishing compound, then waxing. If 2000 scares you, try 3000 grit wetsanding. While sanding will dull the surface, the rubbing/polishing compounds will bring back the shine. If your fear factor is high, just try rubbing compound, then polishing compound. Try the technique on an area you can afford to mess up.
If the scratch is deep, you will not be able to get rid of it without damaging the basecoat. But you can minimize the visual effect so it won't be so obnoxious.
