Looks like the mark goes across two sheets of veneer which is a shame. IMO, the only way to get that back to how it was is to have those two sheets professionally replaced and refinished to match the surrounding grain and color. If it was a case that the windscreen washer liquid had just removed the finish it could have been repaired, but the bigger problem is that the veneer has blown and I think anything you do in terms of a repair will be noticeable.

I was going to suggest a sanding and finish the one half of the table, but I’m afraid it will be noticeable like Andy said.
Matching veneer will be a chore if you can do it all.

good luck!.............Jim
