    Can anyone recommend a glass scratch remover/polish, I've had a scratch on the screen since I've had the car from where the previous owner had knackered blades, as it's not in my view I've not bother about it, but it's annoying me now.

    AutoGlym Fast Glass has been mentioned previously here before and there is also AutoGlym Glass Polish.

    I've not used either myself but I think AutoGlym Glass Polish would give you a bit more cutting.

    ^^ What was the verdict? I like the AutoGlym glass polish (apart from all the dust!) but wouldn't have thought it had enough "cut" to remove anything but the lightest scratches. Was it any good?

    Unfortunately I'm in the middle of my work shift at the moment so it'll probably be next week before I can report back.

    Incidentally, I had the same issue on my '03 with the wiper blade flinging off on the motorway (don't ask me how or why) and scratching the glass. I use Fast Glass all the time, but that, dedicated glass sealant and everything else I tried wouldn't get rid of it. To be honest, I couldn't see it during the day but at night it was annoying as hell.

    If your windshield excess is £75 and it's doesn't affect your no claims... :Whistle:

    I bought that compound paste online, can't remember the name off the top of my head, and used my buffer pad attachment on the cordless on my Accord. Took a good fifteen minutes before i saw very small results so ii can't imagine how long it would take by hand!

    Right, just tried Autoglym glass polish and.......

    Nothing, if anything it may be slightly worse, I think DD's plan sounds good.

    Did you do it by hand?

    Yeah, don't own any polishing kit, may work using proper equipment.

    Definitely, need to use a drill on low speed and water on the windscreen to keep the temp down. Can't imagine it would be possible by hand! Lol
