    Possible To Remove Scratches in Glass

    I could probable Google this for answers but thought i'd ask hear in case it's happened with anyone else

    Someone in the past has used a really worn wiper on my rear window and caused some bad scratching in certain areas.

    Is it possible to polish these out with some semi abrasive compound and a dremmel with cloth wheel or similar?
    Any other suggestions?

    It's not a big problem but it's triggering my OCD

    Autogly, do glass polish. Maybe worth a try. Heard good things.

    Auto glym glass polish is good stuff for removing light scratches.
    Also Meguiars ultimate compound works just as well.

    These are quite bad to be honest. As if someone's polished the window with sandpaper in one small area.
    I think i have some Auto Glym kicking about for glass so will give that a try

    Finger nail test? If your nail catches in the groves, then it will be a costly replacement rear window.
