Probably a silly question, but, is there any product out there that will remove scratches from glass, windscreen and passenger door.

If not any ideas how much to replace on a 2001 gtv 2.0

Depending on the depth of the scratches, apparently toothpaste is very good, being a very gentle abrasive.

Try calling Autoglass. No, I don't work for them, but you might be able to get some sort of repair done free on your insurance.

I've got scratches on mine in sweeps from the blades, think the previous owner lived near the sea in Ireland.

I'm waiting for the chips to become cracks so I can claim on me insurance for new one :)

Have you tried any of the commercial Glass polishes (as available in Halfrauds)?

Success/performance will obviously depend on the depth of the scratch being treated, but one day I intend to try this myself on my wiper scratches!

In the past I have used Solvol Autobright to remove scratches from glass. However, the best compound for polishing glass is cerium oxide. Try googling on "polishing glass" to find procedures and sources.

I use Autoglym glass polish. It works fine on very small scratches. :cool:

Cerium oxide...i work in a glass factory and this is what is used to buff scratches out of glass.....it all depends on how deep the scratch is though...fine scratches not a problem, big scratches though, go to breakers yard and get some more windows...:)

Try jewellers' rouge. Cerium oxide has probably replaced it in modern times!
Also try some of the classic car sites as with older cars getting new, or even second-hand, can be a problem so polishing is the only course of action for them.
