Scratched Windscreen

Recommended Posts

Hi

Anyone recommend a procedure to remove a 9" very light scratch to a Yaris T2 windscreen. Think it was caused by a dirty cleaning cloth :angry: , only really notices when driving at night under streetlights .

Thanks

Its a shot in the dark, but have you tried Autoglass?

I had a crack in my windscreen and they sorted that free of charge - although that was through my insurance. (most insurance companies have this included.......)

Hi

If the scratch is out of the drivers line of vision - try brasso - it might just polish out.

and if it is in the line of vision...and noticible..then it will be an MOT failure.

So yeah try autoglass as someone said. Sometimes you'll have an excess on windscreens...usually £50 and it doesn't affect NCB

Thanks for the replies , it is in direct line of sight but very light ie you can only just feel it with a finger nail .

Will try toothpaste !!, if not then someone at work recommended cerium oxide so will try to source that .

dont think that Auto Glym will work. Best glas polish on the market tho!!

RainX did a slightly abrasive cleaner for taking light scratches out. Dont think they do it anymore tho but some places still might have some
