As I was on the motorway today, I heard a bang. It's that type of noise you know something just bounced off the windscreen. As a result I now have three little scratch type marks just above your field of vision as your driving. Does anyone know how you can make them appear less of a mark or remove? The wipers seem to pass over them ok but they are gonna annoy the [email protected]£t outta me? Is there a polish you can get for it?

Give Autoglass or another repairer a call and they'll fix it up.

CarPro Ceriglass may improve it. Suppose it depends how deep the scratch is. Not sure a windscreen company will do anything unless it has cracked etc

They'll repair chips and if it's big enough to annoy I would have thought it big enough to repair?

Autoglass can only repair chips, not scratches.

Any chip that's smaller than a £1 coin.
I didn't know there was much difference to the repair method for a chip or a scratch on glass as long as they were both small.

Edit: To be fair, on their website they do offer advice on scratches so can't hurt to give them a call as it's not going to cost anything.

Resin gets injected into the chip, but with a scratch there's not really anywhere for it to go.

Wifey was in charge of glass repair side of things for a year with autoglass, don't think I didn't ask about repairing scratches constantly got shot down in flames:facepalm:.

Interesting, I figured that it was "covered" and then polished down which would remove an apparent scratch - then again I have no idea as the only two involvements I've had with windscreen repair was once where an entire windscreen smashed and fell apart whilst driving, and another where a huge crack appeared after an impact.

Probably suck air through their teeth and tell you that a new screen is needed!:D

Mmmm it's not a chip it is scratches about three. I did try taking photos to show but they don't show the marks. I will call auto glass and see what they say though. I'm sure I seem on here somewhere that you can get a polish that can take the worst of the scratch away. Not so sure now. 😳

Autoglass used to use jewellers rouge to try and "repair" scratches, but it distorted the glass so they put a stop to it.

Could try some of the stuff Shaun recommend, I've no experience or knowledge of it so couldn't really advise on it.
