I've had a EX-L Navi for a couple of weeks and just noticed a very light (not deep) surface scratch, an abrasion really, on my right rear window by the third row of seats. Generally, I know that there really isn't much you can do for these sorts of things but swap out the glass, but I am hoping that I don' have to go that far.

I was wondering if the group has any recommendations of products I could try to diminish/polish it out. The scratch is not deep at all...literally it looks like a scuff on the finish on the glass. Kind of a shame...scratch on the glass after 2 weeks and I haven't even taken it off road yet.


thanks,

I would talk with a local automotive glass shop. They may be able to help you.

I while back I read that something called Jeweler's Rouge was good for polishing small scratches out of glass. I recall it was suggested for removing the sandblasted appearance your windshield can develop over time.

Not sure where you'd get it, though.

Scratches in glass can be fixed

I had scratches in my Acura windshield from something that got under the wipers. The Acura dealer had a glass repair guy come out and he buffed it out....perfect work.

My dealer friend has all kinds of tricks for fixing up used cars touchup.

Monday---the dent master walks the lot and fixes little dents
Tuesday---the airbrush guy comes out and fixes scratches and also touches up black stuff like wiper blades
Wed-- uppolstry guy fixes carpet burns, and dies stains
Thurs---the glass guy fixes cracks with liquid injections.
Etc.

He pays each of these guys up to 500 per visit depending on #cars.

How Can I Remove Light Scratches In The Glass?

Home remedy: Rub a little toothpaste into the scratch. (Normally geltype pastes are not as effective as regular pastes.) Polish with a soft cloth. Or, Dry Mustard and Vinegar. Mix 1 part dry mustard and 1 part white vinegar into a paste. Apply paste to the scratch. Polish with a soft cloth.

Also, you can try using brass or silver cleaner.
