As long as the scratches are not too deep you can usually polish them out yourself. The seal windshield polishing kit you can buy. It contain polishes that you will apply using some kind of buffer. You will start with the coarsest one and gradually go finer until there are no marks left.

You will need to buy a windshield repair kit, which can be found at many auto parts stores. You must be careful to follow the directions properly.

You can try buying a fine polishing compound to rub on your windshield. This rubbing compound takes out scratches slowly and makes them nearly invisible.


Answer by  Amber40 (24961)

Well there are places that sell kits to do this yourself. They include all the abrasives and polishes need to remove most light to medium scratches from you windshield. If the scratch catches your fingernail when you run it over then it's too deep to repair. To remove the scratches just apply the polish and buff it as directed.

Use distilled water to clean the windshield. Use a polishing disk on a buffing machine, slowly buffing the scratches until they are repaired.
