Not realizing that the windshield cleaner fluid is near empty I wiped the windshield with few drops of fluid, as the windshield was dirty, the wiper wiped the dry dust against the windshield and that left the windshield with few minor scratches along the wiper path. Although the scratches are not that visible enough, in night it causes distractions. Already replaced the wipers as they were near the end of their life. I have polishing compound to polish clear-coat damage, can I use this to remove the scratches or by any other method?

    It's pretty unlikely that dust from the wipers scratched the glass, have you tried cleaning it thoroughly with a glass cleaner and non-abrasive cloth?

  • yes have tried those, I think the wiper was dying so it could have happened before and I might have noticed that on that day as I don't often drive at night

  • Some light scratches can be buffed out. Just like your paint. For example

  • @Granny the video you provided shows use of specialized tools and glass buffing pads which I don't have access to
