One of my windshield wiper blades popped out of the clips at the end of the wiper arm. I heard the scratching sound and pulled off the road and reinserted it. The wiper only made a couple of passes before I fixed it, but left a nice scratch in the windeshield.
Is there any product out there that I can use to buff this scratch away without causing further damage?
You may be able to take it out with one of the polishing kits depending on the depth of the scratch. You do have to be careful because a little too much heat from friction and your windshield will distort. Follow the directions carefully and to the T. You can order it from Eastwood or JC Whitney to name a couple of sources.
Steel wool, really? I need to do this to my '69 Sed Dev as well, someone let the blades wear down so much that the metal bracket scratches the windshield probably havent been replaced since '69. theres a nice scratched area on that windshield. Do you need to polish the windshield after using the steel wool?:coolgleam
Steel wool sounds scary on glass. I would try practicing on my neighbor's windshield first before I tried it on my own. I would stick with the special windshield polishing compound. I used it on a Vette I once owned and it worked great.
