While it is possible to buff glass the end result is not worth bothering
with. The glass will end up wavy and vision will be very distorted. Best
solution is to have her replace the windshield and demonstrate what it
costs to ignore "small" problems.
You can buff out slight scratches with a felt pad and cerium oxide.
If you stay in one spot it will distort the glass so try to blend it in.I
build custom aquariums for a living and have buffed out several scratches in
I've not tried it for myself, but have heard that Brass-o (or something like
that) will help remove scratches in glass. Don't remove the glass, as a
factory seal is unmatched. Even the glass replacement shops will tell you
There are also companies that do repairs if glass is badly scratched and
you're looking at a fraction of the cost of a new windshield. Not to
mention that they don't need to remove the glass from the vehicle to do it.
Try this and see if there is a store close to your location
My question is:
If it wasn't enough to bother her, or she has shown she is willing to live
with it - why not leave it? AFAIK there are no laws against scratched glass,
just broken. And at least around here, your windshield can be cracked as
long as your wiper doesn't pass over it.
