Windshield scratches

How do you remove light scratches from the windshield??
I already tried scratch removers for the body but that didn't work....
I can't feel the fine scratches but it's definitely noticeable when the sun shines on it

I heard cerium oxide works but don't know where to find it locally...

When you run your finger nail over the scratch, does your nail catch?

If so, it may be too deep to remove.

You will have to try an abrasive compound with a polisher.

My old windshield had pits, scratches which weren't removable.

Try glass shops like Anvil glass.
