      Need advice about how to repair scratched rear glass as a result of vandalism. It is definitely noticeable and pretty bad. Can it be repaired with a glass polish or is there any other means of repair? Do I need to replace it? Any advice will be appreciated.

      Cerrium Oxide works. Google for video examples.
      You'll also find many other products for different types of window damage.
      The original Dub and Dubber.

      Try the diamond polishing pads. I used them on ceramic and marble which is similar in hardness to glass. Use them wet and work slowly. There are a variety of grades...start with course 600 then go to 2000-3000.

      I also have a rear glass for an 84 GTI or rabbit. looks good except for small scratch...your for $10 + shipping.

      If you can feel with your fingernail,the scratch is too deep to do anything about it.
