scratches in the glass

What is the best way to remove some scratches in a side window on my truck? Any advice will be greatly appreciated. They are not that deep but just really annoying to look at.

there is a glass compound used for scratches. personaly ive never used it but seen our glass guy use it several times and it does work for minor scratches. Ill ask him the name of it next time he is in the shop which is atleast every week.

Seems to me I read where there was a TSB or something regarding scratches? Mine has them on both front windows.

I had scratches show up on my driver's window, took it to the dealer, and they replaced the glass and both door seals- I believe it was covered by a TSB, but my truck is still under warranty. They changed it out no questions asked, which makes me think Ford has got a TSB for it.........

The problem is that its out of the bumper to bumper warrenty and the scratches are from small rocks in mud. So i was trying to fix them myself or at least get less of them.

I used some of my wife's clear nail polish once to fill a few chips in my windshield, then used a razor scraper to plane the polish down to the glass level. It seemed to work pretty well- Not invisible, but way easier and a ton cheaper than fresh glass............
