My Mrs windscreen looked similar to this and I tried all sorts including the wire wool and nothing touched it until I tried bar keepers friend. Might be a long shot but could be worth trying for a couple of quid before you go down the insurance route.

Thanks Bailey. I’ll give that a go then, I’d like to get it sorted with ‘detailing know how’ rather than giving up and getting new glass.

Just looking at it online now Bailey, seems to be 3 different versions- Spray, cream or powder...which is best?

Go with the powder, then you can make it up as strong as you need.

If Barkeepers friend or wire wool won't shift it, unfortunately nothing probably will.

BKF is great for stainless, well worth having some on the shelf.

Special thanks to BaileyA3, barkeepers friend shifted it no problem. Got the Misses to pick me some up at The Range today, mixed it into a paste with some water and scrubbed it on the windscreen with a non-scratch washing up pad....bit of elbow grease later and voila, jobs a gooden!
Think they’ve missed a trick with that stuff, they should rebrand it as ‘Wind shield deep cleaner’ and sell it for £19.99 instead of £1.99.

Happy to help mate and glad you got it sorted nice and cheap. Apologies for not replying to your question about which version to go for, only just seen it but I also used the powder.

De-lamination often shows up as an opaque milky film in my experience so I wouldn't think it was that. I'd suggest its the Rain-X; a product I will only use on side and rear windows for the same reasons.

Years ago a colleague used Rain-X and hated the results; it took him ages to get it off and he was using Methylethylketone (MEK) an evil toxic degreaser that usually cuts through anything including your skin and lungs - we used it in engineering in the RAF.

Having said that, some aircraft used bog-standard Rain-X on the windscreens which we reapplied regularly and never caused a problem. I will use it but only on side and rear glass.

The Barkeeper stuff sounds ideal; I'll have to get some myself.
