Removing Window Tint

Whats the best way to go about it?

I've already had a go with a razor blade and heat gun, just wondering if there's a better (more easier) way??

Re: Removing Window Tint

yeah, go to a window tinting place and pay them to do it. will cost you about $100, less if you get them to retint your car.

thats what im doing because stripping tint is a deadset prick of a job and there is a good chance you will damage your rear window demister if you use a razor.

Re: Removing Window Tint

The heat gun and razor was working, but its just so frustrating lol. The tint does peel off but sometimes it doesnt peel off together. I guess I'll keep at it tomorrow

Re: Removing Window Tint

the proper way to get the tint off is with a steamer. A heat gun should work too but it depends how old and flaky the tint is. Then to remove the glue put adhesive remover in a spray bottle and spray your windows. Wait a few mins and scrape the glue off with a scraper. DONT scrape the rear window though!!! Or it will stuff up your rear demister. Use steel wool on the rear window to get the glue off.
