here the scoope guys that have some old crapy tint on your back windows with rear defrost and you want to get it off with out using a razor blade and messing up that rear defrost.
Try to get a corner and peel all the old tint off once you get the tint off that nasty little film that is left on the window from the tint. Go out to any hardware store and get your self a can of this stuff called 3m Citrus Base cleaner and one of those little sponges with the scrubby part on the bottom. Once you get the tint off spray the window down and start scrubing it takes a bit to do and the spray is realy stong but it works it will take that sticky fillm off your window with out messing up your rear defrost

Eastiest way is to get a heat gun, wet towel and basically get moisture under it and it peels nicely, but with the film. Nothing Acetone can't clean up then dry and windex or whatever.

BUT, note do not use heat gun on the tint DRY or else it'll slightly crimp up and STICK to the glass even more drying on it or ....getting BAKED on the windshield
