1.Get Hammer.
2.Break glass.
3.Buy new glass.
4.Insert new glass.

(seriously this may be the only way i think. You cant really just peel tint off without ruining the glass)

u can easily just take a razor blade and scrape off the film on the windows.. but be careful with the rear window.. bc if u touch one of the defroster lines.. then your defroster wont work anymore!!

You can do it with a razor blade but from what I saw this guy did it and his windows always looked a little hazy. If you take it to a pro tint shop they can do it right. Or do what I did and start loving the tinted windows. Mine are so dark they are not legal in this state and no one can tell who is in the car. It is kind of nice sometimes.

Any solution with ammonium removes tint if I remember right. Thats why you have to be careful with some cleaning supplies. If you use a window cleaner with ammonium in it, it will cause the tint to shrivel up and peel off.

Yes, that's why you don't use windex when you got tint in your windows.

Chlorox, Muratic Acid, Lead acid (siphen soem out of your battery) Sulfuric acid works too, and a little elbow greese.
If you wanna do it in a jiffy or completely forget about the car use sime lysergic acid...

DAMMIT!!!! you guys are retarded!!!
i had to do this cuz of a fixit ticket i got. HERES HOW THE TINT SHOPS DO IT.....


get a flat edged razor blade.
(buy a scraper holder for it or ur gonna kill ur fingers. I PROMISE!!)
USE WARM SOAPY WATER!!!! THAT IS ALL!!!! to lube up the window and keep it wet.
scrape off the tint from the edges.
KEEP THE BLADE FLAT AND THE WINDOW WET OR U WILL SCRATCH THE GLASS.
have fun....its very time consuming and boring.


i dont know about the rear window with the defrost lines....so i cant help u there. but thats the best way to remove the side window tint.
