i beleive a solution of water and ammonia will remove the tint. just spray/wipe it on and it will start to loosen the adhesive and let you take it off.

Ok, I'll test it out on one of my door windows to see if the glue gives away. Thanks.

err...i'd be a lot more careful when removing rear tint...if you just take it off like you do the other parts of your tint, you will mess your defroster up

i think it's worth it to just have the people at a shop take it off...but that's me

all i can say is don't go by using a razor to take it off. i tried it and it took me forever. best thing to just take it to a shop and have it done unless the ammonia thing works.

Yea, I went to the shop and they said that they are not responsible if the defroster does rip off. With that being said, you basically going on a no guarantee basis. I think I would be more careful than an employee who is not liable for damaging the defroster. Although I do have another option, I want to make my tints 20% b/c 35% really doesnt do much.

There's really nothing wrong with the rear tint as far a bubbles and peeling is concerned, would it be a better choice to have them just retint over the existing tint??

I have used windex and a bare razor blade to do this on several cars (CHP in Cal are a bunch of ******) and have never damaged anything.
