    Just a question for all the window tint experts out there.

    I need to remove the tint on my side windows of the car, they have been on for 6 years. It looks like it may come of pretty easy, but before I went to town on it, is there any tips or tricks?

    What can I expect?

    Thanks....

    Peel the edge up with razor blade and remove tint. It will probably leave alot of the glue on the window. I use soapy water and spray the glass. keep it really wet and use new razor blades to remove the glue. Make sure to get in the weatherstrip channels. If you don't the glue will dry out again and the window may stick causing damage or make the glass hard to roll up.

    I've been installing 3M tint for over 15 years and it's the way we do it.
    If you use any solvent removers the glue will make a sticky mess.

    Make sure you have a stainless steel razorblade, otherwise the blade will scratch the glass. I prefer new blades.
