Tint Removal
by Aaron Rountree


Tools: Ammonia
or ammonia product (Windex), scrubbing pad, razor blade, black trash bag and
paper towels.


Step 1: To
remove old tint from side windows use your razor blade to peel up a corner
and then pull the tint off. For the rear window with defroster spray the window
with ammonia generously then stick the trash bag on it letting it sit in the
sun to soften the adhesive. You may be able to pull the tint right off to
begin with but be careful not to damage the defroster. DO NOT SCRAPE WITH


Step 2: To
remove the left over adhesive on the side windows scrape as much off as possible
with the razor to minimize the mess later on. Spray ammonia on the windows
generously to start softening up the adhesive.


Scrub the windows with
a soft pad, keep the window wet with ammonia. As you remove from sections wipe
off loose adhesive with paper towels.


The side windows should be much
less messy than the rear window if you’ve scraped as much adhesive off beforehand.


Finished: Keep
scrubbing and wiping excess off until you have a clean window.
