    i heard that putting a trashbag over ammonia soaked windows and letting it sit will take the tint off

    there is some stuff you could try called "goof off", it's in a yellow can and it will take asphalt sealer off a white truck and not mess up the clear coat, it's at wal-mart and other places and maybe worth a shot.

    try using a hairdryer to heat the tint up. ayou can use a razor, just dont scrape like your taking off dealer stickers, or one of those trooper ticket sticker things they put on your window. hehehe.

    the trash bag is exactly how you remove the old tint.
    spray window down with a 1/2 mix of household ammonia (one part ammonia to 2 parts water) take trash bag and place it over window, kinda squeegie in in there, should stick to the glass. leave car out in the sun for about an hour. old tint should pretty much fall off.
    to remove remaining glue, spray window down with ammonia soloution, and use a plastic pot scrubber scrub with a side to side motion on the defroster grid, till you get all the glue off.
    i used to work in a tint shop and thats the best way to remove film.

    Nice, you should have made your own thread and called it a write-up though.

    carb clean and a rag will take the glue off. Worked wonders for me.
