Are you planning on contributing anything to the discussions here or are you only going to smart off, criticize, and pretend you are superior?|

We moderators, and a lot of long term active members, point these things out with no malice intended, because this is a tech forum on a hot rodding site and when nobody posts to a thread in 6 1/2 years the chances of the original poster still being interested in an answer to the original question, or even still being an active member of the site are absolutely zero. See this thread as an example: CLICK HERE As a matter of fact, the original poster's (Dougs67camaro) last post was March 26, 2003. That's a little over 8 years ago and he's never been back. Just because the search "removing old window tinting" comes up on the first page of a Google search is irrelevant, there are over a million results for that search.
Why you would consider this an afront to the person who posted 6 1/2 years late is beyond me. If the person who posted (TXregulator) was offended, I apologize to him (or her). You, however, can take your condescending, holier than thou attitude back to "earth" (which turns out to be Florida) and stay there.

Hmm... Do you realize how lucky you are?
The reason this forum gets posts 6 1/2 years after it's creation is due to google.
Are you aware that this post is getting page one status on Google for the search term, "removing old window tinting"?

I found the answer... It's called Fw1 Racing formula (High Performance Cleaning Wax).
I had bought it at a gas station a while back. It works great on the paint. I tried everything I could think of.
Just remove the tint with a razor blade and leave the glue (no worries).
spay on the FW1 and wait 2 minutes. Use a razor blade to remove the glue. You won't need any elbow grease. It cleans the window to a shine as you go. A simple wipe down with a paper towel and you're finished.

Remove Tint Without Chemicals
I ACTUALLY GOT DESPERATE ONE DAY AND USED MY SHARK STEAMER TO LOOSEN THE GLUE - AND PEEL OFF THE TINT - I STILL HAD TO USE ELBOW GREASE WITH A RAG TO GET RESIDUE BUT BETWEEN THAT AND THE OVEN CLEANER SHOULD BE CAKE

removing window tint
Place black plastic on the outside of the doorglass, spray ammonia on the inside of the glass over the tint, take a blow dryer is it's below 85 degrees, and heat up the outside of the glass..start at the corners of the tint and just smush it up to the center of the window and remove the tint..should take most of the glue with it, if not spray with ammonia again and wipe until clean..

|sedan_dad||Finger nail polish remover works good.It's the acetone that does it.You can get a big bottle for a buck.Smells like your kid sisters room for a while.|

denatured alcohol works best!
It's used mostly in printmaking and
great for stuff like this if you can get your
hands on it.

If you have Avon products where you live get some "Skin So Soft". This and a razor scraper will remove
any glue from your windows after you peel the tinted
|01-01-2003 10:54 AM|
I have never used a heat gun to remove tint so I am not sure of those methods. Whenever I remove tint I peel the old tint off, and use an ammonia based cleaner(50/50 mix with water works well). I spray the glue with the mixture and let it set for a few minutes the wipe clean with a towel. Do that twice and then clean with regular glass cleaner and you should be set. If you still have some spots where the glue will not come off use a razor blade and spray and scrape the window...do not scrape a razor across dry glass it will scratch it.
If you read the destructions that come with the tint or on Ammonia-based glass cleaner it will tell you that the 2 do not mix. If you clean window tint with ammonia cleaner it will eat the tint/glue.
Don't make a simple job too difficult...
