    Removing TInt from Rear Window

    I want to take the tint off my rear windshield. I don't want to pull off the defroster element or leave glue residue I can't clean. Has anyone removed rear tint without hurting defroster? Any advice? Thanks.

    I'm having it done tomorrow. The guy I'm using to do it says he's going to steam it and that it's a slow process.

    Thanks, let me know if it came out OK and left your defroster strips. I tried a small home steamer and the film peeled on corner easier but left lots of glue which looks hard to clean off. I stopped.

    Thanks for the tip. I'll try it. I tried a steamer and it left gluey residue.

    I just had it done yesterday. The guy used a heat gun and it peeled as he heated the glass from the outside. The little residue was removed with 000 steel wool. He charged $100 to remove and add new.
