pick at an edge and peel it off, use window cleaner to remove the adhesive left over,can also use eucalyptus oil. are u doing the back window? it will take about an hour to clean the sticky off.

I think I was quoted 50 bucks or something when I last looked into it, reminds me on the to do list still.

Supposedly they use hot steam, although I have a suspicion salt water might be effective to, hehe. :lol:

It can be done with windex... that stuff rips through tint and the glue they use. In all honesty if i had the choice again i'd just pay someone, my mate had someone come out to do his and he steamed it and peeled the entire sheet off with little residue... $50 sounds about right for the rear window
