G'day

The EL just decided it didnt like its tint on the inside of the drivers window, so as I was winding the window down the tint caught on the door and scrunched up and made a mess and yea.

Now, im going to have to go get the tint redone. How can a i adjust the window so it doesnt rub against the door? My freshly detinted window has pretty rub marks all over it. Window ops is a little slowish, but pretty good

Firstly, I wouldn't put the window down again.


Seondly, is it covered under any warranty? When I got mine done it came with a ifetime warranty.

Factory tint is in the glass. If its a film peeling off it is aftermarket.


A good tint shop will continue the bottom edge of the film down into the door, so there is no edge to catch on.
