Whats the best product to get window tint glue off?

MS is on a power trip about tint. 35%all around unless its factory, and no windshield strips. Needless to say, i've got to remove 5% tint from 3 of my trucks and 20% from G/F's xterra. What can I get to cut down on elbow grease while removing all of this tint and glue?

Thanks.
Gerald.

soap and water remove the film then soak the window and use a razor knife to clean it

Actually, you can mix white vinegar and water (i think I used a 10 to 1 mix) and a razor blade. Or you can get this stuff called tint-off. They sell it at Wal*Mart for about 5 bucks.

Although the tongue weighs very little, few are able to hold it.

I just use alchohol and it seemed to work the best. Spray the window after you remove the film and let it soak then razor the glue off.

beer is for drinking. rubbing alcohol or even everclear.. stronger the better.. it will eat the adhesive.

pull the window out of the vehicle and smash it on the ground, no more old tint problem and you don't have to worry about getting the old glue off.....

actually i heard that tint-off stuff works pretty good. that's coming from a guy that i work with that installs tint all day every day.

Re: Whats the best product to get window tint glue off?

I used warm, soapy water and it works wonders on the sticky stuff. Just be sure to cover your door with a trash bag or something of the like. Have loads of fun. Good luck.

Re: Whats the best product to get window tint glue off?

what i did is use soap and water like sleeper s10 said but put up a black trash bag bag and let it sit like for half hour in the sun and let it steam up then it should peel off easy. or if you already have the tint off use the same technique.

Aff getting the tint off, to remove the adhesive you can use speedy 500. It's a very good adhesive remover.

windex works just as good as the tint remover spray and at half the cost. Spray it on,let it soak for about 10 sec and scrap it off with a razer... comes off like butter.

The amonia is what cuts the flim, no need for beer or anything

Most places I know only charge like $5 to remove tint. That's about what it'll cost for the products everyone in this thread is mentioning to try.

Those charged with marijuana possession are Worthing High School teacher Sean Thomas, Wheatley High School administrator Gina Thomas and Whittier Elementary School teacher Susan Michael.

So it looks like they're targeting the teachers at schools that begin with "W."

Re: Whats the best product to get window tint glue off?

my buddy just went through this with his integra and the tint shop told him the way to to it is soak the tint with ammonia, then put a plastic bag on the tint and let it dry on there and after 20 minutes or so pull the bag off and it should pull all the tint and glue with it. not sure if the bag thing works though because it was too late to try it but ammonia will do the job.

Re: Whats the best product to get window tint glue off?

Ya don't use windex. Some people are retards. Use any aerosol glass cleaner fortified with ammonia, must have ammonia. Grab a razor blade and steel wool (grade 00) the ammonia will eat away at the glue, scrape it off witht eh balde, then use the wool to clean it up
