Best solvent to remove car window tint glue!

Anyone a pro at this?

Tried turps and a citrus based solvent thats supposed to do wonders. I am have all the tint off and the rear demister still works. The tint has been there for about 20 years and the windows are foggy, blurry and have a brownish orange tinge.

I should add i think they put the tint over the top of the factory tinting, so i dont really want to use razor blades as the factory tint appears fine.

What do i need to get them clean? Im about to try a credit card as im told that can help.

What do you think? Got any mad glue disolvers? The glass doesnt even feel sticky! its a real prick.

Acetone is good for some adhesives. If you know the type of adhesive the spec sheet will have the solvents.

what you want is to put your car in the shade, get an ammonia based cleaner, get a few chux and cover the tint with chux soaked in the solvent/cleaner, and let it sit for 20 or 30 minutes.

dont underestimate the job, its an absolute s*** of a job

Factory tint isn't an overlay is it? I thought the tint was in the glass itself. If that's the case then a razor blade would do the trick. You can get special ones from bunnings, a lot bigger than a standard razor. Even with the ease of a razor it's a c*** of a job.

im starting to think maybe it was half the tint i took off, leaving one half the tint (delaminate?) instead of leaving just the glue. Im going to try with the razor tomorrow. Either the tint comes off or my wrists do

Read my posts in your own thread, I told you what to use to get the glue off. Just don't get it on the door trims.

just a slight cutting compound will do the trick sleepy
then follow up with a polish

sometimes you can get a mild-cut&polish as one product

Usually factory tint is just a fancy marketing term for the dealership installing tint before you drive away with the car.

No, factory tint is usually the govt mandated 'colouration' of the glass that provides an SPF15+ protection from the sun
