Removing Window Tint

So I have to remove the window tint off two of my cars cause their start to bubble up. I have to take the tint off my rear windows that both have defrosters. So does anyone know the best way to take the tinting off?

I took a hairdryer and a razor and just scraped it off. I scraped off the defrosters in the back, but I don't really need em so I guess its no biggie.

You might want to stay away from the Midwest (mostly Chicago) between the months of November-March.

i did this to the supra a few weeks ago and to the tiburon. i just took a spraying bottle (an empty Fantastic one actually), filled it up with dishwasher soap and plenty of water, and just kept it heavily wet while scraping it off.


i only had to scrape for around 5 minutes before everything was wet enough and i had taken a piece big enough that i could grab with my hands and pull the whole thing off in one shot.


if i get a webcam, ill even do a small picture tutorial with the windshield (only tint that i have left).
