There are a few reasons why you may want to remove the tint from your car or truck. If you have had your tint a long time, maybe you are tired of it. Maybe the tint is peeling off along the edges or maybe your tint is too dark to be considered legal. It is best to take your car to a professional to remove the tint. It will not be cheap. It is no different than when you hire a roofing specialist to work on your home; if you want to ensure it’s done correctly, you may want to call in a professional.
The price could range from $50 to $100. It is said that removing the tint is difficult to do without scratching your windows. Just by knowing what materials to use you could save yourself some money and remove it yourself if you have the time and patience.
The process of removing the tint is easy if you have a single edge razor, a spray cleaner and a clean soft cloth. There are other solvents that might work and are easy on the window and your paint job. Start the removal by grasping a corner of the film using the razor. It should not be difficult particularly if it is already peeling. Keep in mind this is not paint you are removing. It is a thin film attached to the windows.
Once you get a grip on the film, you can pull it off to a point. Once the film is out, spray the cleaner on the glass and let it sit for a few minutes, then go back and remove more of the film. Spray again and use the razor to clear off any firm residue or glue. Once it is all clear, clean the glass with your rag.
If you feel this is not something you are willing to do or you are afraid you may scratch your windows, you should check with the shop that put the tint on or other maintenance shops that offer this type service. Just keep in mind, you can spend your time or pay someone else for their time to remove window tint.
