How To Remove Car Window Tint

Professionals at Tint a Car suggest that you do not DIY, see why.

A good car window tint looks great and helps protect your car from heat, UV rays and break-ins. However, a cheap and poorly applied car window tint can be unsightly and dangerous. Over time, low quality window tint can bubble, streak or fade to blue or purple. This degrades the appearance of your vehicle, and can also make windows difficult to see through. As a result, many people find the need to remove a car window tint at some stage.


There are several methods people try at home to remove car window tints. The most common methods are using chemical substances such as ammonia, heat guns or steamers. Without the proper training and equipment though, it’s likely that you’ll end up with a sticky mess if you attempt to remove car window tint yourself. This could often result in making it even harder to remove car window tint, now that chemical substances have already damaged the tint film layer.
