    Side Windows all you need is a razor blade and adhesive remover they sell one made for tint. Back window is hard because of the defroster lines. My tint guy just peeled the film and used a steamer to get the glue off. do the fronts to save a buck takes 15 min or less depending on age of tint and let the pro 's do the hatch unless you have a steamer.

    i did it with a razor & dish washing liquid on my first T/A,i pulled the tint off easy after cutting the edges with the blade,then i just used the razor & dish washing liquid to get the glue off,the glue comes off real easy once its wet,i didn't touch the hatch window because of the defrost,for some reason the previous owner had mirror tint on the doors & limo tint on the rear hatch,that seemed rather odd to me,so i knew immediatly i had to get the mirror tint off but as long as you don't mess with the hatch glass Its a little time consuming,but easy,it'll also save you a few bucks if you take the tint off yourself

    I've used carb/intake cleaner to remove old dried on tint glue, and a lot of elbow grease with a soft non abrasive scotchbrite type pad. Was considering brake cleaner but on the drfroster lines I was worried it would eat away at them, Figured carb/intake cleaner was a little more mild.
