liquid snake 3M makes an adhesive remover that is extremely potent. O'reillys should have some in aerosol or liquid form. It will be with the body shop supplies in a red and white can. I used it to take the residue left from limo tint off some t-tops.

bpawl windex and a razor. no other bull shit urban myth needed.

Unseen I may get a lot of shit for this, but you can use a wet Magic Eraser (melamine sponge) and some elbow grease. That has worked well for me.

1fstcpe i took the tint off of my car cause it was screwed, and i used windex and a scraper like they use for taking inspection/registration stickers off. I bought one at walmart that is about 5 inches wide that was nice cause it takes off more at a time. with the windex, the shit came right off.

They will scratch. If that doesn't work get some 3M trin adhesive remover.

Txstang1 hot water, soap and some "fine" steel wool will do the trick.

avengedgt ammonia and a razor blade, spray it on, drip plastic bag over back seat. spray and let sit for about 15 mins. use a razor blade, then use soapy water and a razor blade after the glue is off to make sure the window is clean, then use windex or a glass cleaner as your final cleaning solution then spray soapy water and lay your new tint. Trust me I knows this from ALOT of experiance. Or just hire me to do it for you.
