Best bet is ask the places who put that stuff on.


Side note on using one edge razor blades on ANYTHING but a windshield? Why - the side glass is tempered glass will scratch easily vs other types. Use water on area and razor while wet minimizes that.


Get what's called an inspection sticker remover, one edge blade holder AND as for "HYDE" brand blades! IDK why, they are just tons better by that name brand can still find them - assorted use of course this just careful with rubber edges on this vehicle stuff is HARD to replace if you mess it up,

Either lacquer thinner or alcohol will take the glue off. Be careful with the thinner on the door panel.
Use a razor blade to get all the film off first.

I removed mine relatively easily with a steamer. Any household steamer works. Lift up a small edge of the tint and apply steam to the underside with the adhesive. Comes off easily. You might have remaining adhesive on the window. Use any adhesive remover chemical (like GooGone) and a razor blade.

Although your advice is solid, this thread is 7 months old so please try to stay away from older threads.
