Subject: Re: window tint removal

Re the tint on the rear window (if present): I'd suggest leaving it on! Personally, I *hate* tinted windows. But I've got an '86 9000 with the rear tinted, and it's the only older car I've owned with a 100% functional rear defroster. I think the tint film does a good job of protecting it from damage. IMHO, it's a small price to pay to keep the rear def. working. On the other hand, if you want to remove the film, a razor blade (used VERY carefully to avoid nicking the defroster wires) and a rag moistened with WD-40 to soften the glue, works well. I've heard heat (hair dryer) helps, but never tried it. Eric Law Norman Boyce <> wrote in message news:85banj$amf$ > All factory windows have a slight tint. There is no factory film tint.
