window tint

The person I bought my civic from left some sort of stickiness to the back window. I assumed it was the glue from a previous tint job. I tried windexing and it wouldnt come off. I then tried goo be gone, and a little spot came off, but I gave up becasue it just would take too long. Is there anywhere that can remove it for me? I want to get the windows tinted, but cant until i remove this gunk.

Autoglym Tar and Adhesive remover and some plastic razor blades will take care of it easily. Its a messy job, but it'll work.

you cant use a razor on the back window because of the defroster lines.

the only thing i can remember that larry did was use a strong solution of ammonia (what windex is made from, but a hella lot stronger) let it soak, and scrape off with a plastic scraper and rubb off with ur hands basically.

hrawaaahhhhhh??!?? lol

Wiping with paint thinner, or acetone will dissolve any adhesive off the glass, but be VERY careful not to get any on your plastics, it will discolour it and destroy it
