Will removing a bad tint job damage my rear defrost lines? Recently decided to finally remove the film I have on my windows due to poor quality (they didn’t last long)


Usually, no, but if the defrost lines were originally in bad condition then there is a risk...

Test on a small area, and perhaps gently warm the tint film as it is removed.

  • Would a hair dryer work for that or would you need a heat gun @SolarMike? – GdD Jan 8 '19 at 9:05

    @GdG For that a hair dryer on low would be sufficient - heat guns are more powerful, but only need to gently warm... – Solar Mike Jan 8 '19 at 9:09
  • The car is basically new so I don’t believe the lines are in bad shape I’m going to get them professionally taken off and redone at a different location. My own fault for going quantity over quality – Jav_3 Jan 8 '19 at 13:07
