I took the tinting off my side windows due to the rescue dogs scratching it all the heck. now when i roll down the windows it makes a noise comparable to running fingernails down a chock board. Anyone have any ideas how to get the remaining stickiness or make it smooth enough where it doesn't make the noise

Hey Boss, if you do the goo gone thing, make sure you have the door open.
Some of those chemicals are deadlier than you after Taco Bell ! :laugh:

If there is only a little residue left, an auto detailing "Clay bar" works great for super cleaning glass.

Good luck !

Let the car sit outside in direct sunlight, spray goo gone and use a razor blade to crape off the old residue

Spray or generously rub on some WD-40 (being careful only to get it on the glass), then let it sit for and hour or so (with the doors open if you don't love the sexy smell of WD-40). Come back and see if it will wipe off. This works great with sticker residue so I'd guess it'd work with tint too. If it works but doesn't all come off with the first application, reapply and repeat.

Yup. I would just try a razor blade after letting the car sit outside for a few hours, might not even need goo gone

All good ideas.

My first suggestion would’ve been Goo-Gone as well, and Jon beat me too it. At least it has a citrus smell to it rather than WD-40.

It would be easier on a hot day, which sounds like you guys are having a lot of, or help the process with a hairdryer.

Goo-Gone is pretty popular. I’m sure Home Depot carriers it.

I can totally relate on the Fat guys as pups lol. The weather.... not so much. It’s been one of the wettest June’s and July so far. Pretty depressing.

The nice part about WD-40 is that everybody has it, and it smells divine! ;)

I was actually turned on to the WD-40 thing years ago by the guy that calibrated our granite surface plates at work. He has to put on a new calibration sticker every time and WD-40 completely removed the residue. You have to be patient and leave it alone for a while before wiping it down. It will soak in and due to it's lubricity, and being a solvent, will counteract the stickiness of the goo and break down the residue. Like I mentioned above, I've never used it on tint, but it's the first thing I reach for to get rid of stickers.

Better yet. Spray the WD-40 and light it on fire.

That’ll do it.

You need a stream cleaner to blow under the tint as you peel it away. It separates the glue completely from the glass and it comes off with the sheet.

Goo Gone works, but it's going to take you hours per window. Good luck...

lol I guess you all look the same over there at radneso
LOL. Both with the same profile photo, I actually thought it was Jon too. Maybe they could add their name to each photo so they're more discernible :p . On another note, this is why one can't change their profile photo. Nobody recognizes you any more.
