Removing Window Tint

I've removed all my tint except the back glass. I'm hesitant to do so because of the heated strips. Any tips on how to remove it?

Use a clothes steamer. Works like a charm.

Thanks a lot!

Also, off topic, but I plan on getting my windows re-tinted pretty soon. (Had 5% but it got to the point where I couldn't see) How much should I be looking to spend on all windows except front windshield?

Also, any other better companies than moleskin?

I spent 200 on my sedan. That was in Maryland.

I paid $300 for the high-zoot tint on my coupe. I went 35%.

Removed my back window and brow using a steam cleaner. Great tool to use for removing window tint. Thanks again!

steamer can be a little slow in my opinion, heat gun has worked for me, and be careful if you use a razor blade. Tint typically costs anywhere between $200 and $350.
