If factory fitted it won't be a film you can remove. Hope this helps.

If its not factory fitted DONT try to remove it as the heated rear window elements are "printed" on the inside of the glass and peeling the tint will probably damage the elements even peel them off :cry::cry::cry::cry:

Good point, always paranoid when removing dealer stickers etc which have gone over the elements :(

me too, hate the "DIXONS AUTO CENTRE" & "CAR OF THE YEAR 2004" stickers in the rear window but heater is working fully and they cover the bottom 3 elements, not worth the risk of trying to remove. it if bothers you that much OP then get a hammer smash the glass and pay the £80 glass excess - ooops did i just say that ? thats naughty :devil: not a good idea (n)(n)

I'd try drying the glue out of the sticker first

To see if it saves damaging the elements

But tints is a kettle of fish i'd leave alone

Always could get a matching colour donor boot lid without tinted glass :)

easy way to find out if its aftermarket tint,
take 3rd brake light off its aftermarket film you will see the edge of the tint ,
