    confused Removal/re-fit rear window vectra c?

    I have recently purchased pre cut window tint film from eBay. To get the best results possible and work on the windows in the garage, i just want to know is it easy to take out and re-fit the rear windows?

    Dont know about the doors but the rear one/ boot lid one is bonded and will need a specialist. Think costs £60 to remove and £60 to refit - personally take it to a professional tinter as they would charge about £180.

    Going to give the rear / boot lid a go myself whilst it is in situ, as the film comes in three seperate pieces. Should be easy to put each sheet where it needs to go and push the air bubbles out. May be easier to take the whole boot off rather than just the glass??

    The problem i can see with the side windows is that the film will crease as i attempt to open and close the window, as it is being fitted as stated to do in the instructions. I can also see problems with getting the film behind the seals as there is a lot of excess (but fits the glass correctly).

    I wouldnt know m8, but it is something the professionals get wrong occassionally and I dont imagine its terribly straight forward but Good Luck for giving it a shot.

    Cheers, will give it a go by taking the windows out. really dont want it looking like a cheap and nasty job being as the tint film is good quality. The rear windows are not electric so how hard can it be to get the glass out and re-fit them?? hmmm??

    Why not just take the boot lid off complete?
