One of the most important things to be careful about when tinting windows that have defroster lines is when cleaning the glass, it requires a surface free of debris, grime or dust.

He had pulled the tint off, but it left all of the glue. You can use a plastic tarp or heavy-duty garbage bag—think contractor bags—and an old towel to collect overspray. Depending on the manufacturer, all or just the part after the break will no longer work. As for the back window with the rear defrost on it, that was a little more time consuming. Then, wipe away the debris and liquid with newspaper.
