Dirt and even air on the surface of your car’s glass can cause the tinting film to bubble up. While it will not harm your car directly, it is unpleasant and can be a risky distraction while driving. Once the tint is in place, it seems difficult to remove them, however, it is possible. With a few simple steps, you can remove the pockets of air bubbles in your car window tint.
Material and Tools:
- Hair dryer (optional)
- Spray bottle
- Safety pin
- Firm plastic card (like a shoppers card or credit card)
1.Warm the window tint by moving your car in the sun or by using a hair dryer. The warmth will help to loosen the tint adhesive, making it easier to get rid of the bubbles.
2.Moisten the tinting film spraying water on it. This will prevent the film from ripping when you push the air bubbles out. Do not wet the film; just moisten enough to make the adhesive a little more malleable.
3.Using the safety pin; pop each of the air bubbles. Do not move the pin in any direction, as this may tear the car window tint. If the film has dried, remoisten the tint again as you did before.
4. Take the credit card held at a 45-degree angle. Slide the card over the bubble using medium pressure, continuing until you reach the edge of the film and the bubble is released. Go over the bubbles easy as too much pressure could rip the car window tint.
5.Repeat the same for remaining bubbles. Continue to moist the window with spraying water. Failing to do so could tear the window film.
6.Clean the window with a soft lint-free fabric. Check the film to make sure the bubbles are gone and the tint is intact.
So, now that you know how to get rid of bubbles from window tint easily, you don’t need to go to a tint expert for this treatment, because you can do it on your own.
