    Default Fixing window tinting defects

    Hi all,
    I have a couple of window tinting defects . As I don't want to replace the tinting completely
    I am wondering if it is possible to repair them ? Anyone know of special ways to do this ?

    You could try taking a 10ml syringe with a fine needle( 20+G) full of water that has a few drops/cupful of dishwashing detergent in it. Make a hole at the top of the bubble to let the air out, then make a second hole and slowly inject enough 'soapy' water to fill the bubble. Leave it for a few minutes to 'wet' the foil, then make a couple more holes to drain the liquid. Carefully press with a sponge until the foil is back onto the screen, then roll with a small roller (wallpaper roller comes to mind) or similar.
    Top corner of the rear screen sounds like a real fun place to do this sort of work
    If tyou really have creases you will probably never get rid of the crease line.
    Those people that say I know - generally don't.
