    hello!
    I am going to tint all my side windows, front and rear..
    Is there any guide on how to take out all the windows with regulators?

    have removed the door panels, the airbags, the sound-barrier?( don't know the english name :P) and loosen the window from the frame..
    But now i can't figure out how to get the window out. I have figured out that i have to remove some seals, but don't wanna brake anything :P

    Have somebody done this on an E46 sedan before?

    (Sorry for my bad english!!)
    Regards

    I thought the tinting of the windows was done in situe

    Be a shame to spend so much time and effort on tinting and then damage the tint on the refit

    everyone i have asked here in norway, says it's the best if you remove the windows..

    But asked on E46fanatics.com, and they called me an idiot :P haha!

    Maybe we just do this in norway? :P

    You don't need to remove the windows you just make sure you leave an extra half inch say to tuck in at the bottom to hide the fitment, and make sure you leave a few ml at the very top of the window when fitting so that the tint doesn't peel when you wind the windows up
