Well in the sunset you can see these whit streaks that got all the way up the rear hatch window and it basically covers the entire hatch. Has anyone had this problem or have any idea how to fix it? thanks alot. -Matt

Re: White Streaks on glass that wont come off?

Try to take some brake Cleaner to it. It should cut right through it. It seems that its old glue and may still be on there. I removed the tint on my rear hatch about 3 weeks ago and there was glue everywhere and a friend of mine let me in on a hint how to remove the glue(he used to work at a tint shop). Which was the brake cleaner. Cut Straight through it when sprayed on and taken off with a rag. Go get a can of it from walmart-autozone-etc. Try that first I think its only 1-2$ a can it works Really well. Surprised the hell out of me.

hey guys, so far i have tried rubbing alcohol and nothing. Didn't even put a dent in it. I still have the other ideas everyone gave me but i just havn't had the time to check. Im not sure if ammonia would work or not.
