Why get your headlight tint removed?
After the headlight tint warranty period expires (or if the vehicle was used in extreme weather conditions), the headlight tint needs to be reinstalled. You may also want to remove it in case you bought the car from another state, and the tinting laws are different from where you live. Or you simply don’t like the tint anymore and want to change it. It is highly recommended you go to a professional shop to remove old film in order to protect your headlights from damage.
Headlight tint is a thin film that is made of ceramic or other materials and is added over the headlights for protection. It can also provide better visibility for the fog lights if they are tinted with a yellow film. Headlight tinting should not be confused with “smoking”, which is the process of adding paint on a headlight or spraying it in order to change its color and appearance.
