I noticed a few weeks ago that my D/S window has a long scratch on the inside that goes thru the tint. I am pissed because I just paid close to $250 for the tint when I bought the car and now it is scratched. It looks like something on the inside of the door did it, does anyone else have this problem? I knew the newer mustangs have this problem and needed felt along the window molding to stop that from happening, but NOT these. Now I am going to have to get it retinted again :mad: I am just venting right now, but is there someone else that has this same problem that can assist me on what I need to do to prevent this from happening on my new tint I will get installed soon.
Thanks, Chris

The factory glass in my car is the same way. There is something inside the door that is scraping but I can not see anything without taking door panel off.

Well I found out what was causing the problem, to bad its to late now that the damage has been done. The culprit was that the inner rubber strip had rolled over in one spot and had some dust and small grit caught between it and the window causing the debris to scratch the tint. Now when I say inner strip it is the inner strip with the felt once you take the door panel off. Hope this helps anyone with similar problems. The first pic is where it is rolled over and the 2nd one is what it is sopossed to look like. http://i93.photobucket.com/albums/l65/lightning_015/smilies%20and%20funny%20pics/beer.gif I just noticed also that my fingers still had ink all over them from work (just got off) http://i93.photobucket.com/albums/l65/lightning_015/smilies%20and%20funny%20pics/embaress.gif
