Attn anyone with tints

Getting my windows tinted this saturday and im mildly concerned with how the windows crack when you open the doors. I know they tell you not to touch the windows for a few days but the car does it itself. Have any of you had issues with this or is there a way to disable it? Maybe pull a fuse ect?

had my windows tinted, it was not an issue. No need to disable anything. My tint guy said not to worry about it - just avoid general "rolling up down", cleaning on tint side etc. - but that little bit of up/down should not be a problem.

For me it did not create an issue at all.

Thats reassuring. A had a car a few years ago that a stupid friend of mine forgot and put the window down and the whole sheet peeled.

Not that it's needed but no issue on 2 different Mustangs.
However, my 07 scratches the tint. The guy that did it said that it was a gasket that ford uses in the doors and that ford can replace it.
It's not terrible but it's noticeable.

+1 on the window gasket scratching the tint on my '07. Look into it... Ford switched gasket in '08. I switched to the newer inside window seal for like $80, but they have Moleskin you can stick on there. Basically it needs felt instead of just the rubber on the part that touches the tint.

Is the gasket ford used cheaper or did they just not consider window tint? I'm just curious haha

Maybe wait more than just a few days before cleaning(if the tints on the outside) or rolling down the windows...how dark are you gonna get?

Got mine tinted, drove it home, washed it, waxed it and avoided rolling the windows down for a couple days.. Zero problems.

Thanks everyone.... The scratching issue shouldn't be a problem since mine is an '09?

I'm not 100% certain but I think that the 09s would be the same.

Where exactly does the gasket scratch the tint? At the bottom or top edge of the window?

Towards the mirror. I think I have 5-10 scratches from top to bottom of
They vary in length and severity.

Yeah, 3 years later. My tint is starting to peal right by the mirror. It doesn't bother me yet but I imaging I'll take it in later. My dealer warranties there tint for life.
