Uninstalling a dash cam from a tinted window is a challenge, as it can chip off the tint if done incorrectly, depending on the quality of your tint. But don’t worry, as there are tools that can help you do this quickly. Our recommendation is to get tools like the BlackboxMyCar VinylScraper or if not available, dental floss.
If you’re going to use a Vinyl Scraper, gently scrape the area of the attached dash cam until it gets removed. This scraper is designed for removing or mounting dash cams, so it’s less likely to damage your tint.
Alternatively, Dental floss or any other strong, thin wire can be placed between the windshield and adhesive, slowly sawing the tape off the windshield.
Using a heat gun can also prove beneficial here, used on the adhesive to loosen it before detaching it.
After that, you might notice some residue. Peel them off with your scraper and wipe it with a windshield glass cleaner. Some dash cams like Thinkware and VIOFO come with Heat Blocking Films and Static Stickers respectively, which you can mount on the windshield before attaching the dash cam. These add-ons should help move your dash cam from one car to another easily.
