Window tint removal

On my 06 Mustang I need to remove the tint on the rear window, it deteriorated so bad I can barely see out the window. It scrapes off easily but because of the extreme angle of the glass and the defrost grid using a razor scrapper will be a real bi*ch.
Is there any type of solution on the market that will loosen up/release 13 year old baked on tint?

thanks

Steam works really well and any glue left behind can be cleaned up with an ammonia based window cleaner and a sharp razor blade.

When I was fourteen years old, I was amazed at how unintelligent my father was. By the time I turned twenty-one, I was astounded at how much he had learned in the last seven years

Here, give the techniques in this video a try. Caution: Using heat may be risky due to the size of the rear window.

I used a straight razor blade and was able to peel little pieces at a time. I used the wife's finger nail polish remover to help with residue.

I'll give the heat and steam a try. The extreme angle of the back window along with the crampness of the back seat area is going to be a bi*ch. Thanks for the ideas!

I tried the heat today and the thing is the tint is so deteriorated that it just turns to dust when you touch it with a razor blade, I might try a Scotch Brite pad and see if I can just rub it off
