heat gun + plastic razor/ i guess u could use a real razor if u trust yourself + goo gone + alot of time. if u do the back window i caution you to use the plastic razor, it worked great for me. also if u get it heated enough you might be able to pull it off depending how well its on their.

I posted the answer to this a while back on a different thread...but here it is again
I did this on a ford probe with 17 year old factory tint and it worked like a charm.
You'll need
1. A squirt bottle with a mixture of 50% water and 50% ammonia
2. Large Black trash bags
3. A sunny day
4. Razorblades
5. Scissors
6. Patience

You need to cut the trash bag so that it overlaps the window by about 2 inches on all sides. Starting at the bottom and working your way up, spray the window with the mixture and apply the trash bag to the window, almost like you're tinting it with the trash bag. Use lots of the mixture. When the entire trash bag is sticking to the window via the ammonia/water, let it sit in the sun for 45 minutes to an hour. Take the trash bag off, and starting from the top gently pull the tint. Use your razorblades to aid in any areas where the tint isn't completely free. This method works very well. In some cases you can peel off the entire piece of tint. Good luck on the rear window, and don't ruin your defrosters by scraping them with the razor.

I think there is a write up in the DIY section
