    removing window tint

    The truck has had 4 owners. I know the original owner, but sometime after he traded it someone added tinted headlight buckets with the white LED type lights. I hate them even looking out the windshield. I am going to order new buckets and the regular factory type lights. That may even help...

    removing window tint

    NickD, after seeing that photo, I'm convinced the windows are factory stock. AND, thanks for that site. I never heard of it. Heck, for under $100 for a pair, it would be much easier just to order them than screw around trying to find out if my tint can be removed

    removing window tint

    Mine are as clean and smooth as you can get. that's why I suspect spray on, or factory impregnated. I'm going to try to track down the previous owner and see if he can shed some light on the issue. Damn, I hate to think I have to replace all the glass, although I would be happy just changing...

    removing window tint

    You guys have some great stuff, but most of your suggestions are for the "film". I am pretty sure mine is spray on. NickD, unfortunately mine is four door and it's on the rear slider too. Just wondering, does the factory ever use glass with the tint "impregnated" into the glass? ( meaning...

    NickD, was your a film kind of a "sheet or decal type, or was yours spray on?

    removing window tint

    Will try the lighter fluid thing first. Once I wipe the fluid on, how long until I try to scrape off the tint? Also, that video is good, but it seems to imply he's removing a "decal" type tint, rather than spray on. One other dumb question: is the tint on the inside or outside of the glass?

    removing window tint

    general question: I bought a used truck with tinted windows. I hate them. My mechanic said there is something that can be sprayed on that will remove the tint,, but he didn't know the name of it. I asked at my local Auto Zone, and the guy there had no idea. I asked at my local Advance Auto...

    '03 chevy Impala headlight plug corrosion

    Oh, and by the way, I'm glad I can be a small part in helping you maintain a straight life, by relying on you for help from time to time, nickb2. NICKD, I'm only a couple years behind you, and have two blown shoulders, one which will possibly have to be replaced this year, an injured wrist that...

    '03 chevy Impala headlight plug corrosion

    Well, since this headlight bucket is the one I had previously asked about condensation in, and it still gets it, even after I drilled a couple small "weep holes", and the CLR seems to be doing the trick, I'm going to wait until warmer weather and go to our local "U-pull-it" salvage yard, and...

    Does this mean I have to put my sledge hammer, and crow bar, away?

    '03 chevy Impala headlight plug corrosion

    Nick, I just read the CLR bottle too, and it also says do not use on brass. Those pins and "sockets" in the plugs are brass. What would you use to push those pins out? I thought they had a little "barb" to hold them in the plug.

    '03 chevy Impala headlight plug corrosion

    Would the contact cleaner be found in an auto store or hardware store? When I worked in the defense industry, we had a spray that would turn the nastiest corroded brass into a shiny show piece, but I can't remember the name of it. I also thought of that stuff they used to advertise on TV...

    '03 chevy Impala headlight plug corrosion

    My "high beam out" indicator is on. I pulled the plug on the headlight unit and there's some of that green corrosion found on brass, on both halves of the plug. I put some baking soda and water on it like used to clean battery terminals, and it seemed to work for a couple days, but now the...

    Chevy Impala, check engine light on

    Well, the damn thing came back on, and this time, dry gas and trying a reset by removing the + battery terminal didn't reset the computer. Car still starts easy, runs smooth at all rpm's, and makes no unusual noises under the hood. It goes back to my mechanic sometime in Feb. I'm hoping he...
