How to Remove the 3 Most Difficult Things from Your Auto Glass

Although nuisances on your car glass may have you dying for auto glass replacement in Chicago, don’t give up just yet. Frank’s Auto Glass has a few helpful tips on how to take care of these annoying situations.

Window Tint

Removing window tinting film can seem impossible if you’ve never done it before, but trust us, it’s much easier than it seems. Start by using a hair dryer or heat gun to loosen the adhesive, holding it two inches away from the glass on high heat. Work in sections and lift the edges away from the glass. Once you’re done, use a clean rag and some WD-40 to rub off any extra adhesive. That’s it!


We’ve all put a sticker on our car that we later realized we didn’t want. Most stickers can be easily scraped off after soaking them in soapy water, but some vinyl decals can be stubborn. For these difficult stickers, try the same technique for removal as the window tint. Heat and adhesive remover should do the trick.

Tree Sap

Nothing is more annoying than walking to your car only to find that it’s covered in a layer of tree sap. We recommend using diluted rubbing alcohol for the job, as full strength can damage your paint. Place a rag with a small amount of the diluted rubbing alcohol directly on the tree sap and let it sit for a minute. Next, use the rag to wipe the area, continuing to add more alcohol as it’s needed. When it’s finally all gone, clean up the area using a glass cleaner.

However, if it is time for your next auto glass replacement in Chicago, don’t worry. Contact Frank’s Auto Glass today for quick, professional service.

Couldn't ask for a better establishment! I been driving around with a cracked windshield for longer than I should have. Finally had am off day and dropped them off my car. I was running late to pick up the car and they were very accommodating. Some places would make you wait until next day. Reasonable straightforward prices. They have gained a customer for life.

Frank’s was great. They didn’t have my windshield in stock and had to order one, but they were ready for me the next day. The work was completed very quickly, and the staff were all friendly. The price was fair. Would go back again if necessary!

I have nothing but good things to say about this business. I pray I do not need another one anytime soon but I will definitely refer family and friends for premier services!
