Question for those with TINT!

I'm getting my windows tinted next week and something occured to me. Everytime I get a car tinted they say not to roll teh windows down for three days, but on the G6 the windows roll down a half inch every time you open the door. Is there some way to disable this for a while? I imagine it would cause a problem.

I would have the windows checked first before you spend money on tint. I used to work at a dealership and just got my G6 tinted using the same guy the dealer did - he said not to roll down for 1 week, and from I have seen nothing but good work from the guy. Just my 2 cents...

When I open my door it goes down a little bit and then closes again when I shut the door.

Should have clarified, I have a 2007 GT Coupe and I'm talking about the window indexing.

I had my windows tinted at Ziebart on my 06 g6 gtp coupe a couple of weeks ago, and they told me not to roll them down for a week. They said the window going down slightly when opening would not cause a problem, and if so they would correct any problems and gave a 5 year warranty. So, you have no worries as long as they know what they are doing.

Perhaps you could pull the power window fuse. Don't ask me which one it is.

Lightbulb Window Tint

I think the window going down slightly would not cause a problem. Anyway, just to be sure you can always ask the experts I also got my G6 Coupe tinted couple weeks ago, 35% front and back and 30% on the door windows and I never had problems with it. I asked help from www.TintBuyer.com. They provide relevant information about window tints such as its %, quotations, current tint limit every state and will help you find the best professional tinter near your area.
