If you are still under warranty, they will replace it. You might wanna ask them to pay for your tint too.

As I remember there is a TSB about it....take it in, not sure if they'll pay for your tint, but you'll get new windows.

do you go to villa marin on hylan? they wanted 600$ to replace the glass and 300$ to widen the door tracking... i hate that place, the guy was screwing with my alarm and playing with my switches , bastards.

mr_eh ....i go to the place where i picked my car up East Brunswick Pontiac. i hate villa marin, they were so mean to me when i went looking for a car there. they wanted to sell me a GAGT for $4000 more than what i actually wound up getting it for. they look down on young people too. they didn't take me seriously, oh well, i bought my car through carsdirect.com and am happy i did. then one time in i think july, i didnt feel like traveling to jersey so i tried to make an Appt for maintenence and they said i have to wait until December for service!!!!!

They won't pay for your tint. Aftermarket items are never covered under warranty.

I am getting my tint redone anyway, so I really don't care if they replace my tint or not. Can they just remove the windows (with the tint still on) and give me new windows?

Don't waste your time ripping the tint off, it doesn't matter either way. I had my front two windows replaced (and they didnt' pay for tint), and they are scratched again. I am going to wait til next year probably, and get all four windows replaced (since I also have the extended warranty) and get the tint fully redone, since I'll have to pay for it again...such a pain in the balls...

I am going to the dealership after work on tomorrow...I have the mirror tint that fades to black and after 2 years I am sick of it. I am just going with the regular black tint. So either way I was getting my tint redone....I just hope that the dealer replaces the window (its only my drivers side......I have a 2 door, my passenger side is fine surprisingly) and there will be no more scratches
