anyway to fix tint on dot matrix?

i bought my car used and it already had window tints on them. there are alot of bubbles on the rear windshhield where the dot matrix are. i've read dozens of threads regarding to this problem. my question; is there a way i can fix it myself or do i have to retint the windshield? honestly, it doesn't bother me that much but i want it done right.

you can try heating it and pressing the tint in but, if it has already dried there is nothing you can do

I haven't ran into this problem before. But me personally, I would just pay the extra money and do it over and not worry.

Remove it and replace it with a strip of black vinyl. When they tinted both our G35 coupe and I35 they put black vinyl on the top so it would not bubble. Plus it blocked out alot of sunlight, even though my I35 has the motorize sunshade in the back.

I agree. On both my G and my Corvette, the dots prevented the tint from sticking, and I know the jobs were done right. Some people have this problem, others don't. It shouldn't cost $25 for your tinter to cut the old tint off and put a strip of vinyl on there.
I've heard of people sanding down the dots but it can't be easier than $25 and vinyl.

IMO, the vinyl option is tacky looking and I would continue to look for a good tinter that can do dot matrix properly like I did.

I had that on my car window but once it was in the sun in just eventually evened out on the top by basically unsticking but it looks even now. Had the same issue on my 03' sedan.

Here is your solution but it only works with fresh tint so u might have to retint and then even it. But try it on your back window anyway u have nothing to loose.

When i got my tint done i hade bunch of uneven patches, so on the 3rd day i took a credit card and put a SOFT wet cotton cloth over it. Then i dragged it (using both hands and applying even pressure) lengthwise across the dot area from the inside of the car. The goal is to use it as a squeegee and even out all the dots and bubbles. Go though it a few times and it should be fine. Mine looks perfect now.
