Hi Guys,

I am new to the forum but have owned a couple of Ford Fiesta's in the last 3 years. My current car is a Mk6.5 3dr Fiesta 1.6tdci Zetec Climate with the sports pack, which I absolutely love.

The Dovercourt sticker that is on the back window is peeling away in certain places, and I want to remove it however I am worried that if the tints are stuck on I might pull them away from the glass. I am hoping they are genuine tinted glass but you never know with Fords lol.

Can anyone help?

Cheers

On my Mk 7 Titanium I would say it is proper tinted glass. I am not sure about your version.

Thanks for your help,I would imagine it is proper tinted glass as it is factory fitted. Will just have to give it a go and see what happens.

Defo tinted glass!
I would not be impressed if they gave me film. Not that I got it anyway because I didn't read the brochure properly :D

If it was film you wouldnt be able to read the dovercourt badge very clearly from the outside unless the film had been placed over the top of the dovercourt badge, if this is the case you wouldnt be able to remove the badge without removing the film - hope you know what I mean lol, I have film, looks just as good as the tint as I had it done recently, I have mountune badge on my rear window the film was placed over the top otherwise the mountune logo would not have been visable.
