Question window question

I just bought 2007 C230 about 2 months ago. The windows were tinted black when I bought the car, the front two windows have vertical scratched lines on the tint film<<<<when you look from inside the car.

I wonder if take my car to the dealer will they replace or fix the tinted windows my car is still under warranty?

If not, does anyone know how to remove the door panels, I heard that most German cars have some plastic inside the door panel that scratches the tint film?

Thanks in advance

I doubt it since your tint job was evidently aftermarket. You might have a chance at replacement if you can figure out where the previous owner had the work done.

On another car I have a vertical scratch on the driver's window, also aftermarket. I went back there and the guy said something inside the door caused that and I was not entitled to a warranty repair.

i see, did you do anything with that or just left it alone? i read somewhre they sell tint protector kit called "moleskin - Tint Protector's MoleSkin Felt Strips" i wonder if anyone had used this it was made to prevent sratches.

but i think you would have to remove door panels to install it.
