passenger window problem

So I've tried to tint the passenger window of a 2001 tahoe about 5 times now and each time I run into a new problem. I either cut it to short to big or I have trouble getting it into the front and back (tucked in). I've done all the other windows with not to much trouble, but this window seems to be evil and does not want to be tinted. Can I ask for help now!!!

not really, but on a scale from 1 to 10, how difficult is the tahoe window considered?

you can take the windows out..it take me about 2 minutes..take the panel off and roll the window all the way up..there will be two ten mm bolts DCP_0836.jpg..that hold the window in a clamp...loosen them..dont take them out DCP_0837.jpg ..then..roll down the window3/4 of the way down...grab the window friom the top edge of the glass..an lift up on it...tilt the nos of the window down into the door..while lifting the back edge up and out of the window track

this is how I do them...it is really easy once you have done it a few time..and they come out super clean...and a perfect trim around the whole glass

this may be something you may want to try when you come more experienced

line your film up on the bottom edge... cut the front and shift it forward about 1/4 of an inch... set the window with your hard card... cut the back bottom inch-two... only because it shifts out slightly... roll your window down about an inch or two and trim your top and curved edge... install as always...

these are simple...
