Steamer. Really. Works very well.

Second choice is wet windows and cover with plastic - like the kind you get from clothes cleaners. You can add a couple of drops of soap, to make it wet better. Let sit in the hot sun.

Re: Removing the privacy film on cabin windows

remove film slowly from top edge then slowly drip "goo gone" between film and glass, allowing it to soak in; work down from top to bottom. Slowly.

Removing the privacy film on cabin windows

If it's the film on the outside of the large windows in the heads, it's not a film. I removed mine quite easily with acetone. Lagoon says "solvent".

I replaced ours with laser cut film supplied by a sign writer. Ours is now horizontal stripes, rather than the dots on the original. Looks good, and does the job. Easily replaced if subject to further wear and tear.

PS Just realized the topic is cabin windows. Tried to delete my post but it doesn't seem possible?

Casablanca,

Report this post or yours by clicking on the triangle in the lower left corner, and ask the mods to delete both.
