Remove window tinting

I recently bought a 2003 Honda Odyssey. I am not accustomed to the window tinting and would like to remove it. Is this possible?

Is this “factory” window tinting, or is it aftermarket window tinting?

VCDdriver’s question is a good one. A factory tinted window is actually in the glass and cannot be removed. An add-on window tint film can be, usually with a razor blade scraper. The best way to tell the difference is look at the window edges. An add-on window film will have a small gap at the seal where it was trimmed. Factory tinted glass has no trim edge.

If it’s aftermarket tinting, here’s how to remove it. http://www.wikihow.com/Remove-Window-Tint. If it’s factory tinting, it’s forever.
