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. If it’s factory tinting, it’s forever.
