    I appear to have a tear on my Model Y rear window tint.

    Isn't window tint normally put on the *INSIDE* of the window? I feel the tint hole on the outside.

    (This is stock Model Y tint.. not aftermarket).

    Anyone else notice this? I assume it will be considered a user problem, not covered by warranty.

    Are you sure it is tint film from factory? From what I know, those are just dark glasses provided some privacy.

    I don’t believe there is actual tint on rear windows. The glass itself is colored

    Yes the tint is on purpose... many CUVs / SUVs provide this feature.

    It’s not tint. It’s colored glass.

    The SC is replacing one of my rear windows because they scratched the glass scraping off the window sticker. It's regular glass on the outside surface.

    I hope that’s the only issue I find with my TMY on Saturday. Will take no time to “fix” with goo gone.

    And you didn't reject the car?

    Do add this to everyone's delivery checklist...

    just peel it off. It looks pretty obvious to me that it comes off. The window certainly has no tinting film on it from the factory.

    That does seem to be the consensus, but I'll let the service center do it.. they should have done it correctly at delivery! (I'm also trying to get the water-in-the-taillight fixed again)

    Update:
    You were correct!

    It looked like a "hole", felt like a "hole", but was a "bump"..... :)

    All better!
