They will have to remove the rear seat and window decking in order to get the tint all the way down.
My bet is they didn't do that.

Agreed... I pulled my seat/deck to make it easier for the tint guy and ended up saving $20. While it'* not much, I knew the parts were treated nicely when they were removed and installed.

Actually, I didn't have to remove anything when I did my rear window. Just takes a little patience.

I do agree however, that it would be a lot easier if the rear deck lid were removed. When I used to install tint professionally, I would always remove the rear lids and seat back if possible. This makes for a cleaner install.

The rear window needs to be fixed. Any reputable shop will fix it for you. I hope you did not use a discount hack shop when you had the tint applied. I am surprised that they even let it out of the shop looking like that.

it'* supposed to be a reputable shop. The excuse the manager gave me was that the techs tool that he uses to stretch the tint down broke while he was doing it and he didn't have another one, and for to me bring it back up and they would redo it.
