    Can i remove these?

    I would like to remove these black dots along the side of the window so that i can get the glass tinted without it not sticking. (the dots create an air pocket which prevents the tint sticking properly, can often be seen on rear tints on an astra coupe)

    These are what i mean:

    What are the purpose of these? are they just for show or if i remove them will water be able to seap through?

    As i cant see the point in them in the back windows?

    Thanks for your help.

    No you can't. You just need to clean the glass very well before fitting the tinting film.

    the dots are to protect the sunlight from melting the bonding of the window or windscreen to the car to prevent the window slipping
