    pretty simple job if you done it before BUT if you have never removed and refitted them before i would suggest NOT tinting them out the car as trying to refit tinted windows is hard enough when you know what ur doing m8

    I removed my old car windows, tinted and reinstalled them and they looked really good, just not sure how the door card comes of the Astra. I have located 4 screws but have no idea how the window handle comes off.
    Cheers
