Windows Rattle After Tint

As the subject says, my windows now rattle after I had window tint installed. My car has the acoustic comfort package. The tint installed is Llumar Pinnacle ceramic. If I lower the windows slightly, the noises go away.

The car is due for the rear differential service, and I will likely bring it up to the service department. Iím curious if others have had similar issues?

They did not remove anything to tint. It has been chilly here.

It's likely coincidental if it's a rattle .. if the material is rubbing against the Benz window track/socket that is a tint problem

A good tinter today does not remove the window or door trim panel when they apply the tint so I doubt the tint is causing the rattle. Have you gone back to the shop? If it goes away when you slightly lower the window that's a clue but first stop is back to the installer. Now if the deal was the installer that's even easier because it's one stop. However if an outside shop did the tinting then the dealer is going to place the blame on them unfortunately.
