1: take off the screw behind the door handle insert.
2: remove top screw on back edge of door holding door panel on.
3: remove inside cover for the side mirror.
4: pull the top edge of the door panel back and as your holding it back just pull out the rubber strip that the window rubs on.
5: now just install whatever felt or moleskin you bought onto the rubber strip and reinstall.
I bought some felt that has an adhesive backing down at Michaels. The adhesive backing seems pretty strong. It comes in 9" by 12" sheets and i cut them into strips that are 1/2" by 12". It takes three strips for each side.
I will follow up with pics of the install when I get my car back from tint shop today.

The product used by your installer, was it 3M or some other? That may be the key to this issue, If we all find out what material was used in problem and non problem cars, we might be able to narrow it down.
The film they used is "Llumar". Here's their web site:
I'm not sure which exact film they used, the receipt says "ST30ATW". I think it was the Stealth. It was 30% all the way around, has a lifetime warranty and was 150 bucks. The place that installed it is apparently just in the Dallas area, here's their web site:
I installed the Mole Skin today and took a few pics to compliment some of the instructions given by other members. Here you go:
To loosen the door panel remove the screw on the door handle.
Then loosen the screw on the side of the panel.
Next remove the corner panel, this just pops right out.
Now you can pull the top of the panel towards you to access the plastic window track. Then just pull it off like so
Once you have the track off, apply the moleskin or felt.
Here is the moleskin attached to the plastic track.
As per the moleskin directions I used some steel wool to coarsen the plastic track. I then used some rubbing alcohol to clean the surface and simply applied the moleskin. It was all fairly simple except for getting the door panel back on. It took some muscle to get the edge of the panel back in place but other than that it was a straight forward install.

That moleskin looks alot like the fuzzy side of VELCROS, not the loop side. I say this cause we use alot of velcros where I work and it looks like I might be able to use it. If you are familiar with velcros, would you agree?

Yeah it did look a little like velcro but it wasnâ€™t as fuzzy. I was concerned about using glue that would smear with the heat down hear in Miami. I had heard good things about the moleskin regarding the glue they used and not smearing with the heat. So far no problems.

Great news Mystery! PLEASE keep us updated! I want to redo the fronts, but not if it's actually the glass that's scratched.
I may have the tint remove and check the windows themselves and then take it to the dealer for replacement windows since I've had the felt installed.
Went by the dealership this past Thusday 7/27. Spoke to the same lady as before and she went to get her service manager who politely told me she was incorrect that aftermarket tint is not their problem. If I had them tinted from Ford it would be covered. So, I went back to my tinter and he has already ordered a few moleskin kits and is going to redo my windows under his warranty. I hope to get the retinting done this week. And for anyone ion the Middle TN area, it was Alexander Ford. They will never see my Mustang again, EVER.
