How to remove window gaskets for tinting without removing entire door panel

Hello everyone, I'm learning to tint and attempting to tint the f30,
as you know the window gasket on these cars is super tight and I am trying to remove it without pulling off the entire door panel, any suggestions?

You don't need to remove it. Cut the tint so that there's about 1/8-3/16 extra at the bottom, then use one credit card to pull the gasket away and another to tuck the tint under it, working across the window. It takes some practice, so perfect the technique with a small piece of tint first.
