Many window tints have a metallic coating & that will limit the AM reception OF all cars that use the rear window for the AM antenna.
The W210 & later cars require special window sealant when installing the rear glass(broken) & it must be heated. IF any other glass sealant is used the AM reception is cut by 50% to 75%.

Have the people that tinted the window use a non-metallic tint on the rear glass.
