    If you have your car windows unlawfully obstructed, then yes, an officer can instruct you to remove the unlawful obstructions.

    If the officer looked through the windows of the car from the outside and spotted the beer can, that would almost certainly qualify as spotting the beer can in "plain view". And yes, the officer can look through the windows of your car from a vantage point outside of the car, to see if there is contraband inside.
