Removing old stickers from windows

I want to remove the dealer sticker from the back of my car. It's a "raised" sticker and I tried pulling it off, finding white adhesive lettering underneath, so put it back. Can anyone suggest the correct method for removing them?

Thanks,

Andrew.


Sarge, get a load of my tie.

Re: Removing old stickers from windows

razor blade, scraper held flat to the windshield, warm soapy water or prepsol to remove the residual glue

to remove the residual glue use crunchy peanut butter on a old ragg and it should rub straight off. don't put on glass just apply it to the ragg. it does wonders! (or it could be smooth)

Re: Removing old stickers from windows

Try using a hair drier - it will soften the gum on the back of the sticker. Just start to peel back one corner and blow the hot air under the corner. Maintain tension on the sticker whilst applying the air and it should just pull away.

Was taught this trick years ago by an old panel beater friend, and it worked beautifully. Also works on badges and mouldings that are attached by double-sided tape (heat will damage badges, but better than causing damage to paint by scraping).
