    What should I use to remove glue adhesive?

    My mate removed his tinted window film of his car but it has left glue adhesive behind on the windows.

    Just wanted to know what products are available as it's really difficult to take adhesive glue off windows .

    Cheers guys,

    heat... heat gun or good hair dryer... be carefull not to burn the paint. It can be quite time consuming.. but if all else fails, use a little meths. but again be carefull not to damage the paint, and dont forget to clean afterwards with some warm soapy water & then wax the area

    Try lighter fluid, if that works go to a camping shop and get some "Coleman White Gas" - it almost pure naphta and will work out better and cheaper

    Should have removed it with a heat gun / hair dryer in the first place, then he wouldn't have that problem... but as above all good ways to remove it from glass, i think meths, or like geoff said the lighter fluid.....
