    Dealership stickers

    I got a horrible looking white dealership sticker of Pinnacle Vauxhall, Luton etc on the rear window of my car. Its stuck on with that glue stuff and i have no idea how to remove it. I would like to be sticker free but i just cannot get rid of it. What sort of materials could i use to get the blimmin thing off without damage or the glue stuff sticking to the window after removal to reveal that lovely gloopy rectangle? Any suggestions would be great

    lol it should be ok if you dont go pooring it all over the car...
    Just put it on a rag and then wipe over it a few times...
    Might need a bit of a working over though to get it all off and nice and clean though

    Right, i need to make a check list of all the little things i need:
    1. Carb cleaner.
    2. Motor oil.
    3. Screen wash.
    4. Car polish.
    5. T-cut.
    and now 6. White spirit.

    Hmmm... wonder how much that lot will cost. Enough

    take off the sticker, and remove as much glue as you can with a damp cloth. Then use meths on another cloth... wont damage the glass and will take the glue right off. Worked every time with me. But remember to use some glass cleaner/pollish afterwards

    I just thought of something actually. The sticker is over the rear heater lines. White spirit wouldnt do anything to them would it?

    Easy way is to lift one corner (carefuly), and then get a paintbrush and some meths and contiunally wipe the shear line as you pull the sticker off.

    It should come off easily and without too much drama/residue

    its never done anything in the years ive used that method. providing you dont rub too hard on the heater lines, and thay are not damaged already.

    But meths works allot better than white spirit

    If it's on the heater lines then you need to soften the adhesive as/before you lift to minimise any potential damage- not afterwards.

    Meths is the solvent you need tho
