    Rear Window - Vaux - Tec

    As alot of you probably know it's being freezing lately, and the other day i noticed something on my rear window, it said Vaux - Tec at the top. I thought it might of been a sticker previously on the car but i have cleaned the window inside and out several times and when it's cold it still appears crystal clear, just wondering if anybody could shed some light on this mystery. I will post a pic when i get chance if it's any help.

    It's not uncommon for glass to be completely clean but still show old stickers in certain weather / humidity conditions.

    I've heard of Vauxtec. A Vauxhall parts supplier I think. So it wouldn't suprise me if it had previously been a sticker.

    Use a bit of Meguiars "bug and tar remover" on the inside where the sticker was and it should remove the remaining glue residue.

    I'd understand if there was some residue left but i have scrubbed these windows and when it's sunny and nice you can't see a thing it's just like a normal clear window, but when it's cold it's a different story.

    I get the same with my rear window. My girlfriend drew a love heart on the inside of the rear window...for unknown reasons. When it's cold, I have to drive around with a love heart on the window.... It's quite embarrassing.
