Removing Stickers?!

I just bought an 09 V6 about a month ago. The guy that owned it before me had "Stage 3 Motorsports" stickers on the back window. Not sure if I like them there so I'm just going to take them off. Any ideas on how to remove these stickers without damaging the glass or leaving any glue residue? One of my buddies suggested using a blade and Wd40 but I wanted to check in with other Mustang owners first.Thanks, any advice is appreciated.

When I bought my Jeep it had horrible graphics down both sides. Spent about three hours with a hair dryer and some Goo Gone. A heat gun would be much better.

The best, and hardest part is being patient. If you go slow the adhesive will be easier to get off.

Good luck!

Just use a razor blade.

On glass I use a razor blade. Took many stickers off my 04. Just use caution with it and should be no problem. Goo gone works great for the left over glue.

Razor blade and windex. Chemicals in the windex literally eat the adhesive. I used to do graphics for a living.

On that thought I have a 2000 with the dealer stickers on the trunk lid. How can I get those off without damaging my paint and also I remember my dad always telling me to leave those on because the paint around them will be faded. So if you take them off you will have a nice pretty dealer logo in your paint... Any thoughts? Maybe get them off then buff the area/whole car?

If they've been on their for 11 years, he's probably right. Are they the metallic looking ones that are raised, or like the ones on the other glass?

They aren't anything special they're kinda like the ones you see on parents cars with the foot ball and their kids name under it. But instead of being on the glass they put it right on my paint! The edges are already starting to come up. I guess it would still be less noticeable if it's just green. I may see if she wants to take them off and cover it up with a longhorns badge or maybe a browning or bone collector badge or sticker

Any opinions on WD40 on the paint? Shouldn't hurt it right? I have plenty of that available I would have to go buy goo gone...

If it's vinyl then a heat gun will get it off the paint. Just don't leave it on there too long. If you just put something over it, the graphic will bubble and peel over time. Best bet is heat gun. We used to do entire body wraps and that's how we got old vinyl off of the paint before applying our graphics.

I have used goo gone or mayonnaise on the sticker that was on the paint. Takes longer than using a heat gun or hair dryer but it does work.

Just spray a little goo gone then spray some more when there is some left over adhesive and use a hot rag apply a bit of pressure and it will come off very easy and fast. Not throwing out any insults but I wouldn't use a razor blade because you could possibly scratch your glass
