HELP!!!

I installed the MMD quarter window louvers on my mustang and the tape seems to be coming off of the louver. They have only been on for about a week and a half and I have no idea whether to retape or try and add glue to the tape.
If I have to retape how do I remove the old tape? Please help

I wouldn't suggest glue- go get sum m3 double sided tape and redo it! Make sure you clean both surfaces with alcohol and that it is dry- my louvers have been on for almost 6 months so far with no problem In rain or snow

If you are sure the tape isn't touching paint then carefully pull it off and use a scaper and some googone- but you don't want to mess up the paint so be easy with it and take your time!

Also, using an adhesive promoter helps a ton. Worked wonders for mine

One trick for removal is to use fishing line. Cut it long enough so that you can slide it into the gap with several inches on each side. Then use a sawing motion from top to bottom, cutting through the tape.

I don't agree on the goo gone. It tarnishes the finish on paint as well as windows

I had to remove a gt500 stripe and some glue was left on my candy apple red gt500 spoiler and goo gone worked great and did not tarnish or haze the finish at all. I can't speak for windows though.

It will tarnish windows. It did mine.

You still need to use a safe cloth or rag that won't harm the surface with goo gone.

As for your glass, you can use alcohol to clean the streaks.

As long as you are not working on the tinted side of glass (assuming the windows are tinted), goo gone will do no damage to glass or painted surfaces.
