Which method do you guys use? I tried using soapy water and knife to scrape blush.gif . I was wondering is there an easier way to do it? I got like 3 sticker, that sucker is hard to remove. The first one take more than 10 mins. icon_question.gif

peel gently from the edge, then it start to tear, start from another corner edge, then they will all converge and can lift out easily..


but in the past, there are some stickers with nasty residuals.. those gooey stuffs imprinted to the windshield tint. dem sucks..

Use minyak kapak to wash off the remaining glue on the screen. 100% works. But you need leave to doors open for like 15 mins for the smell to go off though.

Seriously, this is a major waste of time. Multiply with the number of vehicles out there. You do the maths. How much wasted man hours.

Thank you to the Ministry of Transport (Ling Liong Sik was minister then).

use minyak angin, it can "liquidize" the glue and wipe it off with tisu or clothes. Take time but easier

Notice the orange red road tax sticker will leave permanent mark on the tint. dem sakit hati. Lasttime the purple one was ok. Easy to remove and no mark on tint.

I have tried with Zippo oil. It didn’t really work because the sticker is not paper. I use the Zippo oil to clean up the balance after I finished took out the sticker.

Now slow peel what ever you can... then the rest use the knife to slowly take out then after that use a cloth and wipe it with cutex.

Sounds like you have already removed the decal... anyone, hope the below helps

There are a few ways to remove decals from cars. If not ruining the paint is the key, then I would suggest option 4. If that is not important, a cheap way is to use the hair dryer

1) If on glass, there a razor blade works fine. Be careful to use a razor blade holder to avoid cutting yourself. I would not use a razor blade on paint work as can easily scratch the surface
2) For large jobs, you can use a wonder wheel that is a soft rubber wheel that attaches to a drill and wears away the decal. Best for big jobs. I would use some caution if the paint job is not a factory original (i.e. a re-spray). I sugges to test in a small area first
3) Hair dryer. The cheapest option and best suited for smaller jobs. I found the hair dryer doesn't work as well on old decals as the decal becomes brittle and hard to remove
4) A plastic razor blade. It's a slower way to remove decals, though almost 99% safe in removing decals and not affecting the paint work

To remove an adhesive on the surface, most citrus degreasers work very well or eucalyptus oil

(FYI - to disclose, I have a company www.decalstickerremover.com that only sells products to remove decals so feel free to contact me)

Hope this helps,
Regards,
Peter

prevention better.

instead of sticking the road tax straight onto windscreen try sticking it on a piece of clear plastic. i use those buku latihan wrappers. then i take a clear car sticker n put it behind the road tax to hold it onto the windscreen.

this way i dun have to buy new car sticker every year n removing the road tax is very easy.

use thinner. paint remover. it's acidic enough to remove gum stains WITHOUT any stickiness.

will a small fire leave any scar or damage to the windscreen ? maybe try some petrol and burn it off. for mine, i can remove it pretty easily, perhaps because b4 i stick it, i purposely put alot of my fingerprint or dust on top of the glass, i know it wont fall off and might difficult to remove, if you make it perfect clean, clear and dry when you stick, prepare for the consequences.

Err, ive been using this simple yet efficient cheap way to remove the glue residue. Just take 3 spoon of cooking oil, take a cotton cloth. Soak small part of the cloth and just rub it off. It work like a charm. Been using this method eversince they introduce the new road tax ( sticker type) from the paper type.

Then just use the pther part of the cloth soak with soap water to rinse it, finally use the other part of the cloth to dry it of. And yet u still have another corner of the cloth to dry off ur wet palm.

Yup. I'm doing the same thing. It was my first time changing the road tax sticker, cuz the first time was done by the car tint shop worker. I was afraid that it might be difficult to remove next yr, didn't want to take the risk, I stick my road tax on a transparency then used the car sticker provided by the car tint shop last time to stick it on my windscreen. smile.gif

I had 3 years of partially unpeeled stickers on the windscreen, look very ugly. Then the problem solved itself - the car got stolen .... sad.gifsad.gif
