Post Decals on Visors

Anyone have a trick to removing the decals on the visor? I tried heat but does not work.

This is a link to a thread that has info about removing the decals. I have a TJ and just flipped my visors, but I'm not sure if you can do that with the JKs. Anyway check it out and I hope it helps answer your question.

Gotta add those to my list. (Geez, this Jeep is getting kind of expensive . . . .)

Doesn't look like that OP comes around much, but I bet Don from Pixel Decals could make those.

Leave them exposed to the sun for an hour and they should just peel off.

It's easy on pre-2010 models. After that, they are impossible to remove. Some people have flipped them so you don't look at the decals.

I just bought a couple of inexpensive black CD holders at Wal-mart and they covered the stickers right up. Also, the stickers will still be there when I go to trade the Jeep in a few years and look like brand new. Total cost was less than five bucks.

Thanks for the responses, they are tough to get off, but I have been picking at them and the are slowly disappearing an 1/8th of an inch at a time :-(

isn't that like removing the tag off a matress that says "DO NOT REMOVE THIS TAG"

I wonder if WD-40 would help it peel off? I once found a site that was 101 uses of the stuff and I think decal removal was one of 'em. Ha ha ha!

WD-40, GooGone, lighter fluid, hair dryer... It doesn't matter, the 2010 labels are pressed on. And if you finally did get one of them off, your visor would look worse off than with the sticker. Either cover them or get older visors.

DON'T DO IT!!!! if you have a 10 or 11 it is impossible without ruining the visor. ask me how i know. $90 for a new factory 11 visor and then it came with the decal on it. i tried everything! got about 1/2 of it off after days of frustration. i googled for solutions and found a guy with a new mercedes that spent $300 for two new visors because he destroyed his. he put up a 5 page rant about everybody in the govt that had nothing else to do but come up with useless stickers because many people that drive have no common sense and won't take responsibility for their own actions. the $5 cd holder from walmart that was mentioned above is a good fix. i used it until my new visor came in. i just accept the decals now and think about other things.

Taking stickers off-put visor back on?

Hello, I purchased my '09 Wrangler on New Year's Eve. I have been lurking for a couple of weeks. I have already found the answers to several of my questions on here. Always wanted a Jeep but this is the first one. My Dad did own a Jeepster back in the late 50's.
I read the information on taking the stickers off. I easily slipped my visor off and went inside because it was so cold outside. Stickers came right off. Now I cannot get the visor to slide back on. I see that the post has some flat areas and tried lining the visor up, but I don't know the trick. Please give me some pointers. Yes, I am an old woman that still needs a man's help.

DON"T DO IT!!!! is right. Never use a razor blade to get under the decal. I just sliced through the visor material like BUTTER. Never even knew it, thought the decal was coming off ha ha cry cry darn darn

So as shabby as it looks , I undercoated it. Looks ok, better than a sticker with jagged edges. Best thing I think, being as this one is ruined, try an upholstery shop and see what they can do for me.
