Help! - How to remove warning sign on sun visors on 2014 Jeep Wrangler

Hey Guys,

I feel a little silly posting about this but i'm having trouble taking off the warning sign off my sun visors. On my 07 it was a sticker you could just pull off. On this one i'm not able to peel it off, it almost looks like its permanently attached. Anybody else have this same issue, and any suggestions on how to get it off?

Thanks

You don't. My 2010 is the same way. Cover it up with another sticker.

Pixeldecals.com has some up on his website that are already the same shape and size, or he will make custom.

A long time ago I got a new Boxster S and it was the first car I'd had that had those yellow monstrosities all over the sunvisors, or at least the first I cared about. The web was full of info on how to remove them, and it was involved and tricky and required solvents. I managed to get them off but wound up having to repaint the plastic mirror covers on the back side of both visors, as that is what discolored from the solvent use.

Anyway, when I've gotten subsequent Porsches and also this 14 Wrangler (oddly, the only vehicles I've cared enough to even do anything about it! ), I've found vendors online with solid black decals that are cut to fit over the existing sticker, as Star points out above. It's not perfect (you can still tell there's a sticker on your visor, of course), but I forgot about them after a couple of days.

Wal-Mart sells 8x10 sheets of black duct tape in the craft sections. Works well as a do-it-yourself cover-up. Also, there are some cheap ($5), black visor organizers on Amazon that work to cover up the obnoxious warning stickers. I've not heard of anybody having any success removing the warnings, so I didn't even attempt it.

I used a hair-dryer to remove the ones on my BMW. Thee is only a slight halo where it was.

Anyone try this??

Yes, Ravens. Evidently pre-2013 they were able to be removed with a hair dryer, but it was a mess and not always successful. 2013+ they started using a new process for the visor warning that no one has figured out how to get around. I don't know of anyone with a new jeep that didn't give up and cover with stickers.

I'm assuming it's one of those liability things that they don't want to be simple to remove so people can't say they peeled it off and didn't know X, Y, Z was dangerous because the sticker wasn't staring them in the face.

I believe the ones on my FjCruiser were the same as the ones in my 14 JK. It took me forever but I did get them off by picking at them and using a hair dryer (burning my fingers in the process) but I'm stubborn once I start something. I have picked a good corner off these just while sitting at redlights.
They bug the living crap out of me but so does any/all intrusions of these nannystate type legal liability crap. If you are so damn dumb that you need to be told things on the back of your visor you probably can't read to start with and second- you shouldn't be owning or operating a vehicle. IMO.
Pick em' or cover em' is about it.

Impossible to get the sticker off without ruining the visor. I found a guy on ebay who sells a black sticker set cut to the size of the two visors. Very reasonable and looks good. You just need to be careful when you start to put them on.

Probably True. If memory serves, my Fj visor ended up showing the effects of the removal. I remember taking a pic and posting it on an Fj Forum I modded.
When I was done removing ALL the Warning! stickers that undoubtedly kept me safe.
It was 17 stickers. I never counted the Warnings in the Owners Manual.

As many said, they don't come off. So Cover-Up-Decals or, LINE-X them!

You could find someone to upholster over them. I did that with my 350z. Turned out awsome.

Maybe somebody needs to take one for the team here and wreck a car - a CAR, I say intentionally - and then claim to have been distracted reading the important safety messages on the visor.

If you Google "Jeep visor decals" and select "images", there are some humorous look alike stickers. I don't know if I'd put them on, but it's worth a look for a chuckle.

If you remove or cover the stickers how will you know that if you turn to sharp at high speed you could lose control or tip over.
I feel so much safer because I can just look up and all that vital information is right there in front of me just like the do not fire gun until you read instructions stamped into the frame of my pistol.

Anyone ever buy a climber style tree stand? There has to be 47 warning labels on each half!

We can thank the ambulance chasers for each and every one of them!

I'm not saying we should go kill all the stupid people. I'm just saying we should remove all the warning labels and let the problem take care of itself.

On any vehicle that I've owned with this lovely warning sticker I've used 91% rubbing alcohol on the visor to get the warning stickers off. It is not the normal rubbing alcohol you find in the store which is only 70% you have to search a bit to find the 91%. It is in the store just not the regular stuff. Put some on a cotton swab and go around the edges of the sticker and after a minute or two it will start to peel off clean. There has been some residue left behind in the past but if you take your time and are patient it will eventually come off cleanly (as long as it is not a cloth covered visor). Granted a new visor or sticker is another option, but the rubbing alcohol is less than $2.50 at my local CVS.

I tried this today. Started on the passenger side since it's smaller. Half the sticker peeled off easily, the other half took about 45 minutes alternating between soaking with the rubbing alcohol and picking/pulling. So the passenger side is now good to go.

Not so lucky on the driver's side. I put a rag over the sticker and soaked it with rubbing alcohol. I let it sit on the sticker for 20 minutes, and nothing. Couldn't even pick a corner with my finger nail. Apparently Jeep does not was the driver's side sticker to come off and used some kind of super crazy glue on it.

Sorry to hear that. It took me a good 90 minutes to get them both off but I was peeling up on the sticker as I rubbed additional rubbing alcohol underneath it. When I was done the black looked a little dried from the alcohol so I cleaned it with soap and water and then used a detailing vinyl moisturizer to get it back to a solid black color. You are correct though these were certainly not meant to come off and these were the toughest ones I've ever removed. If you want to drop them in the mail to me I'll get them looking brand new without any leftover residue for you.

Is it really that big of a deal? I've had my new JK for almost a year now and I still have the little yellow tag hanging from the OMG bar cuz, you know, its cool! No but seriously, it will only drive you crazy if you fixate on it. You people do remember, it's a Jeep? Not a BMW or Porsche, a Jeep! I have a barefoot mud print on the inside door, flecks of mud on the rear seat and roll cage covers. I don't care because its a JEEP!

Can't stand the sun visor idiot stickers. I'm tall so they reflect light during sunsets directly into my eye, blinding me as I drive.
