Hair dryer. Heat it up and it should peel right off. Any sticky residue that may be left can be removed with goo gone.

Or wd40 and razor blade at a sharp angle so as to not scratch the paint

I'd avoid the razorblade. Alcohol can make some glues come off easier also. Start with the hair dryer and patience. If they are that thick you might be able to peel them off once warm enough.

If someone stuck those things on there I'm afraid of what might be underneath.

As mentioned above use heat (heat gun, hair dryer or your credit card method) to remove as much as you can then try the Goo Gone or WD. If there is still some adhesive left use one of these:

I have used these wheels many times on black vehicles without damage to the paint. Its like a pencil eraser.

Let whatever you use (goo gone,WD 40) set for a whole. People just spray with goo gone and expect it to peel right off. When it sets for several minutes at least it works much better.

Use fishing line or dental floss to peel it up in one even piece. After you get a small corner up a little, put the line/floss under the sticker and use a sawing motion to remove it.

I agree - I've used goo gone and it's worked like a charm... but, for tough sticky stuff it has to sit!

That's why you need the string. The thinnest you can find. It will slice it off in one piece. Warm the sticker with a blow dryer first to loosen the adhesive and the line or floss will work like a razor without doing any damage to the paint. This is the method they use to remove vinyl from painted surfaces in the sign business.

when you do use the heat gun concentrate on one corner and try lifting it when glue liquifies.

I took the thick black rubber body side moldings off my chevy truck..you know what they look like...they are down low and run the full length of the truck and are very thick and wide.....I first squirted 3M adhesive remover along the top edge and let it soak down under the factory adhesive.

Did a test pull the next day, and wetted them again from the top, then again the next day....On 5th day I could start yanking them off...it was still tuff, but they came off and left the paint.

From there I went back to the body shop supply house where I got the 3M adhesive remover, and bought two round rubber eraser wheels like shown in pic near top of this post., and used them after watching video on youtube.

I kept wetting the remaining adhesive with the adhesive remover and lightly applying the eraser wheels.....took full day, but it was finally all off and paint was flawless.

The fishing line trick works best on factory glued emblems....I have used fishing line many times to remove Harley gas tank emblems and reflectors from VERY expensive factory custom paint jobs and never damaged the paint.....then followed up with 3M adhesive remover and lotsa elbow grease and wax.

Don't laff, but for regular around the house price sticker removal, just peel an orange then bend and squeese the rind near the sticky stuff...The citrus oil in the rind will spray out and disolve the glue...promise

My uncle was a mechanic...he had and orange tree....when in season he would pluck an orange, peel and eat it, then wash the grease off his hands with the citrus oil from the rind...Try it
