Hair dryer and goo gone is what I used... Once the sticker is peeled it helps to use an old credit card or the like to get the remaining glue

If using a hair dryer, just make sure you aren't to close to the decal. You don't want to burn the clear coat. But, just using your nail to get one of the corners up is easy. Then just peel it off. You can always put adhesive remover on it first & let that work for a minute or 2 & then try peeling it.

Once old bumper stickers start looking ratty I'll usually take it to the local car wash, carefully aim the power nozzle and blast it off with hot soap and water. It's off in seconds. Goo gone will get rid if any left over stickyness

Goo Gone is great for the glue after you scrape the actual decal off. When I worked at an ambulance service, our mechanic told me brake fluid works just as well. For the actual scraping, you can buy plastic razor blades, but I'm not sure they'd work any better than a credit card, like Justinpar suggested.

:eek: Brake fluid will absolutely take the sticker off.....and the paint!

Don't use brake fluid.

I just peeled mine with my fingers and a little goo gone after to clean up any residue left over, done.

X10 Never use brake fluid. Sure it will take the sticker off right down to the bare metal. Brake fluid is a great paint stripper.
Where do people get these ideas from.:nonono:

I used a heat gun (but be very careful and keep it at distance because it's too much heat and will soften the paint). Then GooGone and soap/water/wax.

If you do the front JEEP emblem don't use a heat gun because the emblems keep the heat and can mar the softened paint if you aren't careful. Just use floss/fishing line behind to cut the cushions and use your finger to rub the rest then finish with GooGone. I tried pulling them off and the emblem dug into the paint a bit. Live and learn. Still came out fiine in the end but I had to offset my emblem a bit to cover the issue.

Just did this ^ the other day and worked fine... washed excess glue off with a little goo gone... :thumb:
I left mine in the sun for a couple of hours, peeled SLOWLY from one corner. Decals came off nicely in one piece. I bought Turtle Wax Label and Adhesive Remover. Sprayed it on the adhesive. It was amazing. Just disolved the adhesive, and I wiped with a cloth. Came right off. Couldn't have been easier. That stuff is great.
