Re: How do you get stickers off your car?

Prior to the hair dryer attack, it might pay to switch on the rear window demister to get a more widespread heat, now it's turning colder a sudden blast from the hair-dryer might just create a costly crack in the rear screen.

Hopefully pre heating will minimise the risk

The sticker is on the bumper by the way... That doesn't make a difference does it?

No same principle ,would recommend wd40 not the hairdryer though as you might lift the paint

Re: How do you get stickers off your car?

I find the thinners for hammerite paint will dissolve most adhesives on double sided tapes and pads. Very volatile and evaporates quickly. Safe on stainless and glass, could remove paint and dissolve some plastics though. Also very expensive. Use carefully and on a test area first to be safe. Be especially careful on painted surfaces.
