petrol will melt the glue and allow you to remove it with a plastic scraper

don't use boiling water! made that mistake on my Glanza and it fucked the paint right up!

I normally use a hair dryer and a lot of tar/glue remover in between.

Cheers I shall give the boiling water method a massive swerve :)

goodluck with the glue mate.

Im not 100% sure whether you can get it all off without leaving some marks etc.

fingers crossed time :)

Cheers Jason I shall cross my fingers too and I've got some autogard scuff remover that is awesome for the residue left :)

Hmm will the petrol foul or even damage the paint that what worries me?

Also do I need to leave the petrol to soak into the glue tape? :)

Okey doke cheers. I've got an hr to do it tomorrow inbetween work so my main aim is to it off :) I can deal with the glue after. Then get the rear window limo tinted. Warrington audio have offered it me for half price as I sorted one of their lads cars a good while back.

the petrol shouldn't do any damage as it shouldn't need to be on there long enough to the petrol works pretty instantly normally on the glue stick the petrol into a small spray bottle so you can control better where it goes

Always found Auto Glym Bug and Tar Remover works well on glue and you know

it's safe to use on your paintwork..... Cheap too at about £5 per bottle.
