Hi All,

I need some suggestions as to what the best chemical (or other method) I should use to remove some old tape residue from the inside of the rear window. When I bought the car over a year ago, they had taped some signs into the window and I thought I would deal with the tape later. Now, almost two years later, it appears I waited too long - that stuff is caked on the window in two 1"x1" spots. Someone suggested a razor blade to scrape it off, but the rear window defrost wires are on the inside and I don't want to mess with accidentally slicing one in half.

Thanks,
Chris

WD 40 is pretty harmless for this. Then clean with Windex or whatever you prefer to clean windows.

Yep, WD40 and a little elbow grease should do the trick.

I think the previous posts are spot on, but if you don't want to use WD-40 then some rubbing alcohol should also work or if you have a hand held steamer like the scunci then that would work also.

Those should work, but if not, nothing seems to work better for me than 3m adhesive remover. I get it at Napa. I use it to remove anything sticky, including tons of rubber off the dusters 1/4 panels.

I wanted to thank everyone for their suggestions. WD-40 worked perfectly with a little patience. A follow up with Windex and you can't tell the tape was ever there.

Best regards!
Chris
