How To Remove Dealer & Other Unwanted Stickers

All, I'm new here, and if this is in the wrong place, I apologize. I just purchased my '07 XK this week. The dealer put a stupid adhesive decal type sticker on the back liftgate. I don't want that sticker there. Any idea of a safe way to remove it without damaging the paint? TIA!

The sticker should peel off pretty easily. If its warm out it will peel easier. You may use a hairdryer to warm it up, dont get it too close though. It doesnt have to HOT !!, just a little warm. Any glue residue can be removed with a wax/ grease remover, or maybe some GOO-GONE.

it should be ok to use a little on the paint. dont leave it on there for a long time, wipe it on and get it off as soon as you can.

I've got Goo Gone too and have used it on paint before. The label shouldn't say anything about it being bad for paint so you should be good. It just doesn't work as good in the cold.

It's on the gate itself, not the glass.

I hate dealer stickers. When we bought our Hyundai, I peeled the sticker off right there on the lot in front of the salesman. He was real young , therefore pretty new at the job. The look on his face was priceless. I think he thought he might get in trouble. LOL !!

Mine came of with the heat gun and took lots of goo gone to get the adhesive off.

One time my father in-law was ordering a brand new Blazer 4X4 ... after he had the deal all wrote up and JUST before he handed the down payment he insisted there was to be NO dealer stickers on the truck.

The dealer said they HAD to put the sticker on as it was their policy .. so my father in law just got up and walked out, he stopped in almost a week later and they were kissing his butt, he got the "no sticker clause" like he wanted, and an additional discount off the price
