    There's some stuff called oops. You should be able to find it at your hardware store. It works great for geting any of the glue residue off.:waytogo:

    Straight razorblade (like for a box knife) will cut a sticker right off. The leftover adhesive will come off with paint thinner, lacquer thinner, etc. If you spend enough time with the razorblade, it will get the adhesive off too.

    You can smell that it's a petrolium base product,but it works excellant!

    That and a razor blade will work.

    Use a razor blade to get the sticker itself off. Then, instead of paying $5.00 for a can of Goof Off or Oops, but a $1.50 can of Zippo fluid. Same thing, WAY cheaper. I've done it a million times. Well, three times anyway.

    Naw, really they sell a straight edge razor blade holder just for scraping things off glass. Bet Wally Mart has one for a buck!

    I always use Windex and a razor blade, prevents scratching of the glass and really eats away the glue adhesive. Works great and it's almost streak free

    when i worked at a detail shop we used a razor blade and windex, -Just MAKE SURE to use plenty of lube (windex or something like that) and a new razor blade to prevent scratching the glass, this method can also be used to remove pinstriping or those dealership decals just take your time.
