My Roc came with the main dealers [solid colour] sticker in the top centre of the rear window...perfectly positioned so that whatever the seat position, all i can see of the car behind on the motorway is its wheels! I asked the dealer to remove it a while back but they refused, saying its tricky cos of the wire filaments it covers [hmmm...skilled technicians???] . Anyhow, finally got sick of it and yesterday peeled it off dead easy using a hair dryer to warm the glue. Before you ask I did this in the garage, didn't wanted the neighbours commenting that I was was now blow drying the ROC! :? Anyhow, I now have a bit of tricky glue left behind, can any of you techo's suggest the best gentle product to get it off? Tried a few things, but its hard work so far....Cheers for any help.

I did the same as you and then removed the residue with a bit of white spirit on a paper towel.
Methelated spirit, turps or gum remover will work just as well. You don't need too much and be carelful of the trim and heater elements.

Removed my dealer sticker the day I got the car, they might as well have stuck it on the rear view mirror for what I could see through it with it on the rear window. Peeled the sticker of then used a little white spirit to get rid of the glue, perfect.

I had a similar experience a few years ago when I bought an Audi A3. I had asked the dealer not to put any stickers in, but someone did any way. They did, however, remove it as soon as I arrived to pick up the car. I made a point this time of insisting that no stickers were applied ANYWHERE in or on the car, as I would only be asking them to remove them immediately. I also made sure that the dealer postcode and name was as small as possible on the plates. My dealer was very accommodating but obviously not all are. I am surpsied that they had the gall to refuse to remove one of their poxy stickers which, you could argue, was defacing your car just to promote their business.
