      Remove stickers stuck on filmed windshield.

      Dear friends,

      Apologies if this is a duplicate post. Searched the forum, but couldn't find a similar one.

      I have a sunfilm installed on my car's windshield. Have a couple of parking pass stickers stuck on it from inside. Now they have expired. So I need to remove them and return. What is the best way to do it without damaging the film?

      I'm worried because if the film starts peeling, it's going to be huge problem driving at night. And off course huge expense to re-film the glass. But the saga of stickers will continue for ever!

      I heard camphor oil is effective. Did anyone try it? Wondering are there any substances/products that will remove the sticker but not damage the film in anyway?

      Well, any help is much appreciated. Thank you.

      PS: While googling for this on the internet, found a very smart trick. So sharing with you all. One person had to have some toll stickers stuck on the windshield. He was a sales agent for a car company. So he drove various cars each day. He came up with this trick. Apply some baby oil to the sticker and place it on the windshield. It appears as if the sticker is stuck. It's easy to remove too and put on another car.

      put some spirit and remove it.After you remove the stickers if the bits remain on it then use some petrol/diesel/kerosene and rub it.

      simple..
      there are many ways you can try to remove..
      1)a simple way it to use coconut oil at the point where the sticker meets the glass. put a drop leave it for 5min..try to peel it off..and add more drops as you pull it downward..
      2)use petrol (strong),better if you get white petrol (get it at mobile repair shops,or watch repair shops)
      3)use paint thinner (stronger)
      4)use nail polish remover (strongest)

      use 1 by 1 all these things to do the job..but mostly I think the coconut oil will suffice..
      now untill the petrol level no harm to the sunfilm will occour..never tried the other two before on a windscreen..but have tried on many other different things and usually got good result..

      dunno nail polish remover definitely will..but thinner I have a laquer thinner it seems to be mild not to cause any damage..
      try the 1st 2 things they will never damage..but is the film fixed from inside or outside ?
      my older car had it affixed from inside.. but never checked for this one..

      the film is fixed inside. luckily this sticker is stuck outside.

      no film is affixed from inside..why did you worry about the things..use some coconut oil dude..or use some rubbing alcohol (medical stores) to remove that impression..it works like a charm..
