    Has anyone got an good methods for remobing dealer stickers from my rear window on my hatchback?

    whats annoying is that it is slighty over one of the heater eleements for the rear defroster. The thing is though its not a Honda one, but from a dealer who sold the car about 10 years ago, and its aged badly and looks rubbish. Idealy I should replace it with one of HK's

    If you can get most of the sticker off, I've found WD40 works well to get the old glue and marks off.

    Takes a few goes, but I got residue from a 1970s tax disc off a windscreen with a bit of patience...

    Neat, I'll give that a go. I can get one of those scrapers that have a Stanley blade in them, but will have to be carefull .

    Should have said, use cotton wool balls rather than a cloth!

    I just peeled my dealer sticker off, then spayed the following on what was left, rubbed with a cloth and it all came straight off.

    Scrap off most of it with a razor blade and use the missus nail polish remover to get the glue off. The acetone just eats through the sticky mess and won't damage the demister elements

    tbf mate, there are quite a few things you could use. I've used white spirits to clean windscreens when they become streaky/oily, isoprophyl alcholol is great too on glass, as is methylated spirits. A 500ml bottle is around a quid or so. No need to buy anything expensive to clean old stickers off with.

    I've had the best success with IPA removing stickers from glass, works well on window tint too.

    You might need some glass polish in the end, because it leaves those transparent edging which needs to be polished out.
