    Sometimes a heat gun will soften the glue so they can be pulled off. Then clean with thinner, wash with some degreaser stuff.

    This is the absolute best way to get glue off !!! I know you might think I am crazy...but we have been using it for years....it will remove anything sticky including pine sap, sticker glue...but it will destroy some plastic...it is cheap and available at home Depot...look in the cleaning section...

    Lot's of things. Baby oil, WD40, diesel fuel, Goo Gone and warming it with a hair dryer will let them work easier.

    Ok, the heat gun is prob what i need to try. Getting the actual sticker off is usually the hard part. Getting the glue off is not as hard once the paper part is gone. I will give it a try, thanks

    +2 for citrus-based cleaners. I've never had them damage anything when trying to get stickers and other types of glue off.

    I've used WD-40 with success. I will try the citrus though.
