I have four stickers on my Cmax advertising the garage I bought it from. The usual banner one on the inside of the back window, but also a round one top right on the inside of the windscreen, and one each side on the inside of the faux quarterlights. I really don't like the assumption that I am willing to drive about as a 'free advertising' board, but have never found an easy and effective way to remove them without leaving a gluey mark. Does anyone know of a good product that will remove these stickys and leave the glass clean? I have tried turps but it doesn't really do the job effectively and leaves a stink that lasts ages, and I don't fancy using a painting blade in case I leave scratches.

First thought would be a hair dryer!

I know when I bought mine, that was first thing I did but was easy as they had just stuck them on.
Will have a look later and see if anything else crops up!

I was gonna say the same thing.
Hairdryer first, as it should soften the glue, but depends on how long they have been on the car for.
Secondly nail varnish remover or paint thinners works quite well too.

I did what Steve (LAWE) did and took them off the car with in about two days of buying the car.

We do enough advertising of garages because half the time they add their details to the number plates.

Be careful when you remove the sticker on the inside of the rear window. When the "experts" at the "dealer" where I bought mine from kindly removed most of the heated rear screen element as well!

I found that a JML Magic Eraser does a brilliant job.Once the sticker is off,cut a small 1" square of eraser,soak it and wring it out,then rub over the area with glue residue.It will take off all trace.This stuff is also great for getting scuffs off the plastics on the outside of the car ie,door trims,mirror housing,bumper surround.It will also get slight scratches off the wheels,but DON`T put it on the metal bodywork.
If you do rub it on the bodywork,you will have to put some colour polish on to get the shine/lustre back.
This stuff can be bought from Wilkinsons for £3.99.

Possibly sounds too harsh but it works, A Stanley knife blade!, it doesn`t scratch the glass and cuts through the sticker/glue.
I used the in the old days of sticky mirror pads, the customers face would be a treat as you took to their pride and joys windscreen, a little bit of glass cleaner afterwards and all is well!.

As previously mentioned, BEWARE OF THE METAL STRIPS ON REAR HEATED SCREEN!!!!!!!!!!!!
There is a pen you can buy to repair the tracks, but am told it is costly!
Hope it helps.
