Stupid question but:-
Whats the best product to use to clean off a dealers window sticker from the rear screen?
I have the original one on the car but its gone brown and spoils the look of the car.I,ve picked at the edges and small fragments come away,is it ok to use a white spirit solvent on the screen ?

remove it.might take a few goes.

yes but be carefull at the rear window though that you dont scratsh the heatingstrings for defrosting when using razor blades.

i would use acceton on windows for removing residue.
for windows it works great BUT do not use acceton on paint though!! it will take away the shine really fast

Use Goo-Gone. I'm amazed that no one suggested that yet.

A question I was going to ask this, same question but for factory privacy glass? I would normally peel the label when possible, then use a really small amount of Autoglym Intensive Tar Remover (and patience) to remove the greasy, sticky residue. I'm a bit nervous of destroying the tinting and making it worse than a bit of sticky goob.

Edit - I hate the way dealers put stuff like this on cars, even more the ones who put their own BADGES on the back. Aaaargh!
