Exclamation HOW DO I GET THESE OFF?

I put those putco chrome door handle covers on my truck a few years ago and I no longer want them on there. The colorado winters are just to hard on them. They are stuck on with that like 3m double sided tape that seems to hold REALLY well lol. Is ther any way to get these off with out destroying my door handles? If they will come off is it gonna leave a residue on the black handles? I hope I dont have to just replace all the handles im sure that would be expensive. Thanks for your help!

You can try it but it may hurt paint but brake clean disolves that 3m double sided tape, or you can try and find the 3M adhesive remover in the spray can, or possibly goo gone.

I have used brake clean on painted surfaces with no problem but its your choice.

I thought of that but the way they attach I dont think i can get it behind the plastic to dissolve the tape. Am I going to have to break them off then do that? I wish i never put these on

If your gonna try to just pull and peel them i would try to get them hot with a heat gun or blow drier first to soften the tape up, DONT GO OVERBOARD AND MELT YOUR HANDLE LOL. Then use one of the things listed above to remove GUNK

Maybe Acetone. But watch out for the paint.
Whatever you use to try is though, If you have access to a syringe and blunt needle, it may help you to access the area.

The above opinions are my own and should not be substituted for common sense.

Can you get like a putty knife in there to at least pry the chrome to get to the tape? Or are they completely flush.

maybe try using fishing line between the handle and the chrome cover and try to use it like a string saw type deal kinda lik what they use to cut windshields out, and just saw back and forth and try to cut through the glue. then use like they were saying the 3m adhesive remover soak a rag and hold it on the handle and let it sit for a few minutes then wipe off. i dont know it might work. good luck

The like wrap around the handle a bit so it will be hard to get under them
