Removing Vent shade glue?

Lasted a whopping 6 or 7 months. I guess the FL sun is to powerful. the glue is letting go on 1. so others will follow suite. I just want to remove them... anything held on with double sided tape.... not a very "long term" modification. I do like how the bug visor is held in with screws But anyway... whats the trick to remove the glue from the window trim?

Man, I'm pissed. I took one off, and am trying to get the glue off... OMG. WTF. That's not normal double side tape. I didn't know this was a "permanent" modification. Almost have to buy new window moldings. MF'er!!!! Might go pick up some goofy off.

I've used "goo gone" with a lot of elbow grease and cussing with success... Good luck and make sure you don't start on it when there are children around.

Got 2 done. Used fishing line to saw them off. then used my fingers to pick the big pieces of tape off. Then used some green brilo pad with XTREME goo gone. LOTS OF elbow grease!!!! Everything looks great on the 2 I did. except I cut the passengers rubber molding pretty bad by accident when I was experimenting at first with a razer blade. So I had to super glue a chunk back together. Really pissed me off, but it looks decent. only real casualty so far.. Now I know how to do it... dang 1st time. Really wish I never put them on my truck. Rather have the money. and no cut in my window molding.

I had the front two come off of my truck or were barely attached when I bought it -- unfortunately the previous owner tried to use silicone to "glue" them on -- AND they were attached to the door, not the window molding!

I used goo gone and razors and LOTS of elbow grease... they are on now and looking good and holding strong!

Try acetone with a rag. Go easy on the paint though. That stuff works great for taking off old decals etc.
