Visor Warning Sticker Removal

Those warning labels on the visor have got to go, three languages and annoying. Yes I get the reason why Ford had to install them and why they couldn't remove them when I asked upon delivery.
What's the quickest and best method to get them off without cutting or scrapping up the visor.

Thanks

Thanks for the feedback but the visors are vinyl, not upholstery.

Yea after 2 hrs of heating and picking, with hardly any progress, all ive really done is burnt the end of my fingers, wore my fingernails down and royally pissed me off, there is no removing these bad boys. Im afraid to hit the vinyl w/ any chemicals so I think they can stay, or I may have somebody make me some color matched blank decals to cover em up.

Ive peeled the stickers on my 05 and 08 yea they sucked but were doable.......but has anybody have any success on the 2011+ visors?

My wife took it up the challenge for warning label removal with a hair dryer and it had no affect what so ever. She tried a razor blade to get a corner loose and all it did was leave some visual scratches to the visor, glad it's on the her side of the truck. That's a good option to have a color matched decal placed over the warning labels I'll see what's available from the business that made the decals for my Boat. Thanks for the thought..
