2011 Laredo Hatch Sticker is STUCK on

I bought a 2011 laredo E with ORA1 for $6k off sticker today.

and i can not get the rear hatch label off? like it's sun etched on to it that sticker has cracks in it which indicates me that my wk2 was sitting for a while.

What can i use to get it off? I DO NOT want to tear the plastic underneath it?

i have 53 miles on it so far

HUGE improvement from my WJ.

Re: 2011 Laredo Hatch Sticker is STUCK on

Sounds like a killer deal by the way...

I would use the service department from the salesman that sold it to you. i hope its a dealer. Not being an @$$ but if you mess it up you own it, if they mess it up they replace it. If under warranty, no visit to the dealer is stupid. Make them earn their money, and take care of the customer

I had a headliner issue regarding one screw loose under the headliner. I made the dealer replace the whole damn thing due to possible dirty finger prints and possible creases during removal. It required factory permission to replace it, dealer was not too happy. My comment was... well, I can always return the vehicle?

Re: 2011 Laredo Hatch Sticker is STUCK on

Re: 2011 Laredo Hatch Sticker is STUCK on

I was cussing out Jeep for the hour it took to get mine off. Mine was on there for several weeks in the sun on the dealers' lot, so I had the same issue. A rag, goo gone, and a plastic scraper and lots of patience.

Re: 2011 Laredo Hatch Sticker is STUCK on

I had to "moderately" use a heat gun to remove said label. After a few seconds of direct heat, it came right off leaving nothing behind.

Same goes for those annoying labels on the sun visor.

Re: 2011 Laredo Hatch Sticker is STUCK on

Are you talking about the caution labels on the visors?

Re: 2011 Laredo Hatch Sticker is STUCK on

Mine was on the lot for months so the sticker was a real PITA...for me it took bug and tar remover, a plastic scraper, and lots of patience.

Re: 2011 Laredo Hatch Sticker is STUCK on

use the heat gun or hair dryer. I used a plastic scrapper and goo gone...it worked, but there are a few very teeny minor scuffs. I didnt have a garage or long enough extension cord from my apartment so...

Re: 2011 Laredo Hatch Sticker is STUCK on

My dealer removed the "to be removed by customer only" label after I read it but prior to delivery,

Re: 2011 Laredo Hatch Sticker is STUCK on

That sticker was worse than any mod I've ever done! It took tons of goo gone and working it off slowly with my fingernail. I think Jeep went a little overboard with that sticker...they could have used something that didn't stick so much!
