Anyone remove visor stickers?

Has anyone removed those ugly seat belt/airbag warning stickers on the visors? I tried peeling one back a little and they seem very securely attached. I'm curious if they're those kind of stickers that peel off in a million pieces and leave a nasty residue behind? Or do they cleanly come off in one piece? I don't want the visors to look worse if I try to take them off. Anyone done this yet?

A heatgun works best. If you don't have access to one, a hair dryer will get the job done. Get the adhesive good and hot and it will peel off with virtually zero residue.

Re: Anyone remove visor stickers?

I only had a few small specs of glue about the size of a pencil eraser remaining when I did mine. A few more passes with heat and it rolled right off of the material. Looks like nothing was ever there.

Sorry for being rude up there.


I gave never seen a good job of removal.

I have seen many attempts and have tried all sorts of supposed perfect ways.

Heat. Irons. Chemicals.



Maybe you were lucky or real good doing it......i just never seen a perfect job. See shadows or something.

No worries. Being that the vehicle is fairly new, the material was untainted when I removed the visor stickers. There was a an imprint border for a few days then it disappeared. Even if the border remained, I'd be much more happy with that vs that fugly decal.
