Taking off dealer sticker?

I would like to take off the dealer sticker. Each letter is a separate sticker. How would I go around getting ride of 40ish stickers without damage

Re: Taking off dealer sticker?

Yuck. A little heat usually helps. I'd use a hair dryer, then peel them with your fingernails. Clean up with Goo Gone and, if needed, go over the area afterword with some polish or polish/wax.

It's usually not difficult, just time consuming. I'd stay away from using any tool, blades, etc. to lift the stickers.

Re: Taking off dealer sticker?

ughh! i hate when dealers put there name on the vehicle as a sticker!

It's so much easier if they just use a license plate bracket wiyth their names on it that you can easily take off.
The dealer my husband got his Ford F-150 from put their dealer name sticker right on the tailgate. Every time i go to take it off he says leave it, I like it there! Drives me crazy!.....LOL!!!

Re: Taking off dealer sticker?

This was the first thing I did when I got mine home. They came off fairly easily, I dont think they had much time to stick as I picked up my car the day after it arrived

Re: Taking off dealer sticker?

I had the dealer remove the sticker before I bought it. I told them if they wished to pay me for their advertising, I would leave it but since they declined..............

Re: Taking off dealer sticker?

I like and used WD-40 & a fingernail... No damage to paint at all.


Open the hatch so you've got both the subject at eye level and what will drip down won't go onto the rear bumper.

Spray the WD onto the lettering and then go to work on it...

Keeping the letters wet on surface as it runs underneath is key to a quick & error-free removal.

Wipe clean, then wax & buff...

Your done advertising

Re: Taking off dealer sticker?

F uck dealer advertising. I hate that s hit on my ride.

A little heat and a fingernail will take them off. Goo gone wipe down after. Easy to do and zero damage, just takes time.

Re: Taking off dealer sticker?

It was 88 here the other day and I left the tailgate in the sun all day. I was able to peel the stickers off one by one with my finger nail and a goop gone to clean up afterwards. It took me maybe 10-15 minutes which was good with me.

Re: Taking off dealer sticker?

An old plastic credit card or plastic scraper (from the paint department at your local hardward or superstore) works good to carefully get the edges of the letters started. I sometimes will use a new single-edged razor-blade to get the sticker edges started (on flat surfaces only). Run the edge on your jeans several times and it "rounds" the sharp razor edge so it will not scratch if you keep the blade at a very steep angle. Proceed carefully with this approach - takes a steady hand and some practice.

Spray the area with WD-40 as you work the letter off, and use WD-40 to remove any excess adhesive. WD-40 works great for softening or removing paper and plastic adhesive-backed labels from plastic or painted surfaces. Many other "safe" solvents and Goo-Gone can "etch" some plastics, clearcoat and painted surfaces. WD-40 is also best to use to remove those road grease and tar marks and pieces.

Best luck.

Re: Taking off dealer sticker?

Should peel off one by one with fingernail. That's what I did with my Tacoma. There wasn't even any residue. Now my jeep I told them to save their sticker so it better not be on there when I pick it up this week. And I already have a polished stainless plate frame to replace the dealer plate frame. That stuff is tacky
