Best way to remove dealer sticker
 
What's the safest way to remove? Thanks in advance.

It depends, mine was individual letters that seemed like plastic. While washing the car I was able to remove them with my finger nail. I did it a couple of days after getting the Jeep and it left no marks.

Best way? Make the dealer remove it.

I used a hair dryer, low heat which softens up the letters and they peal right off.

Heat it up, use dental floss or fishing line and then goo gone if there is residue

Made the dealer remove a sticker/decal?

I know most people don't DIY but ...sheesh, it's a sticker. :confused:

Yes, I've made dealers remove it before I would sign the final papers and drive off the lot. :)

That said, most dealers these days use vinyl transfers which can easily be removed by heating with a hair dryer or heat gun and then carefully peeled using a soft plastic scraper or a finger nail. Any remaining residue can be removed with "Goo-Gone" or similar and then washed.

It's real simple when you do factory order....tell them it's a deal breaker if there is a dealer sticker AND a dealer license plate frame . Works for me.

You bet they are logo, especially when they drill holes into the front bumper of a brand new car like they did on mine...

I've always just used a heat gun or hair dryer. Then use dental floss or fishing line to work it away from the body and then goo for any left over gummy stuff. Then maybe wipe the area or whole car with a little detail spray.

I had instructed the dealer to not put there emblem or license bracket on my vehicle; but once I saw the emblem I took it and put it where I wanted it because I thought it made a great contrast or match with the vehicle. Still might remove the Las Vegas just have to make up my mind. Once I put it where I wanted it the dealer thought it looked great.
