Tips for removing vinyl headlight tint?
 
Hey guys, I bought my WK with some ugly vinyl tint on the headlights. I peeled back a corner of it and it left a nasty, sticky mess on the headlight lens. Anyone have any tips to remove these things?

goo gone to remove the sticky residue

I have read some horror stories about using goo gone on headlights. It isn't safe on all types of plastic. Anyone here use it on WK headlights before?

i have used goo gone on the headlights to remove the windo-weld sealant after opening my headlights to paint. You can also buff it after or use some rubbing compound.

Try WD40

I'd expect WD-40 or Goo Gone either one to work. If you still have any film left, use a hair dryer to warm it up good before removal.

The plastic lenses won't be hurt by Goo Gone, and WD-40 is an old reliable cruft removal tool.
