    If the stickers are on your screen then simply peel them off and on the residue left behind apply spirit, nailpolish remover, perfume with the help of tissue paper. If the sticker is on the body of the car, stand the car in the sun for 1-2 hours to make the body hot, apply turpentine oil (matti ka tail) and dont rub it hard for some minutes, the sticker will soften up and u can easily take it off. If the sticker is on the body I would say leave it there and dont remove it because your car is 25 years old and if you remove the sticker there will be a difference of colour under the sticker and patches will be visible.

    Yes, I have done it on all my cars. I have purchased all my cars from Honda Classic and they place their sticker on the trunk. I remove it and polish the surface. Nothing happens to the paint. So what to do:
    1) Park the car in the sun so that the sticker is quite hot(this will speedup the task).
    2) now apply turpentine oil on the sticker
    3) after 5 minutes apply turpentine oil again
    4) repeat the above step(step# 3) until you feel the sticker is dissolving. Number of repetitions depends on the size and age of the sticker.
    5) Keep in mind do not rub vigorously. Only gentle rubbing.
    6) Once the sticker is removed, wash and polish the surface.
    One thing more I have tried this on my cars which are about 2 years old. So I don't recommend this for cars older then 3 years because the colour under the sticker maybe different.

    What makes you roam around with the sticker for two years but not more?

    Sent from my Sony Xperia U via PakWheels' Forums' Mobile App - don't buy it.

    will try to do this process, the dealer applied the sticker a year ago when we bought the car.

    Actually I came to know about this technique after 2 years from the purchase of the car. So now whenever I buy the car the first thing is to remove the ugly stickers.

    use a hair dryer on the sticker, it will come off easily then. after you're done, apply a little perfume and clean it up with a cloth or even a tissue paper. easy stuff

    On the glass use single edge razor/blade to remove and clean up with nail polish remover. On body try using hair dryer.
    Even if you are on the right track, you will get run over if you just sit there.

    Best solution, remove the sticker and only the sticky residue would be left, then use rubbing compound on the residue and rub it off with a soft cloth,
    It will be good as new
