Does anyone have a good way of removing the glue residue after removing the warning labels from the sun visors?
I did this a couple of years ago but don't remember what I used. Visors on my new V are black and any glue residue would really show

:cheers

Y ou can use Goo-Be-Gone, naptha or acetone to remove the glue residue. Be careful with the latter two as they are potent.

I got this one

Yes Jack, go to Home depot and buy Goof Off in the paint department. Peal the sticker off and then wet a clean towel on a cormer with Goof Off and rub gently and let dry. Repeat if necessary. You can't even tell my visors had a decal.

Caddie, I hope you don't leave the warning labels on everything, like, the screen on a plasma TV, toaster ovens door, etc, etc, etc. If I could get the warning screen off my navigation, I would remove that too.

This comes up on the Vette and Viper sites but it is never a good idea to remove warning labels for any number of reasons.

Ok, guys here's the deal and for what I care you can tear every warning out of car and manual.

I have defended hundreds of product liability cases for over 20 yrs including defending auto manufacturers. Most of these cases involve claims of "failure to warn", a legal theory of recovery. If you lend your car or if you have a passenger in the car and they are injured or killed, they, or their estate will file suit, and let's say one of the theories is they did not know to wear belts with all the other supplementary restraint that are in the car (or a child gets whacked by a by sitting too closely.)

They sue GM, you and everyone else they can. GM's engineers inspect the vehicle and the first thing they see is the warning labels were removed, GM cross claims you the owner. The failure to warn case is now yours--congratulations. A jury in East Tx or South Fla (or some other legal cesspool) buys into the story that the removal of the labels was a causative factor in the injuries or death and returns a multi-million $ verdict and your insurer pays the policy limits of say, $500K the rest coming out of your pocket. Not a pretty story and it happens more than you think.

I must say my favorite warning in roadsters is that the back seat is safest for kids.

Anyway, remove all you want just remember there are risks involved--you have been warned.

Caddie,
And what makes you think you are talking to monkeys at the zoo. I have been around the barn two times now, so I feel I can take my own risks without being scolded. Hope daddy doesn't find out or he will ground me........Geeeeez

Standby--I was happy to leave it as "it's not a good idea" You then started in on me about removing labels from microwaves, etc. I wasn't scolding anyone. Don't take things so personally--relax. Happy New Year

Caddie,
You responded to my information in how to remove a label, therefore it is personal............You have a happy new year too

I tried acetone since that was what I had in the house. Acetone did not work. I tried some sticky packing tape. It took about 20-25 minutes and a yard of tape per label to clean off the glue.

I used the glue b gone and had to work on one visor for quite awhile. I was hesititie to use Goof Off since i am told that it has removed colorr on occasion. I didnt' wnat to be one of the statisitics....

I'm happy it worked out for you.

BTW: I taped them in the inside cover of the owners manual.

So hopefully the liability issue will be diminished for me. I got the car that way your honor..."That's my story and I'm sticking to it".
