tax sticker

We have just bought our tax sticker for 2012 but can't get the one for 2011 off the windscreen. Anyone know the secret?

Re: tax sticker

If have never done this myself, but my friends tell me that, if you use a hairdryer and blow some hot air on it, it will easily come off after a few minutes.

Don't blame me if somebody takes a picture of you sitting in the car with a hairdryer

Hairdryer and razor blade, I'm told, followed by a solvent such as nail varnish remover if you leave any sticky residue.

Personally I tend to leave the old ones in place, lazy as I am

Re: tax sticker

OBI, COOP Bau & Hobby and Migros Do-It sell a sticker removal tool which has a sharp metal scraper with plastic handle and a set of wet-wipes to remove the glue.

You can can usually find similar kits in petrol stations.

Re: tax sticker

Pfft. You should just do what the swiss do, and either:

- Buy a new windscreen
- Buy a new car

Re: tax sticker

And the Post Office sells the kits as well.

Personally since I have three cars to do, I go with the hairdryer (2 minutes hot heat) and a plastic scraper (you should be able to find something in the kitchen) followed by some lighter fluid/make up remover pads to get the glue off. Then a final spray of window cleaner and you are done.

Remember, there are only THREE approved places to put the vingnette. The places are shown on the back paper (upper left corner, lower left corner, behind the rear-view mirror).

Re: tax sticker

Mine is on the lower left corner as the one for 2011 was behind the rear view mirror, however it is squint. I won't even ask if this is allowed as i know the probable answer. Oh well!
