Re: Vignette Removal

The trick is to make sure it isn't so sticky when you first attach it. A couple of goes sticking a new one on your jeans or a fluffy pullover will reduce the vignettes attachabiliy considerably...

Remove a vignette??

Not a chance - I find it easier to buy a new car each year

Re: Vignette Removal

I do not use a scraper. I have the 3M Easy clean pen (this is the same pen which is sold with the vignette kits in the post office).


The pen dissolves the adhesive and then you can easily remove the vignette.

...coupled with waiting for a warm day and parking in the sun.

It's Switzerland. Of course they have a specific product for this. Available at post office.

I use the kit posted above, it works really well and has done two years worth already so it's not bad VFM really.

Re: Vignette Removal

I use an old razor blade, and clean the remaining glue off with nail varnish remover.

And service stations. I can confirm it is a 30 seconds job, no mess, no fuss.

How to (physically) change vignette sticker

Hello everyone.

I'm driving a temporary company car while I wait for my permanent issue to be finalised.

The leasing company posted me a new vignette sticker for '21, but I can't see any elegant way to get the old '20 sticker off - it seems to have some anti-peel perforations on it to stop exactly that.

Is there some "official" way one is supposed to remove the old sticker? Everyone else in our car-park seems to have managed it flawlessly.

I use a scraper similar to this https://www.galaxus.ch/de/s4/product...B&gclsrc=aw.ds .... followed by some glass cleaner.

Re: How to (physically) change vignette sticker

You can use the same scraper thing you use to clean your Ceran Hob.

I know it sounds perhaps ridonkulos, but if you have a garage with electrical socket close to your car, you can also use a hairdryer and it will peel off flawlessly. I did that always when living in my former home, took all of 5 minutes to be changed this way.

Re: How to (physically) change vignette sticker

I use a scraper now as well. Before I had it, I used fingernail polish remover on a paper towel. Takes a couple of minutes but it removes it completely.
