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...

Re: Vignette Removal

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.

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.
