WD-40 let it soak a bit and wipe reapply if needed wont hurt paint.

+1

WD-40 solves everything. If you ever blow the engine. Just spray it with WD-40 and you'll be alright.

Use a hair dryer to soften the glue, use any car wax to remove...the cheaper the car wax, it has some kerosene in it and will remove without harming the clear coat....my $.02

WD-40 and scrape softly with the edge of a credit card to loosen it then wipe off with soft cloth wash and wax and done. I've removed stickers and decals off many new vehicles with this method and it works great with no scratches or marks on paint.

gah!

No plastic scraping! Use a microfiber towel with one of the sprays mentioned above (WD40, GM Adhesive Remover, etc).

Goo-Gone is what I've used on all of my cars and motocycles.

WD-40 and 3M Adhesive Remover would be my other choices.

If it can't be fixed with duct tape, baling wire and/or WD-40 and a craftsman wrench, it isn't worth saving.
