Dental floss work really good. Then that goo gone to get the rest of the glue off. Just takes time.

OK. Thanks I plan on doing this today or this weekend. I have also heard that a hair-dryer helps too. Is it this true?

Would you prefer goo-b-gone or just goo gone.

Like everyone said, dental floss works great... I also used 3M Adhesive Remover I got from an auto supply store.

If you do decide to paint them, I strongly recommend buying the new ones from the dealership. They cost me like $10 a piece, and saved at least that much in headaches...

I've used WD-40 and the edge of a credit card on my vehicles in the past. Plus a hair dryer (just don't get it to hot) with excellent results and then just wipe the WD-40 off and wax over the spot. Something about the WD-40 it will soften and brake down the glue and being slick doesn't mare the paint.

The letters cost me just over $21 from my local dealer. They had to order them, but I had them the next day. The letters come pre-spaced sandwiched between two layers of clear plastic. I removed the top layer (carefully), sanded the letters, used adhesion promoter, then the trim black. After it dried good, then I put the top layer of plastic back on, removed the bottom layer, and applied the letters.

Not too difficult, just need patience in sanding the letters...

I used 600 grit wet/dry sandpaper. I used it dry because of the adhesive and it worked well.

I removed mine by heating them with a heat gun, peeled right off and left no residue.
