LPS does indeed make a contact cleaner. This is the stuff I use...
http://www.lpslabs.com/Products/Elec...rs/CFCFree.asp

It should be used with good ventilation. Perhaps it might be best to remove
the visors from the car or set up a fan blowing air through the car before
using it. Note that I've used it for many purposes, e.g., circuit boards,
stereos, as well as using it to remove the glue left behind on objects by
stickers. So far, it has never damaged any plastics I've used it on.

Default How do I get these #%$&! stickers off my new Civic window visors??

Just bought a new Honda Civic LX sedan and so far I am very happy with
it (only had it 2 days, though! (-; )

However, one thing I am unhappy about is the fact that they put these
big yellow gaudy stickers on my window visor that warn about seating
babies or children in the front seat! I don't even have any children
or babies, nor do any ever ride with me!

But in trying to peel these stickers off, it appears that if I do so
it might take the material on the visors off with it!

So my question is, How do I take these damned ugly warning stickers
off my new car without ruining the upholstery that covers the visors?

Would appreciate help from anyone who has successfully done so.

Also, is there any place to buy Lo-Jack stickers to make thieves
believe you have it even though you do not? Seems to me that the
sticker is about as good as the device itself and would be a lot
cheaper...

I did not dare to try to pull off those stickers. I couldn't envision
any method to take them off cleanly. Yeah, it would be nice if they
put those warning labels on post-it notes that you can easily remove.

I've never tried it, but you might want to consider using some type of
solvent to loosen up the adhesive. I would start with LPS brand contact
cleaner. It's a little expensive but it "shouldn't damage" most plastic.
Note, don't even think about trying to use those cheap tuner cleaners. Most
of them contain mineral oil and that's probably not something you want.

A last ditch option would be to buy replacement visors as long as the new
ones didn't come with stickers.

I think I'd begin with GooGone or similar product before LPS.
LPS,I believe,is NOT a "contact cleaner".

Maybe some mild heat from a hairdryer would help.

Are they stickers or molded into the vinyl?

Are replacement visors available? Do they have stickers on them? How
much do they cost?

I am not buying new visors at dealer prices! This is ridiculous! I'm
going to complain to Honda about this. I mean, the stickers are really
big and bright and obnoxious! I understand they want people not to put
kids in the front seat, but really, people are going to do what they
want regardless of the sticker. The stickers should be removable!

As for trying solvent, the visors are not vinyl or plastic, they are
cloth-covered. The cloth is synthetic, yes, but I fear that any
solvent will discolor them. I was hoping someone had done this and
could tell me how to do it without damaging the upholstery.

If I don't hear from anyone who's done it, I'm writing the VP in
charge of Customer Relations for Honda and asking him for new visors
without the damned stickers!

Thanks for your replies.

LPS makes both a contact cleaner that is styrene safe and a lubricant known
as "LPS 2." The contact cleaner has a light aroma and evaporates completely.
