    Removing glue from a plastic vert rear windows help

    As per title, the car had a sticker on the window when I bought it, but I've peeled it off and it's left some of the gluey residue, I've tried nail varnish remover but no joy,

    Can anybody suggest anything that will take it off?

    Have you tried AG Intensive Tar Remover ? It also helps to have a hair-drier to warm up that spot & a fair amount of rubbing should remove it.

    The "glue and tar removers" work surprisingly well at removing errr glue, lol. There are a few brands out there. Either one will work fine. Don't get it near your eyes and wear gloves.
