Need help removing glue

I searched the knowledge base with no luck, so here goes. The car I just purchased has tinted windows. The sales sticker was afflixed to a window with tint. When I removed the sticker, some of it (and glue) stayed on the window. What cleaner or solvent can I use to remove the remaining sticker without harming the tint? Any tricks to it?

Thanks

3M general purpose adhesive wax and silicon remover. wallyworld has it in automotive, the part # escapes me right now.

a little dab on a rag, some mild rubbing and it ought to be gone, leaving the tint intact.

Glue on tinted window

I have not tried this yet, but was told by a shop that cleans up the car for the Mile Of Cars, Here in San Diego, that they use WD 40 to get the sticker glue off the windows of new and used car's. One never knows what will work. -----------------------------------------Gene Neal

Place black plastic on the outside of the doorglass, spray ammonia on the inside of the glass over the tint, take a blow dryer is it's below 85 degrees, and heat up the outside of the glass..start at the corners of the tint and just smush it up to the center of the window and remove the tint..should take most of the glue with it, if not spray with ammonia again and wipe until clean..

razor blades, windex, and lot's of elbow grease. If you have a shop in your area that sells johnson window films you can pick up some stuff called film off.

Oven cleaner also works like a charm. That's how I cleaned the adhesive from my windows.
