Ive taken off my wind deflectors and they have clearly been on the for a number of years!

Its proving difficultly getting the foam/glue off without causing some damage to the door paint etc.

Any advice welcome :)

Thanks!

Brilliant, cheers :)
Just had a go with the tar remover and unfortunately it didst touch it.
Those wind deflectors have been on the car a LONG time, the glue is soooo hard.

Ill have a look at the stuff in homebase :)

Haha okay, will give it a go, thanks :smthumbup
As said you need to really soak it with tar remover for at least 10 min then a plastic spatula/old credit card to scrape off. Heating it with a hairdryer will help this time of year too. :handsup:

Okay, sounds like I need to man up and prepare for the slog.

I've managed to get the foam off of some of it but the glue really is super hard. It's not softened yet. I'll keep trying.

+1 for regular brake cleaner. Essentially it seems to work by melting sticky residue. You need to be patient and use loads of it, but it always seems to do the trick in the end. And the bonus is that I've never known it damage car paintwork.
