    Yeah, there's a dude on here making cover up stickers for that. Got them for my 2016 visors in my truck and also ones for the wife's RAV4................just PM him and have measurements of the stickers and he'll hook you up.

    https://www.tacomaworld.com/threads/fs-visor-vanity-mirror-cover-decals-limited-time-only.464685/

    the thread may seem dead but if you notice on last pg I got some plain blackish ones at the end of June. Perfect fit and color match. Here is pic of the vanity ones before I got the others to cover up the warning sticker covered up with the gopro sticker.............

    It's not a decal its painted directly on the mirror cover. I'm assuming anything that would remove the paint would also eat the plastic.

    The visor has two vinyl iron on type decals, those you can heat and pull off, which I did.

    But that third sticker on the mirror is actually painted on and can't be peeled off. I'm not risking acetone or Goo Gone on the soft plastic.

    Did you use a hair dryer to remove the 2?

    What'd you use for the adhesive? Is goo-gone safe for that?

    I didn't use anything, just the heat from the hair dryer.

    There was a very tiny amount of glue left but hitting it with the heat of the hair dryer for a sec made it disappear into the fabric.

    The grey interior is more forgiving and shows less than the black.

    Got them removed, even with a light residue it's way better than all those warning stickers. I also did my wife's Sienna which has tan interior and can hardly see the reside. I'm okay with it.
