    So I peeled off a vinyl sticker after 2-3 months but it's still there and noticeable at certain angles. Anyone have any advice on what I can use to get rid of what's still there? Thanks!

    If it on your glass just use a razor and glass cleaner to scrape the glue off or you could try goo-b-gone. Try make stuff to take the glue off..

    My mom had the same problem on her 4runner. We used tried lots of different things but nothing worked. Eventually after several washes it went away.

    Use 0000 steel wool, it won't scratch your window. It will actually polish and clean your window. 100%. I just took off a sticker and used a razor to remove the big gunk then used 0000 steel wool to clean the rest. Window is super clean now.
