    Gonna be tough to remove and save the sticker.

    Most likely...in an effort to save the sticker...you'll probably damage the paint.

    Pics of said sticker?

    There is some stuff called sticker-off, it has a strong orange scent, but it takes off sticky stuff, like stickers, without damaging the paint

    No...not small amounts. But I only would use it for the leftover glue residue.

    Then follow with the wax or polish.

    I used goo gone to take off my badges. Soaked areas with it and no issues with me. Just wash/wax it when your done. You can test it on a small corner first and see how long it takes to lift the sticker.

    Hairdryer as everyone mentioned. Unless it hasn't been on there real long then just being in the sun you might be able to pull it off. Goo gone for excess adhesive. Process I've always used for stickers on various cars.

    When I took off my TRD Sport decals I only really needed the hairdryer to get it started.
