    ... but anyway ..... another question.

    What the HELL is the adhesive that glues MHF stickers to windows so well it ought to be used for fixing solar panels and satellites dishes to roofs ?

    WE have mate - 2000 watt Babyliss - doesn't work Jim !

    I said let's try that, after all it used to get the 'tape' coachlines off that people used to stick on cars to make em go faster, so I thought it would. Nope. Impervious.

    Sometimes wd40 removes glue from hard surfaces BUT if its plastic windows be careful as I have not tried it on them but think it should work test a small area first to make sure

    sticky stickers.

    oppps so now you have baked them on, grrr.
    Best thing I could suggest is leave them on you will probably do more danage trying to remove them now.
    Good luck whichever.

    I have a can of Label Removal Spray.

    Good for that sticky residue from headlamp beam benders, and labels.

    The sticker stays with the MH until the end.

    Well when the one didn't come off the windscreen, we didn't try the one on the plastic window! (which would have involved getting up off the passenger seat, unplugging the hairdrier, plugging it in again down that end .... )

    Just unplugged it and put it back in the house where it lives normally.
