Product Description

3M Adhesive Remover - Aerosol
Helps remove tar, attachment tape and bumper sticker adhesive


  1. Spray liberally on surface to be cleaned. On vertical surfaces, do not apply to the point that product starts to run off.
  2. Allow a few seconds for the remover to penetrate the adhesive or contaminants. On areas where the adhesive or contaminants are thoroughly dry, keep the adhesive or contaminants wet for several minutes by repeated applications of remover.
  3. While the surface is wet, wipe with a clean, dry cloth. Note: Pressing hard may cause surfaces to dull.
  4. Repeat application if necessary.
  5. Apply 3M Performance Finish (PN 39030) to the entire vehicle for a full season's protection.

Note: On painted surfaces, the paint must be cured and the surface cool. Test for potential surface damage by applying to an inconspicuous area first. Use in well-ventilated area. When cleaning an adhesive from vinyl surfaces, soak the adhesive with a saturated rag and wipe gently. DO NOT RUB VINYL.

  1. Try peeling the sticker or tape off with your fingernail or soft plastic tool. If it releases from car surface, remove and follow Directions For Use. If not, proceed.
  2. Heat up the edge of the sticker or tape with a hair dryer. Keep the hair dryer moving to avoid overheating the paint. This will soften the adhesive so that you can pull up a corner.
  3. Slowly peel back sticker or tape. Apply more heat as necessary.
  4. Once sticker or tape is removed follow the Directions for Use.
