Easily Remove a Custom Parking Permit Sticker from Your Bumper


At Rydin, our customizable bumper-style parking permits are guaranteed to last for a minimum of one year, when applied correctly. We recently received an inquiry on how to remove a parking sticker from a vehicle bumper at the end of that year. Outlined below are a couple suggestions for removal, as well as, the items you will need. You can find our previous blog post on how to remove Window Parking Permit Stickers and Decals by clicking here.

When to Remove Your Bumper-Style Parking Permit Sticker:

The best time to remove bumper or window parking permit stickers is in the summer, when the heat will help loosen the adhesive and make the sticker easier to remove.

How to Remove A Bumper-Style Parking Permit Sticker:

The WD-40 Method

What  You Will Need:

  • WD-40
  • A lint-free cloth
  • Rubber Gloves
  • Optional: Rubber Spatula

First, test a small area where it won’t be noticed to make sure the vehicle’s paint won’t be damaged.

Put on your rubber gloves, spray the WD-40 onto the rag and rub the edges of the sticker until it begins to peel. Carefully peel off a corner of the sticker with your fingers or the rubber spatula. Continue applying WD-40 to the exposed part of the sticker to help ease removal. Do not pull the sticker directly up, instead fold the corner of the sticker against the face of the sticker and slowly peel. Once the sticker has been removed, clean the newly exposed area to remove any residue.

The Goo Gone/Goof Off Method:

What You Will Need:

  • Goo Gone/Goof Off
  • A lint-free cloth
  • Rubber Gloves
  • Optional: Rubber Spatula

First, test a small area where it won’t be noticed to make sure the vehicle’s paint won’t be damaged.

Put on your rubber gloves, apply the Goo Gone/Goof Off onto a rag and place it over the sticker (alternately, you can spray it directly onto the sticker itself.)  Allow it to soak for several minutes.  Carefully peel off a corner of the sticker with your fingers or the rubber spatula. Do not pull the sticker directly up, instead fold the corner of the sticker against the face of the sticker and slowly peel. Once the sticker has been removed, clean the newly exposed area to remove any residue.

The Warm Rag/Washcloth Method:

What  You Will Need:

  • A clean rag or washcloth
  • Warm Water
  • Optional: Rubber Spatula

Wet the cloth with warm water and place the cloth on top of the decal. Soak the decal with warm water for approximately 15-30 seconds. Then, peel one of the corners of the decal with your fingers or a rubber spatula.

Precautions:

A number of methods suggest using a blow dryer to help loosen the adhesive on a parking permit sticker or decal. At Rydin, we recommend you take precaution with this method, as the heat from the dryer can cause damage to your vehicle’s paint or may cause the sticker itself to melt. Use low heat only! The blow dryer should always be placed several inches from the surface of the car.
