New Tax Disc Holder

20 posts in this topic

Hi,

I've got a new metal ford tax disc holder for my fiesta :P I need to get the old one off but I'm sure it will leave all the goo and glue behind any ideas how to get it off or avoid it?

Cheers

This stuff is pretty good for removing the adhesive 'goo', used it when I removed the dealer sticker from mine last week:

I used a heat gun to remove Evans Halshaw's brutally bad sticker from my drivers side screen.

Nice! I've had mine for about a year and its still stuck like glue :)

If you want tomorrow I'll post some pics up of the sticky bits (if any) before & after because I'm thinking of taking of my parking permit off (which I no longer really need and it'll make my windscreen look tidier!)

Doesn't it annoy you when you see cars with tax discs held on with sticky tape?

Scruffy and lazy.

Much tidier, I have never been tempted to use holders supplied by some Insurance companies, I think they get enough advertising without my help.

I ripped my dealer sticker and dealer tax disc holder off while I was at the dealer picking my car up so they don't have time to weld themselves to my windows. He didn't look too impressed lol.

No me either. I just put the holder they give me in the glovebox as it usually has the breakdown cover number on it just incase I ever need it!

This was just for a parking permit I had to use for a while out in the car park next to my mum & partners house as we have a shared driveway round the back but the old neighbours thought it all belonged to them! So once they moved I rightfully took the space that belonged to us and we now have lovely new neighbours. :D

I can imagine haha!

When I got mine it had the tax disc holder, a sticker for when the car was due its next service and a bleeding solid sticker on the boot below my zetec s badge!!

I had a ford sticker on the inside ofmy rear window.

Right at the bottom, where the window wiper is.

So well done to my dealer. Hid it from view and stuck it on the window which is privacy anyway.. that came straight off and left no marks!
