Removing Stick on antenna....

I used to have a scanner in my jeep that I have removed....
It used a "thru the glass, stick on type" antenna, the piece
that is on the outside is still stuck on, any ideas on how to remove it?

Re: Removing Stick on antenna....

You could use Jeepn's term and use the "Sledge and Tweak" method, but I would not recommend that.

Most of the glues used on glass are a form of SuperGlue. It's removable with acetone. The problem... getting the acetone to where the glue is.

Try a nice sharp pick (dental type) and pick away at some of the glue... and then start dripin' acetone into the area.

Or, try a nice sharp metal metal putty knife that you can use to slice the glue into submission. However, be careful... you can scratch the glass.

Re: Removing Stick on antenna....

If it's just held with double sided stick foam like many are, a razor blade works great. The windows on Jeeps are so flat that it's near impossible to cause a scratch with it. If it's some sort of other adhesive, spray a little carb cleaner on it and let it sit for about a minute, then yank it off.

Use a heat gun(or borrow your wifes/sisters/girfriends/mothers blowdrier) and heat the glass from the inside. That antenna will just about fall off.

Just be careful with that heat gun if you have any window tint close by...

Re: Removing Stick on antenna....

I you end up using a razor blade to clean the residue off, keep the area wet with water or glass cleaner to help reduce scratching the glass, even if it's flat glass.
