Default Help needed removing glue

I need some help removing the glue after removing the badge from my car.
I tried deodrant spray, soap solution and even bought a bottle of Lakme nail polish remover.

After a few broken nails this is the best I could achieve:


Any suggestions?

FOXBAT: Try WD40 (Small can shud cost about Rs 60/-) Spray & leave it for few minutes before wiping hard with some cotton cloth (slightly sprayed with WD40). Try used vest cloth (baniyan).

Try Shampoo (The human-hair kind not the car kind). Worked for me. Got the tip from a paint-shop. Don't use Thinners they most probably will ruin the paint. Hope it helps!

You could try Diesel as well. It may work.

You may use diesel/kerosene/petrol to remove the residual glue.

Once the glue is gone, soak a soft cloth in an automotive shampoo and rub the areas so that the kerosene/diesel won't have any after effects.

(I use a cap of Car shampoo (~20ml) in a 'colin' bottle filled with mineral water, it works wonders for me.)

Oops I only read ariesonu's reply and then headed out to Reliance Auto World for a can of WD40 . Thanks everyone for the advice.

I didn't find WD40 but I did find a Rs.65 sticker remover spray(450ml) that worked fine.

Unfortunately after removing the badge there was an impression since my car is almost 6 years old. Covered it up with a Got Bhp? sticker

Has anyone successfully debadged a VW or Skoda rear? The logos are carved into the boot body and leave an ugly gaping depression when the logos are stolen.

I debadged my ride a few minutes ago.

It was standing in the hot sun from morning, we went to my car for some other work.
It was during this time I thought I'll do the debadging.
As many have told here, I knew that removing using a thread is the best way.
Now I thought to myself "In the office...where shall I go and get a thread, a hair dryer for this"
The sun was my natural hair dryer for heating
My ID card holder with the long winding thread which was tangling from my pant came to my mind.
Woila!! I had all the tools needed.

The badge removal was just like cutting a block of cheese.
Within a minute the "PUNTO" and the "EMOTION" stickers were off my cars rear.

Some stains of the sticker are remaining.
I'll clean the car once and then post the pictures soon.

IMO, the Punto & Linea look superb in their original avatars. Apart from removing the "name" I guess you don't gain much, unlike de-badging other makes!
