Sun Visor Sticker Removal Reccomendation
 
After "researching" here on the forums I tried using NAIL POLISH REMOVER and COTTON BALLS to remove these stickers. (The Airbag warning stickers on the sun visor)

They came right off but did leave a bit of shiny residue.

For removal of the residue I sat a half-nail-polish-saturated cotton ball ontop of a shiny part, let it sit there for 30-60 seconds, then scrubbed it in a circular motion with a paper towel.

Not sure if anyone actually cares, but if you haven't removed your stickers it is an easy and free DIY. (Don't expect your visors to look perfect though!)

Since the ZHPs and M3s come with cloth visors it's actually a little easier. Use a hair drier to heat up the sticker, and start peeling at the corner. Pull gently as the glue melts. If you're good, it should come off as a single piece.

There will be residue in the shape of a sticker left over. What I did to get rid of that was to use a steam press to heat up, and then a towel to lift the glue. Had to repeat that process a few times. Can barely tell the stickers were ever there now

would an iron be an okay substitute for a steam press?

I don't see why not.
