use a little bit of goo-gone. Be sure to wash it off and rewax the area afterwards because goo-gone strips wax and probably isn't very good for the clearcoat if left on the paint for a long time.

Thanks guys i used a lil water first then i mixed a little bit of vinegar and water together and it helped, but then i used these 409 wipes i found and the rest came off after some eventual scrubbing then i just washed the door with soap. Thanks again for the advice .

try to find a tar and glue remover a local body shop will have some it'll get it off no problem. if not heat it up, not to much as it could take the paint off, then pressure wash it off and give it a polish after
