ok so many years ago someone must have let a parking ticket slip down and cover the vin code at the bottom of the windscreen and I'm now (unsuccessfully) trying to remove it. I used tweezers to get the ticket out but part of it stayed stuck to it, I've tried a lot of things has anyone else got any ideas please?

Think you're going to struggle without removing the windscreen or dash.........  maybe use a slightly thicker piece of paper or card to push it right the way down?

Try. Wetting it to make the paper swell
you could try a broken junIor hacksaw blade or A thin piece if plastic from one of those toy boxs that are almost impossible to open

http://www.amazon.co...y stuff remover

I'd give something like that a go, maybe use cotton buds to apply it onto the sticker?
Use something similar at home for various things myself, was just called 'sticky stuff remover' but it got through the paper top and glue underneath.
