I second that, vegetable oil works wonders on all kind of labels.
Especially if you have the kind that comes in a spray can (not kidding).

Warm it with a hair drier, not heat gun (too hot), but warm up the whole
glass first, then concentrate on the stickers.

Re: I can't remove my Forester's window stickers !
 

Thanks again for all the suggestions.

I just had a chance to remove them last night
and it took me over an hour using a combination
of heat (hair dryer), thinner and a razor blade.

It was the razor blade that did most of the work.
