So today I just walked right into Mordor.

I don't have pictures or directions, it was pretty neat though.

OK ok here are the pictures

Start by soaking a napkin in ISO 98% alchohol leave on and let sit for 15 min

you should see the sticker wrinkle a bit
Start pealing in one of the corners

If you go slow enough you should get it off in one piece

You'll be left with a residue from the sticker ,I used goo-gone.

And there you go no more unsightly warnings.

Didn't think this is what you were talking about. We don't get that over here and thank god for that coz that is one ugly sticker! I had a transparent sticker in German on the top right of my windshield that was something to do with the air bag. Thought that's what you were saying. Fair one for removing it, I'm sure I would of done that the day I got it.

Probably will do the same, what new car doesn't have airbags in the front that they really need to have the warning. Any parent should know to put there asses in the back
