I have had those volvo prancing moose magnets off and on for the last nine months or so with no problems. Then yesterday I took them off after being on for 2 weeks and there was a residue left!!...Anyways i recalled some other people saying they had the same issue. Any solutions or ideas?

Re: Residue From Volvo Magnets! Help? (Modernman)

I remember finding residue underneath mine when I took them off about four months ago. I never figured out how to remove it, but I think the passed time and various car washes removed it for me. If you can't find a solution, time will help.

I hear offering a Heico wheel setup sacrifice to another member will remove any residue on your car and bring you many children. So I volunteer to receive the sacrifice. <IMG NAME="icon" SRC="http://www.vwvortex.com/vwbb/wink.gif" BORDER="0"><p>Have you tried clay bar?

Water with a bit of heavy duty goo gone to get the worst of it off first because the residue can scratch the paint (i learned the hard way on my first car with full body graphics.) Once the worst is off with the mixture, straight goo gone and microfiber towel. Don't be afraid to put some elbow grease into it!

Re: Residue From Volvo Magnets! Help? (Mach_T5)

Revolve: I do remember someone saying that they disappeared with time, but i find that hard to believe...sure would be cool tho ha<p>Carreragt7: Hahah! Hmmm tempting...but not sure im ready for many children lol <IMG NAME="icon" SRC="http://www.vwvortex.com/vwbb/wink.gif" BORDER="0"> Never thought about the clay bar, i'll give that a shot<p>Eng Tech: Already tried nu-funish scratch remover, no dice. But it seems as if i pissed someone off upstairs cause my car got coated in tree sap so I'm gonna try turpentine. Oh and i'm gettin around to change that cabin air filter lol <IMG NAME="icon" SRC="http://www.vwvortex.com/vwbb/rolleyes.gif" BORDER="0"><p>Mach_t5: Sweet, im gonna go try that right now<p>Thanks again guys <BR><BR>

Use the residue to find the proper location of where to replace the magnets. <IMG NAME="icon" SRC="http://********************/smile/emthup.gif" BORDER="0"> <IMG NAME="icon" SRC="http://www.vwvortex.com/vwbb/biggrin.gif" BORDER="0">

Careful with the goo gone on straight paint. I used it to remove tar from my door-it worked, but I took some paint with me. Test it in your door jam or something first. Good luck.

Re: Residue From Volvo Magnets! Help? (Revolve40)

Goo Gone helped a little....but Revolve you were right, it seems as if the residue is just fading <IMG NAME="icon" SRC="http://www.vwvortex.com/vwbb/biggrin.gif" BORDER="0">
