Toll Pass Removal


My automatic toll pass failed and I have a new one.
It uses a different mount to windscreen, so would like to remove old one.
It is stuck solidly on metal mesh area at top of windscreen. Don't want to damage mesh- advice please.
Thought of hair dryer heating but ineffective. Think heat gun will damage glass

Re:


I'd try a razor blade, cutting closest to the pass holder leaving most of the glue and mounting tape on the glass. The try metho to soak the rest of the sticky stuff off.

I got my exy second hand, and there is slight residue where a toll pass has been, so it must be possible.

Cheers,
Mark

Re:



Remove as much as you can by pulling it off, then try either of the 2 following options;

1. Eucalyptus oil will remove most (if not all)_ sticky residue.
2. Also there is a citrus based one that Repco sell if that is the prefered smell

Re: Toll Pass Removal


If you can't pull the mounting plate off by hand then use a length of fishing line as a saw to cut through the double-sided tape between the mounting plate and the glass.
Then you can use any of the goo removers suggested by the others to clean the rest off.

Re: Toll Pass Removal


Thank you all.
I used the hair dryer, then the fishing line then the eucalyptus oil- much better.

Re:


Ahh good.
Another one for other people without fishing line. Carefully~ use the blade from a box cutter knife to separate the item from the glass (or other surface). Then clean the leftover off.

Re: Toll Pass Removal


Hi All,

In regards to this should a toll tag (govia tag in my case) be stuck on the black windscreen shade material behind the rear-view mirror or will that mean the black material will tear off when/if the time comes to remove the tag?
