Hey i was just wondering if stickers and decals that are applied to windows are totally removable or not? Even residues or marks? If someone could help me out that would be great! Thanks!!

When I worked at the shop I had a big BFGoodrich and Warn decals on my rear windows. When I removed them after a few years it did leave a residues at first but that did come off little by little in a few months.

Most of it will come off. Depending on the decal material - paper decals will clean up with soap n water, vinyl will take something a little stronger.
I have always peeled what I can, then used a razor blade or push knife to get the big stuff. A little penatrating oil will loosen most vinyl glues, but could also stain your paint and rubber goods. Silicone spray works pretty well, too. The silicone will actually get between the glue and surface to break the bond. Clean the residue of the those products with glass cleaner.
STB mentioned the decals on the windows - I have found that, on aftermarket tint, the decal protects the tint from UV, and will remain dark under where the decal was. That's in the tint, and won't come out.

I got this stuff called rapid remover from a decal shop. Its awesome, its a citrus based product so its safe to use on the paint also for removing any sticky stuff left over from removing emblems and such from your ride!Richey
