I can confirm the obnoxious bright yellow seatbelt warning labels that come on the sun visors are easily removed with Goof Off. Dab some on a cotton towel, hold the towel on a corner of the label, then gently wipe the towel across the rest of the label. Start peeling at that corner by lifting...

I have beige visors and used 70% isopropyl alcohol and a clean terry cloth towel. Working slowly, ~10 minutes a visor, I removed both stickers without much trouble while still in the vehicle. Then took a vacuum to each to straighten out any small wrinkles. Looks great to me, and no residue left over.

I finally got the nerve to try this today on Beige Cloth Visors and got the same perfect results as bwest using his same method (I didn't get wrinkles though, I may not have wet them as much).

No more damn picture of the baby with goo shooting out of him in my car!

I did this yesterday with Goo Gone. I have a 2008 with beige vinyl. It took about 15min total to do both. The technique I used was to moisten a microfiber towel and just 'scrub' the sticker off. There was no bleeding or stretching, only a few rolled up sticker pieces to clean up once complete.

Don't sweat this one, I was nervous going into it, but came out looking perfect with very little effort.

I just did this with my 328i sedan with sport/prem. I used a cloth wet with 91% isopropyl alcohol which I just had in the medicine cabinet. Once I wet the cloth, I just scrubbed over the sticker and it started to peel/disintegrate. Came off with just a few scrubs.

I wish I would have known it was this easy for all of my previous cars...

I just did this on my 07 e93 and made a video. It's extremely simple if you use right tools.

My M3 came with cheap vinyl visors and the weasel warnings. I took the easy route and ordered the European version - cloth and no lawyer's language. Looks a lot better.

so it was really weird, i used accetone on my vinyl sun visors to get the labels off and the passenger side worked flawlessly, however the driver side wouldn't work worth a shit... so i bought goof off and still nothing.it leaves white and just tarnishes the vinyl. what now?
