Are you about the CarMax sticker?
The CarMax sticker is a small square of paper that has been placed on your car window by an employee at a CarMax dealership during the purchase process. It contains information about your vehicle: its make and model, year of manufacture, VIN number, and other details that are important for identifying the vehicle. The sticker also contains contact information for the CarMax warranty department should something go wrong with your vehicle after purchase.
How to remove a CarMax bumper sticker?
Gather your supplies
You’ll need a razor blade, some Goo Gone or other solvent-based cleaner, dish soap and water, and some paper towels.
Examine the sticker
Take a moment to examine the sticker and decide which side you’d like it removed from. The easiest is usually the rear bumper because there are fewer curves and less paint around it than on the hood or trunk lid. If you don’t want to damage any paint or other surfaces by removing the sticker from that part of the car, make sure you’re prepared for this step before starting.
Use Goo Gone or other solvent-based cleaners
Apply Goo Gone or similar solvent-based cleaner directly over top of where you want to remove the sticker from using a dish brush, then let it sit for 15 minutes before scrubbing away with a sponge or cloth until all residue has been removed.
Wash the area with baking soda and water
To remove the CarMax sticker from your car, wash the area with baking soda and water. This removes any residue left behind by the glue that held the sticker in place.
Use a razor blade to take off any remaining sticker residue
