How to Remove Protective Film from Your Car Without Damaging the Paint

May. 11, 2023

Removing protective film from your car can be tricky as you don't want to damage the paint underneath. Here are some steps you can follow to remove the film without damaging the paint:

1. Use a hair dryer or heat gun to soften the adhesive on the film. Hold the dryer or heat gun about 6 inches away from the film and move it around in a circular motion for a few minutes. This will make the film easier to peel off.

2. Start peeling the film from one corner. Use a plastic scraper or your fingernail to gently lift the edge of the film. Make sure to lift the film slowly and at a low angle to prevent any damage to the paint.

3. Once you've lifted the edge of the film, use your fingers to pull it off the car. Continue to pull the film off slowly, making sure to keep it at a low angle.

4. If the film is difficult to remove, use a solution of warm water and mild soap to help loosen the adhesive. Apply the solution to the film and let it sit for a few minutes before attempting to peel it off again.

5. If any adhesive residue is left behind, use a solvent specifically designed for removing adhesive residue. Apply a small amount of the solvent to a clean, soft cloth and gently rub it over the residue until it comes off.

6.Once you've removed all the protective film and adhesive residue, wash the area with a gentle soap and water to remove any remaining residue.

7. Finally, apply a coat of wax or sealant to protect the paint and restore its shine.
