Glue removal

I am trying to remove the clear 3M film from the front of my 2005 LY 396. The film removal is not to bad but the glue removal is not coming off . Has anyone done this and knows a product that works.

Products that do not work:
Paint thinner
Lacquer thinner
Goof off
WD 40

MEK would be my suggestion.

Work is never done, so take time to play!

You won't be able to find MEK at Home Depot, at least I couldn't here in St Pete, FL. Go to a good paint store (Glidden, Sherwin Williams). Be prepared to pay $!
Thanks, Derek

I have used brake cleaner to get the glue off .Spray it on and start rubbing it will come off.

You may find that denatured alcohol works well. You can purchase it at any paint store.
