Cling wrap

I noticed this morning, the dealer did a pretty poor job of removing the protective cling film from my car.

There's a bunch around the door trim and the base of the seats. Is there a good way to get it off besides taking a knife to it?

If you are going to take a sharp object to it, I would recommend a new blade (for box cutters, etc) so you don't have to push too much and accidentally scratch/tear something

Looks kinda like Scotch tape, yeah?

Do not use a knife. Use fingernails and rubbing alcohol. It got mine off. It requires a good amount of scrubbing and scraping, but it's safer that way so you don't scratch anything.

Yeah, kind of like scotch tape.
The most annoying one is there'es like an inch or so it it sticking out from the plastic between the front seats and the center console. Not necessarily visible, but knowing that it is there bugs me.

And a little bit around the doors that should come out more easily. Thanks for the tip on the rubbing alcohol/

Oh dang, I thought you meant on the exterior on the chrome trim? I didn't know this was on the interior... Maybe don't use rubbing alcohol on that, then. Perhaps try some armor all spray or something similar, use some elbow grease and work it in, that could actually loosen the adhesive without damaging the interior.

I used rubbing alcohol and a microfiber cloth, and my fingernails, on the tape that was leftover on my exterior dark chrome trim.

If you're close enough I'd take it back and have them do it.

I had a bunch of this sticky cling wrap stuff too, around the base of the seats and the interior trim. I thought it was pretty odd that the dealer hadn't done a better job of removing it. I've never seen this on a new car before. WTF!?

I've been picking away at this stuff for months, still finding it. Some is very hard to get to and to pull off. 😬 Looks like shit (not "high end" at all).
