My dashcam came with a little piece of string to remove the mount--haven't had to use it so far. There will be some sticky residue left behind which can be removed with some lighter fluid (naptha) or goo gone along with a rag and some elbow grease.

Problem is more on a hot sunny day that 3m stuff can just let go when parked and baking for awhile. I've had better luck with the Gorilla double sided tape.

Thanks, I hope the dotted area just behind the rear view mirror won't come off!

You will have to scrate in between the dots with your nails or hard plastic! If you use a blade, you will scrape off part of the dots too.
Try goo gone like others have suggested. Maybe even plain alcohol.

You could also try WD40, it's a panacea for all things gooey/sticky! :wink

Thanks guys, will get Goo Gone & WD40 as standby :D!

WD40 works well for this kind of stuff but I would suggest that you spray some on a rag and wipe/rub the glass. Don't spray it directly on you windshield, it will go to places you don't want it to go and make extra work wiping it up.
