They are intentionally made to be non-removable. Automakers are instructed to make all government warning labels "tamper resistant". I haven't tried it myself but some in here have said that a hair dryer will soften the glue and help make the removal clean. Like I say though... I haven't tried it. I didn't want to end up with a giant glue spot sunvisor.

Try Goo Gone, it takes a little elbow grease but it works.

I did the same thing and it is good to know that I can buy something to get rid of that glue that is there.

Do not even try it on the 08 sun visors. I almost screwed one up by trying to get the gunk off after I peeled it. That stuff will NOT come out of the material, period. Goo Gone will not remove it all. I even tried pure acetone.....

I had to make some custom vinyl Z71 Off road labels to cover up my mess up....

Just leave them on and make a vinyl label to stick over them of your liking.......

I am not 100% happy with the color match, so I will remove one visor and take to the computer to match it better later on.. But, I like it....

I did mine with a color laser and some special polyester labels from a place called desktoplabels.com

I removed mine by heating them for a couple of minutes with a blow dryer on the hottest setting. They peeled off easily enough but some adhesive residue remained which doesn't bother me. I chose to remove mine because they look rediculous imho and I don't need a sticker to explain the obvious.

I used an iron with a shirt over the visor. It got almost all the glue out of the visor, but its not something I will do to any future trucks.
