Well, I did it. I went out yesterday and bought an Opal Sage Metallic/black EX-L w/Nav! So far, I love it. I thought my Saturn VUE was quiet and had a great ride, until I drove the CT. No comparison. I spent the day reading the owners manual and setting my seat, mirrors and radio presets. I'll tinker with the Nav and voice command stuff tomorrow.

Now to my "sticky" problem...

While I was admiring the gorgeous interior, I noticed a gaudy red-and-white air bag sticker on the front of the visor, so I decided to peel it off. Big mistake. It was not only a bear to remove, it left behind a white residue on the cloth. &^*&%$$#! It was only then that I noticed the other sticker...which I left alone.

So, my question is: Is there a way to remove that residue safely? If not, can I get another sticker to replace the one I removed? If so, where?

Sheesh...

I'm not aware of anyway to take it off cloth without leaving a stain.....I've used goo-gone on plastic or vinyl with no staining but can't say for sure if it won't leave something behind on fabric.

On the bright side, Honda would be happy to sell you another decal. Only it will be priced at 50 times what it is worth!

Actually, I read somewhere else on the net that duct tape can remove the residue. So, I tried it and, after an hour of dabbing, 99% of the gunk is gone. There is still a very faint rectangle where the sticker was, but it certainly doesn't draw attention to itself. Thankfully, I didn't touch the one on the passenger's side.

Now, should my perfectionism rear its ugly head and I decide to replace the visor (which I never thought of, by the way - thanks), how hard a job is it? Can you give me a step-by-step?
