Got the quarter windows out of the car and have some of the sealant still on the glass. Just wondering what is the best thing to use to get this sticky stuff off?

A new razor blade removes stuff from glass very well.

If you still have the trim on the glass, don't use a razor blade. You could cut the rubber on the trim and ruin it.

I have used this method many times. It is much cleaner than using solvents. The only thing is your hands will probably turn black from the sealer. After you get the majority of it off like this, then I would recommend 3m adhesive remover to clean the rest off.

Good Luck,
