as with all stickys the screen should be cleaned with ipa or similar first to remove all dirt/oil/contaminants that could prevent proper adhesion Thumbs Up 

also you can peel off the transfer paper in the same way i did the backing to make sure no letters come away with the transfer paper 

if a letter comes away with the paper as your peeling it off slowly then press it back down and try again till it does stick but as i say the surface your sticking to needs to be properly cleaned with alcohol based cleanser Thumbs Up

...and clean the area with methylated spirits before applying to the surface you're sticking it to.

NB: DO NOT use white spirit as that is oil based and will leave a trace behind. Thumbs Down

Hmmm, this thread reminded me to do ours (well to get the missus to do it). Only took me a month to put it on. LOL

A couple of extra tips:

i) Make sure you remove the correct backing.

ii) Make sure you smooth the removed backing carefully before re-applying it to the wording.

iii) Remove the other backing carefully reattaching any letters that haven't quite re-adhered to the original backing.

iv) Re-apply to cleaned window and it should then stick properly.

v) Before attempting any of the above first TURN ON GARAGE LIGHTS!

Embarrassed LOL

PS:  vi) Get focus properly adjusted so that it doesn't make the reflection sharp and the object slightly blurred. Confused

A little tip.

If you find any area of the logo not sticking down properly (like the little tail of the 'Q') then just use a hair dryer to apply some heat for a few seconds and gently smooth it down with the back of your finger nail.

Don't apply too much heat or apply it for more than about 5 seconds. You just need enough heat to soften the adhesive on the logo.

Question:  Where have you positioned your club sticker?


I have mine (like many of you) at the top centre of the rear window.

I'm just a bit worried though that the rear wiper will sweep across it.



I did think about sticking it to the boot lid just below the chrome 'Qashqai' logo, or just below the number plate (L - C - R).

Has anyone placed the sticker elsewhere other than top-centre of the rear window?

I have one under the brake light sticker, and one each o the front wings, to remind me of my sponsors in my boy racer days!
 
The ones on the wings are good for other Qashqai owners to see when along side them at the traffic lights etc.

Bless... that was way back in the dim and distant past... .......

As for Allans point of the wiper sweeping across it.. It does ,but doesnt peel the sticker off in the process.....
The biggest risk is inadvertantly scraping it off in icy conditions.

Me too. Still waiting for the car but I thought that the sticker would be "reversed" and go on the inside of the window. To be honest I am not sure I will fit it now. It may just have to be my "bike aware" sticker in the back of the car.

as some models have tinted windows sticking on the inside is not an option , so we have always done them this way Thumbs Up
