Don’t know if this will work for you but anytime I have to remove sticky residue I use WD-40 and then a good scrubbing with rough cloth. Good luck.

You can try to warm it up with a hair drier and use a scraper to take it off. I would not use WD40, but mineral spirit or acetone should work.

Maybe mineral spirits or Ethanol (denatured spirits) if the mineral spirits doesn’t work.

Another product for your memory bank is called Goo Gone. You can purchase it at most grocery and hardware stores. It removes the tape residue on just about anything quickly. I use it a lot on my truck when changing window stickers out…LOL…or if you buy something that has a sticker on it and you cant get it off. Its non toxic and can even be used on clothes.
