removing sticker from window with tint

I came home from school to find that my mom had put a parking permit sticker on my inside window that has tint on it. It's the kind of sticker that doensn't peel off easily. It's hard to explain, but when i try peeling it off, it's like a scratch ticket.. parts of the sticker scrapes off instead of actually peeling.

Any ideas on how to get this off without ruining my tint? Do you think the adhesive from the sticker will make my tint bubble up in the future?

Put peanut butter on it, let it sit, and wipe off. Then tell you mom to stay the f*** out your car.

The peanut oils in it will soak into the sticker and it should just wipe right off and wont damage your tint.

He said that his "mom had put a parking permit sticker on my INSIDE window that has tint on it." I dont know anywhere that has parking permits on the outside.

I just tried it two times... the first time i put it all over the sticker and let it sit for about 2 hours and then i tried peeling it off but it was stuck on just as strongly.

the second time, i put some over the sticker and drove for about 30 minutes with the heat at full and then tried wiping it off and it still wouldn't budge.

Any other ideas on how to remove this?

Hmm ive always had really good results with that. You need something oily that the sticker will absorb, thats why peanut butter usually works. Ive seen people use armorall or some other trim/rubber detailer with good results but ive never used it myself. It will probably take some scrubbing with a towel.

I would imagine GOO Gone would hurt the tint. Its some pretty harsh stuff and probably has ammonia in it.
