    hair dryer or heat gun.
    you can use some wd40 as a release agent or mineral spirits to remove any remaining glue.

    As was advised, warm with hair dryer, and peel. Any remaining glue can be safely removed with Goo Gone, which is around $3 at the hardware store.

    You're dropping your sportsworks rack? Heh, I was with you when you bought that at Supergo.

    Good times.

    Oddly enough, I just scored a Thule T2 rack. Gonna sell the XPort Flatbed rack.

    Rubbing alcohol is what I use to remove the glue after.
