    Use a hair drier or heat gun on lowest setting (really careful with the latter) to soften the glue, then gently peel away using finger nails. Remove any remaining adhesive residue with a glue and tar remover (paint, Autoglym make one that is easy to get hold of) or methylated spirit (glass) using work towels. I'd also wash the car after using a glue and tar remover to remove all traces of it (and then top up the wax or sealant protection). :)
