How do you guys remove the tape??

Hey guys.
I recently bought a used diffuser and there is still a lot of tape left from the previous install. I see a lot of people selling and buying used parts with the tape still remaining cause its a pain to remove.

So to all the people that bought used parts with tape remaining. How on earth did you remove it??

Does it just take a lot of time and goo gone. or are you guys just taping over and no bothered by it.

I want to have a clean install and believe all or at least most of the tape should be removed and re taped for my install but its taking a long time and its getting to become a waste of time.

3M Adhesive Remover works really well. You can get it from

3m adhesive remover as others have said and the 3m rubber eraser wheel that you chuck up in a drill.
