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.

Thanks

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