Goo Gone, Tardis, any tar/adhisive remover should move them

I came across Chizzler a few years ago and I've never found anything better for removing wheel weight glue. Soften the glue with White Spirit and scrape it off with a Chizzler. Won't damage the paint either.
It's also good for scraping off the Double Sided Tape residue left behind after Number Plates have been removed.

This isn't a sale of mine or anyone else I know !

AF ObliTarate works well and WD-40 can also work for dissolving glue

Soak make up pads with the tar/ glue remover and let's it soak in. It's a lot easier to remove it this way

^^ This. I've got a chizzler and they really are good for what really is just a simple piece of plastic.

I have a big packet of delrin guitar picks which I use for the same.

As for the OP, spray WD40 on the glue and let it soak for 10-15 minutes, it should come off easily.
