Well you can try two things that should work (to my knowledge):
1. Use some kind of mild solvent to get the glue off -- like alcohol or the thing they use to clean marker boards -- be careful though, you don't want to get the paint off as well, right.
2. Try toothpaste -- a lot of people understimate the power of toothpaste , it's actually quite abrasive --- I use it to clean after I change the stickers on my laptop for example -- again, try not to ruin the paint. You might want to use a toothbrush along too

Before you do anything try to see what the effect would be on the paint by trying on some spot that is out of sight, and you can touch-up if smth goes wrong.

Goo-Gone or WD40 applied to a washcloth usually does the trick.

Goo gone, Just don't wait for ever to take the adhesive off like I did this time, otherwise you'll be out there forever.

If you remove the stickers with a hairdryer the sticky stuff isnt left behind. Well atleast it works with the manufacturer stickers, ones you put on. atleast for me, leave sticky stuff. Just heat thye stickers witha blow dryer and slowly ppel them off heating them the whole time. As for removing the sticky stuff I dont have a real solution. I used a face cloth with soap and water and scrubbed the hell out of it for a long time.

That's why I mentioned lighter fluid. Cheap.

Only on the left. On the right (as listed on the label) is a multi-purpose product.
