Default window tint glue removal?

I got tired of the cave effect, so I peeled off the after-market tint on
the side windows of my 100. The tint came off easily, but it left
behind a layer of filmy glue. Any suggestions on how to best get
that glue off?

Go to a auto paint store. 3M makes an adhesive remover that is safe on paint, rubber and plastic. I think I have some around if you want to give it a try.
