Removing via verde bracket
I have had to replace my via verde box. They are different designs and I now have to remove the old one. I cannot move it, has anybody any tips or done this themselves.
I have just received a new via verde too which will go up today. I hope the old one removes easily so following this conversation just in case.
I found it very difficult to remove. I got some thick cotton and sawed at it for quite some time before it came off.
Got it off. Came off fairly easily in the end, used a sharp thin bladed knife and cut up with a rocking rather than sawing motion.
No the units cannot be opened. This is why I had to get a new one. It lasted over eight years though so shouldn't be a problem for you for a while yet.
Warm the adhesive with a hair dryer and lever it away from one corner quite slowly. Continue warming and it will slowly release. Via Verde shops/outlets will sell you a new adhesive pad
Use a length of fishing line in a sawing motion between the pad and the windscreen. Once off a bit of nail varnish remover (acetone) will remove the remaining sticky stuff
