Welcome to the Expats Portugal forum!

Since 2005, this forum has had over 6,000 people sign up and take part in our community.

It is a place for people who want to move to Portugal and for those already living here to meet and share knowledge through our community.

With the recent revamp of the site, we have chosen to keep the forum on the website rather than create a social media group as we know there are people concerned about privacy and who owns their data. Plus there is a wealth of information from the years gone by that we did not want to lose.

But this forum is nothing without your input. So come on in, take a look around, ask questions and answer a few.

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
