Good idea to try this on that foam/adhesive residue. Used it with great success before on emblem adhesive that was left after pulling badging.

Didn't work at all for my E61 pano roof seal's residue (just replaced with the updated seal). I had to go the old manual strip with fingers method. The wheel just made a huge mess.
