My grand i10 has had the side door plastic guard readded recently and due to cheap double sided tape used it has started coming off. I hav got 3m taoe to restick it properly. But on pulling there will be double side tape stuck at many places. How to remove that so i get a clean surface to properly fix the door guards ?

You can use kerosene oil or a bit of petrol or warm engine oil to remove the tape bits. But do not try to remove them by peeling with your nails as that might cause scratches.

Kerosene/diesel works best.
Diesel dilutes the adhesive a bit which helps in buffing it off with a little effort with a dry cloth.

Do not leave them on paint for more than 2-3 minutes. Although there is no harm, but why to take risk. [:)]

I use coconut oil and knife to remove the tape amrkings. If you are careful, it is a breeze to remove the tape marks.

I have done this multiple times for cars that were decorated for marriage purposes

Buddy, using a knife might harm the paint. Please take due care of it and as well as your hand too[:)]
