How to remove tape residue

The residue are on the windshield and the part on top of it. I have already tried to use a hairdryer to heat it up to remove it, but it didn't work.

WD-40 works very well on tape residue

Some glues can be removed with rubbing alcohol on a rag. Others can be removed with lighter fluid on a rag. Substitute gasoline for lighter fluid if you don't mind the smell. Good luck with it!

I'd scrape what I could with a single edged razor blade, then use Goo Gone on a terry cloth rag.

Try using silicon spray. That's always my go to remover. If that doesn't work then use the goo gone or similar. Acetone might work also.
