Default Super Glue

Very difficult, and be very careful, as you might end up removing clear coat, but you could try a diluted solution of very hot water (70/30%) and nail varnish remover, but do it slowly.

I got a drop on my bonnet and nothing has removed it, my advice would be if it's only a tiny bit, leave well alone , or you could end up having to repainted the whole panel.

Wait until it's really, really cold, it might chip off with minimal damage. Superglue does not do well in cold temperatures.

Yes that's my understanding- never tried it but it may be worth a gentle application of a freeze spray as localised as possible on the glue spot

This may get it to "pop off"

No experience of this - just a suggestion if it really is unsightly- if it isn't I would leave well alone as others have suggested

'Fraid it's not called 'super' for nothing, but there's loads of expert advice available.

Can of freezer spray. It's coefficient of expansion is such that it'll most likely crack and come off fine.
