Tree Sap on hood

1305 Views 5 Replies 5 Participants Last post by  ALX
Hello All,

I was wondering if anyone could suggest a cleaner to remove some crusted tree sap without damaging my M5's finish/paint. So far, I've used Goo Gone (citrus cleaner) to remove the majority of the sticky goop of the sap. But as I've said before, now all that remains is a hard crust that Goo Gone will not remove.

Any ideas?

you might be able to use a tiny drop of gasoline- apply a tiny drop of gas to a cloth and then try to gently rub out the sap on the hood. no matter what happens you want to immediately afterwards wash the car. then I suggest you at least wax the hood. this worked for me a long time ago on a honda so I dont know if it will work with the newer bmw paints. a suggestion before you try this is to call your dealer.
