    i used carb cleaner...just make sure you mop it up afterwards and pref have someone with VAgcom to recalibrate....otherwise it will take a few days to do it itself

    Hi ,
    you are talking about the polishing and not my other thread about cleaning injectors?

    I've bene meaning to get the full version of the vagcom software on my laptop as the one i got with can cable has minimal options unlocked.

    Polishing the outside? Some kind of dremel and then wet and dry along with maybe autosol.

    I would remove it myself.
