    Grease in door shuts..

    Hi All,

    My car went in for a service couple of months back and Audi kindly covered all my hinges in the doors, boot and bonnet in sooo much grease it has covered all my paintwork at the same time in nasty sticky black grease! Whats the best product to get rid of this?

    Thanks,
    Dan

    If that fails, WD40.... It is excellent for cleaning off heavy deposits....

    Just remember to re-lubricate. WD40 is solvent based so will not lube the hinges.

    Tar and glue remover will remove any grease with ease.

    I'm a big fan of GT85. Cleans grease up a treat and also lubricates. Leaves a nice invisible teflon coating to which sh1t wouldn't stick, pretty sure my bank manager bathes in the stuff.
