    Have just returned home after a trip to Ankara and discovered chewing gum above my rear wheel arch. The weather is hot so it's all sticky. Any ideas how to remove this **** from the car? Wanted advice before I attempt to remove it.

    I'd probably go down the old route of putting an ice pack on it then picking it off. If you've recently had the car waxed (think i saw your post recently about having your car fully detailed?), the gum shouldn't stick if it's cold.

    Exactly what I was going to suggest, get some ice cubes and make it hard!

    if the ice cubes can't stand the heat, use your fire extinguisher. Should freeze it instantly...lol


    anyway, you can also spray WD-40...some people suggest this

    use an old credit card to scrape it off.
