Tree Sap

As i pull out of teh car wash today I notice I got this white tree sap all over the hood of my car and windshield.. So immediately i turned around and went back through the car wash to have them remove it.. (I was on my lunch break and i didnt wanna wait till saturday morning to clean my car) They tell me they do not want to remove it because they dotn want t scratch the paint from the hood.. what can i use to get it off i dont picture this being a very complicated fix..?

ANother problem i am having is that i keep getting streaks of some sticky shit/ white lines whenever i roll down my window.. what should i do!!!!!!!

Re: Tree Sap

Thats tree sap on the window too. I get that a lot. Best thing is bug, tar, and tree sap remover (which is a degreaser). When I go to wash the car I wet the front bumper than spray the bug, tar, and sap remover and let is sit for a little bit. I'll wash some other part of the car and come back to it and It comes off easy. Sometimes for the roof I have to spray it on and rub it out with the car wash mit.

Re: Tree Sap

You guys would cry if you saw my friends 01 XJ. Besides the fact that its black and the paint already sucks, it lived under a pine tree during the nice weather when he drives his motorcycle. This thing is covered in tree sap. Its horrendous how bad it is. You cannot even use the wipers. I am going to help him get it clean and force him to park it in the street and not under the tree in the drive way. i will try and take before and after pics.
