Hello ppl! Just want to know what you guys think is the best product to remove tar from the car without damaging the clear coat? Here in Puerto Rico, the government is always patching up the roads and I hate when it sticks to the car. Once it dries up, it is really hard to remove.

A good Car Wax will prevent and make it more easy to clean. Apply wax once a week on the rocker panel and wash with soapy water when needed. Have you even think of applying clear cover bra film !

Try using WD40. I sprayed that lubricant on some lower body panels 15yrs. ago on a Jetta after driving through some road work and the tar came off. Ever since then, any type of grease or tar that I see on the lower portion of the body, that's what I use.

good luck and be patient.

I've used WD40 in other cars and it works really fast. I was just wandering if it will damage the paint or clear coat of my Koup. This is really the first car that I had fall in love and could buy it. My other cars were out of necessity (VW Jetta because my wife wanted and then did not like it, Dodge Durango V-8 to haul family of 6) rather than what I wanted.

I've used WD-40 for some years now to remove tar (also any type decal residue) with no negative results, however when I do use it....I clean it off real good and apply a cleaner/wax to the same area.
