    Can anyone tell me how to remove Tree Sap from paintwork? Have tried Auto Glym Intensive Tar Remover, but no good.

    Try detailing clay. Meguiars do a kit in Halfords, but you can get it as cheap as £12 on the tinternet.

    As Mark says...claying will remove the sap. Be sure to use a lot of lubricant like detailing spray or soapy water made from car wash

    i had this problem once, i used washing up liquid, worked a treat, but i would recomend a good wax after as the strong detergent will remove any protection you have on the paintwork.
