    Tar and glue remover. Spray on and the tar will run off, may need a rub with a cloth on the more stubborn bits.

    Autoglym intensive tar remover - I was amazed how well this worked first time I tried it - just blob it on and the tar just trickles off a few moments later

    Do you need to wax/polish after using tar remover?
