Go to hardware store buy bottle of goo gone orange cleaner and try that on a rag and it should do the trick I believe.

I googled and found it suggested goo gone and goof off 2. Goof Off 2 worked far better in my case.

Best luck, that stuff smells.

Spray or wipe on the solvent you choose. Don't let it run onto the deck carpet. Let it gel up. Than once it is nasty and gelly like just take some paper towels and start wiping it off.

When you get the greater majority of the goo off; finish with rubbing alcohol to remove the dried film it will leave. Than just wash the windows with windex or some window cleaner. Done. Enjoy.

Don't forget to wear gloves and possibly cover the rear deck for goo droppings.
