Bleach won't touch grease and oil. Use a commercial degreaser, or citrus/simple green type product. It works. Proof in my sig.

Did you try using dish water soap, like Joy or something. That always helpes to get the grease & oil out of my clothes. Also try oven cleaner spray. Spray it on & let it sit for a little bit, then wash off. That might work.

If you really want to clean them up, take them off and pressure wash them with a good detergent. Do this, of course, while they are off of the car. Trying to pressure wash them on the car might entertain electrical problems and you will never get all the gunk off of the rear cover.

Scrub it up with a good dish soap, if it'* still stained ...Paint It.

If you look at my SC covers, you'll see I painted them

I think they look great in a contrasting color. The stuff I used was 'Cast look'. Looks like metal. Really sets it apart. After painting, I just sanded down the paint on the lettering to the plastic beneath.
