If it'* burned in or melted in, give it up. Otherwise, I soaked mine in glass cleaner overnight (for sticky stuff) and then ran it through the dishwasher, with the hottest water possible.

Any car that'* been smoked in goes down in value because of the smell, the color change, the deposits, and stuff like you mentioned in the ash tray.
