NEW tire brush, 100% Simple Green Concentrate.. time.

Try getting some rubber mats to go over your factory pieces. That should help some..

No. I had some weird stain by the lower heater duct in my car, and I used a new tire brush, and some slightly diluted Simple Green [the extra effort was worth the money savings.. I am poor ya know]. Just don't get a big long-handled tire brush.. you won't get far with that. You need a smaller one.. maybe a shower/tile brush with the handle over the brush itself. HOWEVER, make sure the bristles are consistent with that of a tire brush.

Another possibility. Go to the local anything and get a can of Tuff Stuff (red and yellow). Only buy aersol, the other doesn't work as well.

Soak it pretty good, scrub with stiff brush. Wipe up.

I've used this for everything since I saw it take out gum. Hasn't hurt any thing ever. Buddy of mine spilled eggnog and tried to mop it up. 00 Grand Am with black interior....it looked horrible. Gave him a can and and towel. Minutes later he returned with a huge grin, then told me it worked great but he didn't care for the smell. I think it smells pretty good. Oh well...it did the trick.

You may want to take your car to a professional detailer that uses a quality steam cleaning machine.

Here is a link to the type of machine I am referring to.

I don't know about steam cleaning with oil. Oil is so thick, that may not be very effective. Or they may not do it, because it may damage their machinery [no clue on that.. just a thought]. I still vote on gold ol' fashion scrubbing..
