While taking out my quarter window trim I managed to get some of the sticky butyl window crap on my trim. Now I can't get it off. I've tried a bunch of different cleaners & none seem to do anything. Has anybody successfully cleaned this stuff?

I have a wax & grease remover & that didn't do anything. I don't have lacquer thinner though, so I'll get some & try that.

Try isopropyl alcohol. MEK will do it, but I would almost 100% bet it will also melt the plastic so try in an inconspicuous spot first!

Had the same issue on the plastic trims from my SS when I replaced the seals for the T Tops. Dealer answer to the leaks was to pack the areas with butyl to remedy the problem.
