WD40 is just a lubricant, it isn't going to do anything to your paint job

I need some WD40......but have you ever tried soap? or goo gone? goo gone works great on spots on your car.....and it won't hurt the paint....

WD40 can wreck paint if you let it sit on there forever...

For tar removal, its fine...

goo-gone and WD40 work great, especially for Tar/Grime removal.

i recommend right after removing the residue, that you please use a nice coat of wax to cleanup.

better safe than sorry..

WD40 is not a lubricant. It is simply a degreaser. Lubricants don't remove rust. And a simpler way to remove that black stuff is the Auto Grade Goo Gone. You can buy it in the Auto department at Wal Mart, K-Mart, and Target. OR Rubbing alcohol with a high percentage of Isporyl in it, above 90%. And no, WD40 does not wreck paint with clear coats, the clear coat is resistant to it unless soaked for 24 hours.

I see lubricant here in a couple places, in NO part do I see degreaser.

i would recommend goo-gone. i used it yesterday to shave my emblems and get rid of these plant chemical black marks (due to parkin next to bunch of plants) all over my passenger side paint (door/side skirt). so far, no damages or effects. make sure u rinse loose dirt first.
