Alright chaps, I'm having a load of bother trying to clean the soap scum out, I've used autosol, g2, Window Polish and nothing is moving it. Must be a few years of build up.

Aby ideas?

But becareful where you spray it as WD40 attacks some rubber compounds and plastics.

I would use some APC (All Purpose Cleaner)and an old toothbrush. Might want to dilute it a bit just incase it attacks the rubbers.

You could try one of those magic sponge's.

I use them a lot to clean various bit and pieces, also good for cleaning dead insects off the windscreen and headlights.

Wd40 on the chrome bits? Forgive my ignorance but how would that help?
WD40, apart from use as a lubricant and penetrating oil, is also a good cleaner for "sticky" residues. However, it damages rubber seals and some plastics. Caravan manufactures, for example, recommend the use of silicon spray lubricants and not WD40.

You know how you have the window seal and on most cars it's just rubber, well on the Mk1 kuga it has the a chrome strip over it.

OK, thanks. Wasnt sure if it was a MK1 or 2. The MK2 has a chrome strip too but doesnt seem to have any inaccessible place where scum could collect that I can see, so must be different.
