Oil Leak Stain on Bumper - Cleaning/Detailing
 
Guys, when I first got my car there was some oil that would leak from the tailgate onto the bumper from time to time. After bringing it into the dealership, they said that was normal since it was just excessive oil that was used to lubricate the tailgate. Eventually the problem did stop, but it left an outline of where the oil would leak onto the bumper. Do you guys have any ideas of what to use to clean the bumper or have you guys experienced this yourself?

Also, if you guys have any cleaning or detailing tips please share. Looking to give the ride a nice spring cleaning....:thumbup:

There just was a post about "Liquid Clay" or something regarding exhaust dripping. Do a search.

The liquid clay bar I used was just for painted surfaces (rear aero kit). The bumper you're referring to is the black hard plastic, correct?

That is correct. It is that matte black bumper so there is slight outline from the oil. I don't think it would work on this type of surface since the clay bars for impurities on painted surfaces.

You can use claybar on the black bumper. Use lots of clay lube.
