Have an auto detailer dry clean it for you. Not the car wash, a real detailer, like the hot rod guys use for their show cars. Super cheap and easy compared to a new door panel or speaker grille.

Cleaning foggy, oxidized headlight covers on my 2000 Subaru Outback with household items?nck AWD, 4 cylinder wagon...with?

Rubbing compound will buff off the oxidation that effects (clouds) the outside surface of plastics. Some waxes have a little abrasive that will help do this. Toothpaste will also work mixed with wax. Use some muscle and buff til it is dry to restore the plastic gloss. Shops use an electric or pneumatic buffer with a wool or foam pad and extra fine rubbing compound.

I cannot break the bolts loose on the front brake calipers. I have sprayed a lot of rust cutter and let it sit with no good results. Cannot change the brake pads without loosening these bolts.

use a regular propaine torch to heat the bolts (be careful not to melt anything else inthe process) then melt gulf wax onto the bolt. you will see the wax sucked into the rust, and bolt housing. the gulf wax does an amazing job to free up stuck bolts because of the way it permieates the rust. then while the bolt is still warm losten it. you can get gulf way at any hoby store or candle making place.

I had a pot of wax in my car it spilled over the seat

scrape off as much as you can with a dull knife or a credit card. Then use toilet paper to blot up the wax while you heat it with a hair blow dryer. Put the toilet paper on the wax and apply warm air above the paper. The wax will melt and absorb into the paper. This will get some more out but not all. To get the remnant of the wax caught in the cloth fibers, use naptha (lighter fluid) to dissolve the remaining wax and blot up with more paper towels or tissue. The naptha will smell some for a little while but since it is dry cleaning solution, it will evaporate quickly. The other choice for cleaner is electrical contact cleaning solution. It will dissolve the petroleum based wax and it evaporates without leaving a smell or residue behind. This technique should get out about 95% of the stain.

Chirping noise from engine compartment on 1993 Camry

Sounds like a drive belt. With the car off, rub each belt on the underside of the belt, one at a time, with wax from a candle or crayon.Cover the entire width of the belt and 10 to 12 inches of it's length then start the car. If it is the noisy belt it will change or eliminate the noise.Do this for each belt shutting off the engine each time.Change all the belts even if you find just one bad one as the others won't be far behind.
