Go to a specialist cleaner / Valetters and find out what they use.
Some motorcraft places will have some sort of cleaners you can use.
Check Enbay for some ideas of prices.

    I use a product called "Top End" made by Surf City Garage. Follow the directions and it works great. I have a BMW Z4 I use it on, looks fantastic.

I just had a fuel pump and filter put on my 1993 ford exployer and the cadaylitic converters cleaned out but my engine light keeps coming on after it lurches for a moment around 60 miles per hour.

You cannot take apart the catalytic converters to clean them. They are sealed. If this was a shop that charged you for this service then find an honest competent shop to diagnose the Explorer. This almost sounds like an electrical issue (like arcing spark plug wires). If you open the hood in a really dark area, lightly spray some mist water onto the top of the engine while it's running and see small arcing sparks then it's time for new spark plug wires. You can do this little test for free before you take it to a shop.

2004 Beetle Convertible, rear window is getting unglued

I had the same problem with the window in my 2003 beetle convertible. I purchased 3m windo-weld super fast A10E2A and single step glass primer A13B5A also 3m. I ordered it online from Auto Body Toolmart. It was very easy to do and is in there really tight. Unlatch the top just enought to release the tension.
1. clean the window and remover any old glue with a razor blade
2. use acetone to make sure the rim around the glass is clean
3. apply thr gass primer and let dry
4. apply the glue which is black so put on a thin bead and I used gloves so I could make sure it was on both the window and also the fabric of the top. You must work fast because it sets up in 15 minutes.
5. Then take blue masking tape and secure the glass by taping all around the top. up and down and from side to side.
6. allow to dry for 6 to 12 hours. the clean off any extra glue with a razor.
The total cost was $39 dollars instead of having to buy a new tp

2003 bmw z4 top moves sluggishly

Asuming that you re talking about the convertable top. you can try two things. the motors some times do not get lubricated and over time the Grease on the motor gets tacky. By cleaning the motor and reapplying new grease and operating the motor a few times before reinstalling it to work in the new grease. If there is not improvement in the operation of the motor it should be replaced to bring the convertible top back to 'new' condition.
