    I have never waxed my truck, but the dealer must have! There is white residue of car wax on one of the plastic side vents in front of the front doors. I assume there is a product to remove this?

    Use some Tire & Rubber Cleaner with a microfiber towel. If the residue is deep in the texture of the plastic a small detail brush or soft toothbrush can be used to scrub it out with the Tire & Rubber Cleaner.

    I have had some success removing the residue with a pink rubber pencil eraser. This has been my go to for years on textured black/dark plastic surfaces. I keep one of the large erasers with my wax kit. Check YouTube. You should be able to find some videos there too. Good luck!!

    Peanut butter, really! I've tried the eraser with mixed success, but peanut butter works.
