How to clean silicone spray??

I use the silicone spray to lube the top seal. It works fine but it left some residue on my back windshield (glass). How to clean this mess up? Try Simple Green but doesn't work well.
Too bad, I can't find silicone grease at my local autozone/pepboys.... Anyone know where can I get the grease? Any specific brand I should look for?

xylene
Home depot paint section
Very strong wear gloves and wash hands with soap when done.Do not get on paint or rubber keep on rag.
This stuff will remove silicone from your clothing too.

Oh btw this also removes the glue left behind after you remove tint.

Did you check SEARS ? when I installed their water softener it came with silicone grease. Also good place to try - Home Depot.

Also I heard good stuff about this product http://www.303products.com/main.php?infopage=protectant
It also suppose lubricate rubber seals to prevent squeaks.

MB has a lubricant for the rubber and seals.
Part # A 001 989 50 51

Wipe down the rubber let it sit for 20 min. then wipe off.

Bit pricey at 20.00 but at least you know it wont hurt the rubber.

It solves all the creeks and squeaks.

I've been researching the whole sunroof maint thing.
This stuff Part # A 001 989 50 51 is damn expensive!
MSRP is like 40 + Dollars and you can get it online at some dealers for around 30+ shipping.

A friend who owns a detail shop mentioned the 303 stuff.
They make what called "Areospace Protectant".
303 Products Inc.: 303 Aerospace Protectant
which is the stuff you would use for the "rubber" seals.
Well if you read their lit, it's actually a different compound.

I wasn't convinced it would be the same as the MB stuff, so I called.
I spoke to a tech guy who said, the 303 stuff soaks into the
seals and restores the normal surface tension, and cleans the rubber, and should result in correcting the sqeaks.

But the MB part is specified as a lubricant.
When you go to order it from a dealer online it's referred to as "grease" but from what I've read, it sounds like it's not grease per se.

Also people have recommended the "Wurth gel stick" I think it's called.

If you go to 303's webpage you can get free sample of everything for $5 shipping, including a 2 oz bottle of the Aerospace Protectant

WHAT EXACTLY IS 001 989 50 51 ?????????

Auto paint shops sell a Silicone remover that wont harm paint. Its used to wipe panels over before painting. Here in Oz its called Prepsol

My car was just serviced. I had them lube the top. Thought I'd get a bottle. 49 bucks. Figured I'd wait till it needs it again.

Part # I have is A 000 989 36 60. Small bottle. You run a thin line down the rubber strip. Wipe in with your gloved finger. Let stand. Wipe off. If you think gas or oil is expensive, beware...like I said...small bottle.
