    Citric acid is great with adhesives, but be careful and test it first on a hidden surface of the same material. I used citric acid to remove nicotine stains from sun visors, and the plastic on those did not react bad with citric acid, and the visors are probably clad with the same pleather as the dash.

    Thanks for the tip Thomas! I’ll try that too. I’ll test for colourfastness on spare trim first with whatever I use. It would be a shame to ruin a perfectly good dash in the process.

    try some 3m adhesive remover on a cotton cloth. I use it on painted surfaces with no issues.

    Vinegar works well and is safe for nearly everything including leather. Nice job on the wheel. I don't like shiny leather/plastic either so that limits many products.

    Gents - thankyou for the suggestions. I will be sure to try those methods and report what worked best. Drew- if you can get Dodo Juice leather products over there give them a go! They are the best I’ve used and leave no shiny residue.

    More bad news... the Lemforder engine mount for M119 (MB # 124-240-26-17 or Lemforder 1085001) appears to be OOS everywhere in USA, and possibly NLA? These had been ~$100 or less in years past.

    The mounts appear to still be available from MB but at insane pricing, $298 USD list, ~$225 discount.

    The mounts are cheaper in Europe, €160 list (excl. VAT):
