From reading around, this post sounds like... sound advice : http://www.nissanclub.com/forums/aut...ml#post4303977

Soak microfiber cloth in alcohol and dab the affected area (sap) to let the alcohol dissolve it. As little rubbing as possible.
And I'm sure WD-40 and Goo Gone are good - and safe - candidates for the job as well.

Thanks, all, for the suggestions. I tried rubbing alcohol (because I had it) on the windshield, and it cleaned right up with minimal elbow grease.

Goo Gone scares the bejeezus out of me, but I guess it must be safe. WD-40 is less scary, but it still seems like a solvent to me.

Googone. I have used this multiple times.

If you don't have Googone, you can use the rind of an orange to make ghetto Googone. Just squeeze the rind directly over the drop of sap so that the essential oils spray out. It may take more rubbing than real Googone since the essential oils are less concentrated, but it works in a pinch.

I work in auto glass. By far the easiest way to get ANYTHING off of a windshield is a (brand new) razor blade. hold at a 30 degree angle or so and just swipe it off. A little glass cleaner before you swipe goes a long way for helping the (powdery residue that sap turns into when it is dry and breaks up) sap not re stick to the windshield.

This also works wonders for bugs, stickers, decals, etc. The only thing you can hurt is the heater lines on the rear windshield from the inside or I guess the orange ones in the inside of the w/s... scraping the outside with a clean razor blade will not scratch the glass.

Good luck!

I tried everything including razar blading it off the clearcoat on my truck.. It worked, but found a simpler way...acetone ! These new clearcoats seem to be very durable, even took off pinstriping on my Bushtec pull behind motorcycle trailer with Original Easy Off oven cleaner. Hey I was desperate, so "at your own risk".
