    The hood on my A209 CLK 350 has some faint green streaks which could be some mould and no matter how much I shampoo it with a baby brush it will not budge.
    The hood is otherwise in excellent condition so I need some product recommendations to deep clean it, maybe colour restore and seal it.
    I have already used wonder wheels convertible roof cleaner which was useless.

    Many thanks.

    I've never used them myself but these products get consistently good reviews.

    I've managed to get green mouldy stuff off in the past with a nailbrush and fairy liquid solution.
    Surprising how much green water then rinses off.

    Had the same problem with mine, used Autoglym as above but washed it 3 times, then reproofed it. I think the secret is to wash it fairly often.

    I have tried 2-3 reputable products to clean my hood on my A4 Cab, Renovo Products get my vote everytime.
