Wash it and use a clay bar with detail spray.

My XJ got covered in tree sap last fall (on the hood, roof, side, rear window, and plastic bumper caps.) I tried Dawn, Goo Gone, and at least one tar/sap/grease remover. Nothing worked.

Then I used 90% Isopropyl alcohol. It melted the sap and it wiped right off!!

Clay bar, bug tar remover, if all else fails alcohol. Just keep in mind the tool you use for removal... a nice microfiber cloth won't mess up the paint too bad. And anything that will remove tree sap, especially dried tree sap, will also remove your wax, so wax it up good when you're done.

(I love detailing my Jeep, can you tell? )
