Softening stiff old rubber


Recommended Posts

My Hymer has rubber strips around the top of the wheel arch mouldings, to cover up the fixing screws and with age these harden and make it impractical to pull then aside the access the screws.  I was once told by a rubber expert (from a tyre company!) that vulcanised rubber continues to vulcanise during its life and this causes hardening - is that what's going on here?


I feel sure that some of my fellow contributors will have discovered a way to soften them any ideas?  I'm sure my wife will have something in her make up cupboard which would serve but I'm reluctant to dive in there flying blind!
