Bill1964a @ Sparkyjeep-- Dielectric grease? They make that? Kinda sounds like electrical oil to me. I'm sure it's beneficial in some way but I wanted to be able to test continuity so I could trace which socket pin went to which fuse and/or relay. I ended up buying a new fuse block expansion and two relays. And "blacksmithing" an old VCR chasis into a rectangular box for the mess. I'll post a pic soon. It's starting to look like an orc warbuggy under the hood.....

Bill1964a Zurn-- I'll try this, but my suit really binds under the arms when I'm on the creeper. Also can't get much traction in dress shoes.

Zurn I have found the best way to get grease off anything is to wear my best clothes around that particular part.

sparkyjeep i used to work for honda (they make acura) and i'm guessing it is dielectric grease? if so, leave it...

i wouldn't use brake clean on the fuse box end, it will damage the plastic.

if i'm off base take a pic and post up.

Bill1964a As it turns out, Naptha does a decent job when used with a toothbrush. A final scrubbing with Joy soap and hot water gets the bulk of the mess off after that....

Bill1964a Ah! Brake cleaner. I didn't even think of that. I think I heard that it dissolves everything. I'll give it a shot. Thanks!!!

alvanko I would have to suggest contact cleaner from Radio Shack. Its for electrical connections and dials etc.... Being the thrifty person that I am, I would probably use brake cleaner from the auto parts store or carb cleaner.

Graphite Grease Removal

I recently bought an underhood fuse/relay box on Ebay from a '98 Accura Integra. My intention is to have a handy-dandy, easy to wire, fuse box for expansions & modifications. It's great! It has way more fuses & relays than I'll ever use. The problem is that the plugs on the bottom all have something like graphite grease packed in the connector wells where the wires solder down. Can anyone suggest a handy solvent that I can use to get this nasty gunk out of my plugs? I'm sure it serves a wonderful pupose in the Integra, like keeping sand out of the connectors during the trans-Saharan race, but I just don't need it. Not yet, anyway.

Help? Any info would be appreciated!
