    Try to scrape it off as gentle as possible rather than use a chemical that may stain the top. If the sap has hardened it will just flake off.

    i have a convertible solara and the same thing happen to me. i just got a blow dryer and used it on the spot until it was cooked and then it just came off in one big blob. give it a try before anything else because you dont want to push the sap deeper into the fibers anymore if you dont need to.
