I didn't know where else to post this:
I have a two-fold problem. I'm trying to repair the cupholder in my cage that somehow has broken the plastic retainer that holds the return spring. No problem, except that the PO somehow spilled a bunch of wax into it. (The only possible scenario I can imgagine is that he/she was burning a scented candle in the cupholder and it somehow closed. When the wax cooled, it gummed up the works, and someone tried to force it open/closed breaking off the return spring.)
Anyway, I can't glue a repair tab on there while it's covered with wax, and the normal way I'd remove wax (heat) is iffy in this situation. Is there some product that will dissolve the wax without heat?
