Autoglym Vinyl and Rubber Care. I bought mine for exactly this problem.
Works perfectly and unlike Back to Black is long lasting...also good for those annoying rubber squeaks too.
Don't know if the promotion is still on, but Halfrauds had a two for one offer on chemical car care products.
I bought one of these plus an Autoglym Fast Glass for free.
There are a lot of products that are advertised for this particular problem, but this one is the most reasonably priced.

No they don't.........
The Focus Zetec S is also available in the 2.0 tdci, and the 1.8 petrol engine ( like mine ) but you have to look for them.......
When I bought mine, at the time it was the only one for sale in the Country, with the 1.8 petrol engine, 18" alloys, and privacy glass......as well as the full body kit.

I bought some of this today. 6.50 for a bottle that will last you ages and it wipes the floor with any back to black/bumper and trim restorer product ive ever used. Just sprayed it onto a cloth and rubbed it in and the trim looks as good as new.

Used it on the Window and door seals, Front and rear wiper arms, All the door trim and the black plastic side skirt.

Very good product.
