    Default Cleaning Under the bonnet?

    What can I use to clean the engine under the bonnet, and get all the grime and **** off?
    I don't want to use something that will damage anything.

    AutoGlym Engine Cleaner works great for me - but I'm sure there are other products that people will suggest.

    Hi Dan,

    The quickest and easiest way I have found is as follows: -

    Lift bonnet

    Wrap anything you are wary of in double thickness clingfilm

    Spary AG Engine & Machine Cleaner liberally, including the underside of the bonnet

    Agitate any heavy soiling with a long handled radiator brush

    Rinse with water

    Then spray AG Vinyl & Rubber Care

    Close bonnet

    Job done

    And beleive me it has taken me longer to write tis reply than it actually takes to do the job

    Bryan
