    Exclamation I need to clean my engine/bay without electrical issues.How?.

    I have a CDTI and want to spruce up the engine and engine bay etc.However,I am a little concerned with all those connectors going to all sorts of sensors getting wet.
    What's the best thing to do to prevent any issues or problems?Felixx.

    Don't go throwing soapy water in there, then rinse off with the hosepipe !
    Get an old toothbrush and do a little area at a time. The brush will get into all the nooks and crannys.
    Wipe off the residue with an old MF cloth.


    Have consideration for the deaf, if you're gunna fart, make it smell !
