    Default best way to clean an engine bay?

    Hi guys, as advised I have bought some auto glym engine degreaser. It says i should spray liberally and bush around but how do i remove?

    Can i jet wash my engine bay?

    If so what should i tape up (electrical wise?) before i do so?

    Thanks Tom
