    Trim : LS

    Engine : 2.0 DTI

    Year : 2003

    Default Engine Bay Plastics / Rubbers

    Hello folks, I was wondering is it worth spraying the plastics / rubbers around the engine with some silicone oil as they perish over time. If so can anyone recommend a spray or do I use WD ???
    Thanks

    WD will only attract rubbish. As for how to maintain, read this direct from Samco:

    There are many substances that will remove
    dirt and grime from engine components, but
    not that many are suitable for silicone. The
    best cleaning product is a simple solution of
    soapy water. Do not use petroleum based
    products under any circumstances.
    As for the plastics, I use AG Tyre Dressing, and it works wonders, keeps em looking pristine. Clean with APC, dry and dress.

    Clean the bay/area first; dont just spray onto dirt.
