Default Re: How to Clean the Engine Bay ?

Thought I should share this video on how to clean the engine bay on this thread. Also illustrates many misktakes people might be making during the cleaning/detailing process.

Though many may consider cleaning the engine bay a waste of time given the Indian road conditions, some of us still like it spanking clean.

The video you linked involves lot of wastages. He tells you to use microfibers to sop up the dirt, once any grease/gunk gets on it, you cannot use it again despite washing. You'll have to bin them. Using 10-15 microfibers to wash an engine bay is wasteful IMO.

This is a pragmatic approach to cleaning an engine bay



Once the engine is squeaky clean, I use a regimen similar to below video for maintenance washes, except I dont use any dressing.



For the proof of pudding, I have shared pictures of my engine bay here : http://www.team-bhp.com/forum/long-t...ml#post4218136 (Life with a Red Mitsubishi Cedia)
