<br>I'd like to clean the engine bay on my 745i. I'm not too keen on using the old "degreaser/pressure wash" method, as there are alot of electricals under the hood which I sure as hell don't want to short out! Does anyone have a good system for effectively sprucing up the engine bay that's safe? Thanks in advance!<p>Rgds,<br>Aaron G.<br>

I use Simple Green. Spray on cold engine after covering intakes, wires, etc. with plastic garbage bags (use elastics). I wash everything with a regular garden hose on low-pressure spray. Works fine. ('86 735).

Get yourself a few cans of brake cleaner, spray a sq. feet at a time then with a high pressure nozzle fitted to an air compresser you can simply blow everything off. aim down to spray on ground. and wash car afterwards to make sure you get anything that may have got on your paint. also wear eye protection.
