      What he said

      Citrus Degreaser, Megs APC then agitated

      Cover any electrics and rinse.

      Then add some (insert your own product) Autoglym rubber care on pipes or hoses and it should help to keep it clean and easier to keep clean.

        If it hasnt been done in ages you will have your work cut out. The easiest way would be to get it steamed cleaned first

          ive been told by Vauxhall that they do not advise steam cleaning?!? am I wrong in taking that advise?

            I've just bought some Autoglym engine bay cleaner, hopefully that stuff will work nicely. I'm a little anxious about taking the karcher to the engine bay, simply incase I miss a seam and soak the battery or fuse box or something. I might just take it easy at first, apply the degreaser to a cloth and then wipe off with a clean damp cloth.

                Hoping to give the whole car a detail this weekend, trouble is that the weather forecast doesn't look too good
