Never had an issue. I don’t even cover the electrical stuff.Dang that is ballsy. I fear messing up something by washing the engine bay.
Same. I cleaned it today in fact, but I do that regularly.Nice job and a matte steering wheel
Nothing I hate more then a shiny steering wheel.
I use my Tornador with ONR solution or a citrus degreaser and pressure washer if it's really grimy.What do you guys use? Simple green and synthetic brush? Do you just rinse the entire engine bay with a nozzle-free flow of water avoiding the alternator?
I've occasionally vacuumed and wiped up some dirt around the perimeter of the engine bay but that usually entailed a lot of dirty towels.
I upgraded my 2017 accord sport to the 24f. Only thing I had to do was buy the v6 battery bracket. Was around $12 or $15 at the dealerHonda used the smaller battery for the 4 bangers. Additionally, the small battery is the only size that fits in the TSX (like ours). Accords can use the bigger size, which was used in the V6 models. Honda makes a changeover kit that has a new tray. Or you can modify what you have.
Youtube has a few videos showing both ways. Search YT for "Accord battery upgrade" to use the 24F. You can modify your tray, buy kit form Honda or hit your local junk yard.
I’m triggeredRemind me I should wash the roof of my Ford. Never been done. Getting a bit gooey up there from parking under a White Pine.
I may do that one day. I haven’t done much research on the topic but I wonder if the extra “power” would harm anything.I upgraded my 2017 accord sport to the 24f. Only thing I had to do was buy the v6 battery bracket. Was around $12 or $15 at the dealer
I can’t remember if I made it fit on the existing tray or just took it out
Lol...I have three teens who have spent their lives watching me do things and never once have they even expressed interest let alone actually attempt ANYTHING...lolGood job.
One word of caution, if your son watched you clean the engine bay he will try to do it himself sometime in the future imitating his dad. That usually doesn’t work out the way we hope.
Nice! Looks great.I was inspired by this thread. I spent about 30 minutes doing mine. I only used a dirty rag with some car wash solution and water in a bucket and some interior detailer. Not perfect, but certainly better than before.

On your new Ford? Did you try the dealer for a warranty fix?I have to disconnect and reconnect my MAF periodically to fix hesitation. Last thing I want to do is pressure wash underhood.
Yeah I know weatherpack style connectorisation, etc, but the fuse box lid isn't even gasketed. And I tossed the engine cover as it was working as a mouse-house roof in the winter!
I've used Scrubbing Bubbles a couple of times with alternator covered and got decent result.

First time cleaning the engine bay in 10 years right before selling it.
