    I'm in process of cleaning mine as had furry visitors while it was parked up over the winter. Not a good day but needed and will hopefully finish up later or tomorrow.

    What I do is:

    - Warm engine bay.
    - Cover up fuse boxes, alternator, electrics etc, remove battery.
    - Liberally spray AG Vinyl & Rubber Care and Engine & Machine Cleaner all over.
    - Close bonnet and go make some tea (leave for 15 minutes).
    - If severe now go over with brush/cloth.
    - Pressure wash all over.
    - Detail with Vinyl & Rubber Care and GT85 for hard to reach bits.
