spray it down with purple stuff or equivalent , and pressure wash it off, will not hurt a thing , just dont spray your air filter area to hard, we steam them off all the time after repairs

I've never done it, but I've been told by Marc to try to keep the water off the alternator and relays if you can.

I use any kind of heavy duty degreaser(purple power is what i mostly use), and i put a trashbag, or grocery bag over the alternator before hand so it doesn't get wet.

I've had no problems
