They all do unless it's suiting them all the fucking time eh! Thing is my woman will have to drive mine next week as her's is off the road for a few days should have seen her face when i told her.

"Tough shit and get on with it"
Yeah that would work, but we ain't together and said I shouldn't be driving him round in a pos, which is true because it kept breaking down

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 methods are you guys using for bay cleaning?
Degreaser /steam clean ??
Really need to crack into mine
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.
