Engine bay questions

Hey guys if I were to clean my engine bay would I have to cover anything up? Or is everything weather proof? I have a 2006 325i. Thanks!

I usually cover the alternator with a plastic bag and use a gentle stream of water. Adam's makes a great APC for engine bay cleaning. Watch out for the belts too, upon startup, they can slip a bit and squeal until they heat up.

I don't usually cover anything, it all gets a bit wet in the rain anyway, water will get through the rad etc and onto pretty much everything, just don't use a pressure washer, just a harden hose!
