Check out this DIY from the Detailed Image website. Awesome info to be had here.

The only thing I do in addition to prepare, is cover the alternator with a plastic bag for protection. I would use this technique for any additional component of concern.

The most important thing to remember is to not use a jet of water to rinse! You want to use a mist or shower setting on your sprayer. As long as you abide by this, you should have no issues.

I use the P21S Total Auto Wash as discussed in the DIY for cleaning, and the 303 Aerospace Protectant for dressing the hoses and vinyl/plastic parts.
