    check the dust cover behind the brake...it may have gotten tweaked into where it rubs the disc

    i always wash under my hood......and do it while the truck is running. i havent had any problems.


    i also hit the alternator with the pressure washer, but i dont have it directly on it when i do so..................keep the nozzle away a bit, and spray it.......just a few quick blasts and let it dry a bit...repeat as necessary.

    mud does........water...not so much. just dont submerge the alternator while it running.......a few blasts from the hose or pressure washer arent gonna hurt.
