Maybe complete bollocks, but I’ve got it in my head that the powder from the fire extinguisher can be very corrosive?

Might be a good idea to hose it all away?

That was a very impressive backfire!

Good point. I did hose quite a bit of it off but there is still some lingering around.

Impressive was not the word that I used at the time!

It's not,they are.

I found out the hard way.

It will rot and corrode anything and everything it touches.

Mercury isn't kind to aluminium either.

 

I don't think that this is an aluminium bodied Audi.  But obviously there are aluminium bits in the engine bay.
