How to remove debris from front air intakes?

Recommended Posts

Ok, first wash. Discovering all the odd little books and crannies where leaves and bits get wedged. How does one go about removing leaves from behind the front air intakes???

Yep, this is what I used on the two side ones. As lee said the centre grill is easily removed (but do it before you wash the car). :sick:

Blessed with the competence to be a slave to the incapable.
