Battery powered leaf blower works well. Compressed air is ok too if the pressure is not too high. This way you don't scratch your intake vanes with a vac attachment. Blowing air in the front seems to get everything out.
I use a crevice attachment and it works to get about 90% out. I then use a leaf blower and that gets some more out. I have noticed that some leave a actually behind the mesh that is supposed stop the leaves. I have not figured out how to get that out yet.
Bringing a thread back from the dead. Just got back from a two day trip to drive the mountain roads in NC, GA and TN. Absolutely awesome, not much traffic, did the classics - Cherohala, Tail of the Dragon, Hwy 129…great stuff and car ran like a champ. However, it is peak leaf dropping season and some of the lesser used roads were carpeted in leaves. Got back home and had to fish out an amazing amount of leaves. Crazy. Btw the water under my car was already there when I parked lol.
Does anyone got leaves or dusts behind the meshes (between the radiators and the meshes) ? And did you manage to get them off ?
I didn't found anyway to get these meshes out without undoing all the front of the car.
Any idea ?
