Cleaning leaves from Front Bumper Lower Grill


Well-Known Member
Mar 10, 2016
Hi guys, was washing the car yesterday and noticed a bunch of leaves and dirt in my lower grill from the road. I tried to put a vacuum in there but had no luck pulling that stuff out. Any ideas on how to get access to that trash without removing front bumper?
There's no good way that I've found. Taking the bumper off isn't too much a PITA once you've done it a few times.
Been there, done that
