    Just took a long trip with my Model S 75D and got a bunch of leaves wedged in the corners of the grille (see attached photos)... any tips/advice on how to get this stuff out of there? I'd rather not sit here with a pair of tweezers pulling these things out one by one... not even sure that would work very well anyway.

    Careful with tweezers, the 'black' on the radiator scrapes off VERY easy - I know.

    Try a big shopvac with narrow nozzle along with compressed air on the very sides will get most of them.

    Wow... I have been dealing with this as well and was wondering how to remove all the autumn leaves. Thanks for the info. I was skeptical of using tweezers as well.
