One of the jobs on my list is to get the front rads cleared - bumper off job.

Today I took advantage of warmish weather and went for a blast knowing I could clean her up afterwards. For Christmas I got a car dryer so I could get rid off as much water as possible before garaging under cover.

As I cleaned the front loads of crap came out of the front vents - assume it will still need doing properly but was quite pleased!

The crap gets in between the radiator and the air con condenser, so the best way is to take off the front PU bumper. Be aware that many of the screws and clip nuts will need replacing, so I suggest buy a few of each before you start. Also get a can of wax oil or bolt hammer Dynax and coat all bare metal )”(not the rads or condensers obviously) while the PU IS OFF.
