Re: Clearing dead leaves inside wings

Just experimenting with a photo on full editor and preview and I now see that if I click on preview, I can see the pics I've loaded. :D
This is why I have the under bonnet straps.

Re: Clearing dead leaves inside wings

The only thing I didn't like was not being able to see what pics I'd loaded until after I'd submitted the post. I did it wrong the first time, so I'd transferred the same pic 6 times When going to make a post with pics on here use Full Editor With Preview, that way you get to see what ur post will ...

Re: Clearing dead leaves inside wings

As a temporary measure and maybe permanent if it works. I've used some pipe lagging, cos I had some already some, to try and block the gaps where I believe the leaves are getting in. I'll be surprised if they stay in place when on the motorway, but fingers crossed. https://i.imgur.com/PEuBd4e.jpg ht...

Re: Clearing dead leaves inside wings

Well done with Imgur! You certainly have succeeded! More luck than judgement really Colin. I have a little knowledge of pic posting on my canoeing forum, first with Photobucketofs--t until it went tits up and more recently with Flickr. I've found with both of those sites though, that as I'm not con...

Re: Clearing dead leaves inside wings

It would probably pay me to block the gap between the two pieces of plastic as I don't doubt some detritus does get through there and that would be quite easy to block. I do think though that the majority gets through the gap between that plastic and the bonnet. A nice topping of soft rubber on that...

Re: Clearing dead leaves inside wings

Here's the pics (if this works). The second pic down shows best where the leaves have gone and the plastic guard that doesn't stop it. Thankyou Colin, it took a while and I'm not sure how I managed it. https://i.imgur.com/gZo14Lf.jpg https://i.imgur.com/d9lGsTy.jpg https://i.imgur.com/5Gu7bhw.jpg ht...

Re: Clearing dead leaves inside wings

I took some pics today, but I cannot figure out how to post them on here. However, my car is the same as yours with the same bits of black plastic sticking up at the bottom of the windscreen which are supposed to stop debris getting under the bonnet., which they don't. With your bonnet closed put yo...

Re: Clearing dead leaves inside wings

Your set up looks pretty similar to mine, but of course there's no way of telling if the bits of plastic in your pics have been extended on later models to form a better barrier to prevent leaf ingress. I'd like to think so because sorting this out will be a pain in the a..se !!

Re: Clearing dead leaves inside wings

[quoteAny chance of taking and posting photos and exactly where you mean and how bad it is?][/quote] Probably not, as apart from not knowing how to post pics here, the place where most of them have congregated is a smallish, dark space that's over a foot down from the top of the wing. I rang my deal...
