Copperleaf had the Jules plenum guard fitted around 2 years ago and yet still get problems, because my parking area is surrounded by pine trees. The needles get everywhere and short of moving house the only thing to do is keep on rodding!

Martin.
Even more reason to cut off those drain tubes by 15mm also at the next Nano ask me about some fish tank filter.

Hello & good morning to all owners & members, just a quick reminder while we have this deluge of none stop rain check those plenums, as any tiny form of blockage/debris will stop this amount of water getting away quickly, we don't want the ECM going for a swim that's for frogs & fishes

Just to echo what Arctic keeps saying about checking plenums, whilst fitting the spy hole modification this evening during a break in the heavy rain I thought it a good idea to check the cabin filter of the newly acquired diesel 75.
One of the filters has been in the old car for about 3k miles and the other appears to have done 14 years. Answers on a postcard please.
