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.

You need to fit the skuttle panels with a filter material.
Stops all the debris 100%

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.

Yep many garages charge for a service but don't change the filter.

To me the pollen filter is more important than the oil filter.
It's what you breath into your lungs !!!!!!!

All sorts of spores get in there and always a risk of legionnaires disease if filter stays wet.

Agree the shields do their job in the majority of parking areas but in leafy areas more protection is required as Arctic describes above.

We did originally design some finer filters to go over the standard 2 netted covers already there (they are simply not fine enough)
Most other makes have much finer cabin intake grills and don't suffer the ingress of forest matter !!

We never got round to putting them into production
Daft really but not enough hours in the day here.

What we suggest is sticking more fish tank filter material to the plenum cover grills to add even further protection

A big chunk of that black stuff you have, bottom left in your pic, should cure it. Right over the outlet hole.

With a clean out every two or three years maybe.--
