This is what I did to help solve the leaf problem. The Strips are 1.5" wide

Default Access from the the back of the well





This is easy access remove all screws on our way, if the cover didn’t budge, there must have been a screw you missed, happened to me, then wiggle it out of the way
I did it from the back of the wheel well and it was easy access, removed all 3 rubber grommets, plenty of leaves and crap, be creative on how you get in the holes and pry the leaves out, then water from the brake fluid reservoir(obviously make sure your lid is tight), washed out more crap

All 3 rubber grommets, I did end up NOT putting back the beak. There is no sense in that design, as you would rather have the leaves and crap fall in to the wheel well than have deposits and water building up near brake pump brake fluid reservoir up high. Put the other 2 back because holes are too big you don’t want insects go in there either

Clean up all 3 holes while you are in there. I found crap in all 3. Then put your fingers in, your steel pick, your skinny suction line, whatever you find, like picking your nose, clean it up you will breath smoothly

If you have the air suspension...please make sure to deactivate it before every jacking up the car.


To defeat the leveling system turn the ignition system on and push the height control all the way forward and hold it there until you here a beep.

Did this today and found a lot of debris. Also drained the side sills. Funny that it doesn’t seem that many dealers follow the maintenance schedule of “checking the firewall drains of for debris.”
