Nasty. Did my cabin filter last year it was bad, but not that bad.

Yes I just cleaned out mine, and got a pile very much like yours, and I made sure to use anti seize on the bolts when I put it back together.

You should also consider undercoating the fender and the body.

Undercoat the inside of the fender? Hmmm...

I have undercoated the wheel wells, but for the inside of the fenders I find that a good cleaning and coat of wax works better. The undercoat is more grippy and leaves and stuff tend to get stuck easier.

How many bolts do I need to get to have the fender off? I know there's 4-5 of those plastic ones on the inside.

nah, don't take the fender off. just remove the bottom of the fender and pick the ---- out.

I think its like 3 bolts. 2 in the fender well and 1 on the other side. but it depends on if you have the stock splash guards or not.

Was this something you added to the cowl air intake?
