Cleaned around the rads tonight, before it goes for its inspection next week, trying to make sure it is covered under wtty.

I have to say that there was a vast amount of rubbish trapped in there, mostly leaves, and the only way to get it out, was a stick and the hover nozzle,

I can see why the cores can rot, very bad design, and no where for the crap to go, and damn difficult to see in there, let alone clean.

I would recomend all 996 owners clean in there once a month.

Cheers mate, I will get out there and clean mine. I don't think mine are as exposed as on the C4S though.

Thanks Daz, I'll take a look at this.

Had a good go with a stick at scraping the crap from under the rear arches yesterday. Really needed a shovel !!
