Front Air-dam Removal
Page 237 of the manual under Off-road Driving Tips casually states. "Prior to off-road driving, remove the front air dam to prevent damage. The front air dam is attached to the lower front fascia with seven quarter turn fasteners and can be removed by hand". That sounds like a good idea and easy too, or so I thought. The quarter turn fasteners came out without too much trouble. The two ends unclipped fairly easily but that's where it stopped. There in no way I could see of getting the centre section of the air-dam off without damaging the clips. Also, after looking in there, I'm not so sure it is a good idea. It leaves the radiator and the windscreen washer bottle exposed to flying rocks. Mine is the 2012 model with the modified front end. Perhaps it is just a 2012+ issue. Any ideas?
