PostSubject: Hay by radiator    Sat Jan 28, 2017 2:46 am

Hi there

So I went to the river today and crossed over a field that had tethered hay.  On my return I checked un Der neath as my partner said it probably wasn't the wisest thing to do.  There is hay up in front of the radiator that is at the back of the engine and I can't get my arm up to remove it.  Will this be an issue or over time will it come out as so much air gets up there.  It's not packed full of hay, maybe a cup or 2 up to the top.  If I need to remove it how is that do-able.  I'm worried it'll cause over eating or fire?  Thanks so much

Mel

I suspect you won't get a fire, but yes, overheating would be a problem, the HiAce needs a working fan and a clear radiator to be happy.

Try gently using a hoover to get the straw out, or a compressed air line to blow it out from the engine side.
