Tried search no joy,

The plastic cover for the radiator and clutch fan is blocking the installation of my XH snorkel.

Has anyone found a way around this without removing the whole cover because I really don't think that is a good idea.

See how the snorkel's obstructions are shown in the first photo.

Racing an import is like competing in the special olympics.....even if you do win, you're still retarded.
