Does anyone know how I can get the leaves that are stuck inside my front bumper without taking the whole thing apart? Every time I go out to my car I keep see another stupid leaf hanging out and I can get that one out, but I can tell there are a lot more!!! Help me PLEASE!!!

I know exactly what you are talking about, and I have no idea how to get them out. It is like a box of tissues, you pull a couple out and more appear.

I don't see how that many can get in there, the space they have to get through is so small.

You might try a metal coat hanger or something like that to get the ones you can't get with your hand.

I hose them out by pointing the hose down and towards the front through the engine bay. This also clears out grime from the radiator.
If that doesn't work, you can always shove a vacuum hose with a crevice tool in there; probably smart to use a wet vac for that.

The leaves that get behind the bumper from the wheel well can usually be hosed out by tracking the hose from the top and working down.

I don't know about sticking a coat hanger up there. I'm kinda clutzy and I'd be afraid of scratching something I don't want to. My Dad has a shop vac so maybe I can talk him into letting me try it out. I've thought about maybe climbing under there and seeing if there's a space big enough to fit my hand in. I have small hands, but i don't know about that.
