Leaves in wiper arm hole

07-17-2020, 10:42 AM
On my 2017 CX-5, leaves drop into the area between the windshield and the hood where the plastic cover is. The wiper motor shafts go thru holes in that plastic cover. Leaves get into the holes. I use a small, thin pair of needle-nose pliers to pull them out. My concern is that some leaves surely are beyond my sight and reach. How can I get to the area to clean out any leaves and debris that must collect under the plastic? I assume any rain/water that goes into that area will drain but if the leaves clog up the drain, this could create a problem!!!
