Today I spent 20mins cleaning the air vents in the Mercedes I used cotton tips and to the amount of black dirt and dust that was on the cotton tip both ends of the tip was unbelievable!

I used clean cotton tips and repeated the process on all four vents and they are much cleaner now.

I switched on the air vents on to maximum setting and the quite alot of the dirt and dust blew out of the vents.

Has anyone else tried this same method cleaning the air vents in there car?

Cheers.

Hi Tim, I have and yes, it is amazingjust how much dirt is collected. Come to think of it - with all the work that's been carried out on Gleaming Beauty as part of the re-spray and sunroof/frame work, as well as seats etc., it was remarkable just how much 'ingrained' dirt there was in the car - and this despite the fact that I'd be quite fussy in trying to keep the interior spotless. Well obviously, I hadn't done it very well. Regards Styria

Practice makes perfect Styria I have seen your GB W116 Mercedes at last years Concours and the car is a credit to you!

I used half a packet of cotton tips to clean the air vents in the Mercedes I think on a regular basis cleaning the vents is a good idea.

On a regular basis I clean and detail the interior of the Mercedes vacuum, dust general maintenance and I am quite pleased with the results when I have Family and Friends in the car the positive feedback about how clean and tidy my car is is always greatly appreciated.

Cheers.
