Fresh Air Intake grill removal

I discovered the need to remove the grill just in front of the windshield so I can clean out the leaves, sticks and other debris that has collected there. I'm sure if I just leave it, it will hold moisture and I'll have water coming in through holes rusted through the sheet metal Does the windshield have to be removed to get that piece of the body off. There are about 7 or 8 screws along the front where the hood loses on it and a spare piece I have from another J truck cab I have appears to have some barbed tabs that extend under the windshield rubber so I need to know if it can be removed without removing the wind shield. If not, I may just leave well enough alone.

Windshield does not need to come out to remove the grill. Some guys put some kind of mesh under it to keep leaves out.

Run a hose down there after you get the leaves out to wash out the mulch.

Thanks for the info. I will get the grill off and get the leaves and gunk out and put some screen on the underside of the grill to keep it from filling up again. This reminds me of cleaning out the kick panel vents,,, so much fun!

This is where the kick panel vents get filled up from. The cowl is where they get the (forced) air from. When I cleaned out my vents I did this job at the same exact time as well. I put a screen in under that panel too. No more junk getting to my vents!


After your done cleaning, make sure your vents are still cleaned out. Run some water down inside on each side (of the cowl passage ways to the vents) and make sure it easily flows out the drain holes.
