Hi from Down Under

Hello from Australia !
We got our blue nitro 3 years ago now and have racked up 70,000 kM. (43000 miles)
Mainly interested in how to, diy maintenance stuff, is there a forum section for that here? can we start one? or is there a way to search the forum for a specific topic?

First thing i'd like to know is what's the easiest way to clean the bugs out of the radiator / intercooler / condenser ? It looks like either remove the battery and windshield washer bottle (battery needs to be removed to get at a screw on the washer bottle) OR from underneath, remove the plastic panel from the bumper / wheel arches ?????

any thoughts? We're not overheating yet but summer is approaching..........

Got some Links on the grille removal but hardly anything on maintenance and it won't come from me! That is why I purchased a Maintenance Service Contract from my Dealership. However, ask away on any issue here and we will all try and help out and Welcome to Dodge-Nitro.com.
