Pine Needles...

Hey guys,

I had to park my car under a pine tree in order to avoid it getting pelted by hail. Now the problem is: I've taken it out from under the tree and it's covered in bird crap and pine needles. I can wipe off the bird ****. However, I also had some pine needles go down the vent by the windshield. How can I get those out? Also, what is that used for since the XK doesn't have a cabin filtration system?

Thanks for your help as always!

Cheers!

That's the windshield cowl. Most cars have them and that's where air enters for the outside air for the ventilation system. Remove the cowl to get the pine needles out.
