Well have done the mod to the front "wine rack". Bumper was a bit more difficult to remove than I anticipated - definitley a knack to it. I had intended to take some pics as I went along but one of the kids had took the camera to a party !! I have only put the mesh in the 3 "wine racks " and not in the vents above them. I figured there would be much less of a risk of damage through the smaller/higher vents. Will post pics later of finished result - but am well pleased with it. Edited by: steve_lj

Looks good, and should keep lots of stuff out. Them holes look mighty small, or maybe its just the angle

Thanks - probably not the best pics. The mesh is actually from one of those places that does custom car bits and its specifically for use on grilles - air vents etc. I havent filled in the open areas above the main vents so shouldnt be any major issue regards cooling.

The holes do look a bit small to me - that is going to restrict airflow quite a lot!

I would keep an eye on the temp gauge, You have restricted the air flow by about 50% with that mesh....

Ok - I understand where you are coming from - but what other car do you know that has such an open area in front of the rads - even if the airflow was reduced by 50% then I still think there will be no issues given the original ammount of open area. Also I have left the the area above the big vents open.

It's not about comparing to other cars though, if the Juke is designed to run with that much open airflow then that is what will be considered when cooling the engine. It may have meant they could make a saving in another area, whereas other cars might have to compensate in other ways for less airflow.

true , although if you consider that the diesel engine is the same as whats in the clio then maybe the seriously large holes are not so important , in the DIG you might have to be wary as that engine is new,
I would say that also i think the holes in your meshing are too small and would like mine when i do it to be larger pretty much in the way gazzaweb is planning on making them,
I reckon you will be fine with your mesh but once it warms up a bit i would keep an eye on it for week or two to be certain

The thermostat on the rad(fan) should look after the temperature, I would expect it to be no problem at this time of year, maybe when it warms up a lot or if you get stuck in a traffic jam in Portugal in August !

oo i was just about to respond but then thought about what you said their stormy yes stationary will make no difference with the mesh as their is no air flow stationary but on the move you need airflow so its then that a problem may occur although i very much doubt it
