Hey guys, 

 

In the middle of a plenum repair on an XF ute, just wondering from those who have done it.

 

Is the brace on the drivers side right next to the vent really necessary or can i leave it off?

 

thanks,

adrian

I'd probably lean towards leaving it out too. And the smaller one on the passenger side. If I had needed to do an in-depth repair of the area, I'd have made some modifications to reduce the chance of water and muck getting trapped in there too.

 

The drivers side one does look more like a strengthening brace, but it doesn't look to be relating to the wiper motor assembly or pedal box or anything IMO.

It does support the top plenum cover couple of spot welds, directly below there is the pedal box. There is bolts on that area for the wiper motor assembly isn’t there? Support Just going of memory car to far away atm.
