Honda recommends cleaning behind the wheels. A good touchless car wash should have options for an underbody wash.

I understand that concern. Here in Panama city Fl we have sand... lots and lots of sand.
sure the roads are paved, but the sand has a way to drift and collect everywhere.
I can't get in my car without tracking it in.
There is'nt a day that goes by that I don[t think about it. It collects inside the engine compartment and I have found it inside the airfilter "element" housing whew hew!
Hmmm... an :idea: would be to purchase some type of rubber, get about 1 square foot for ea. side and cut them to the shape of the opening. I believe there are a few factory holes under ea. side to fasten the rubber with "honda Clips like the ones on the hood.
:idea: in the meantime... enjoy life beyond the walls. :idea:

[quote:a4396f5cf2="nyokie"]did they undercoat all the e's or is that just a dealer thing im in ny and mine came undercoated very well
but i do use a pressure washer in the wheel wells[/quote:a4396f5cf2]

I believe car manufactorers undercoat all of their vehicles.
All the cars I've owned have undercoat :idea:


in the meantime... enjoy life beyond your doors

does an undercoating seal up the opening?
unless it does, the problem remains for frenchtoast and her salt.
when i saw that gap, i thought about plowing through standing water
and feared the worst, but trusted the honda engineers to know what they were doing...
in high school i remember a friend showing off through a soaked underpass in his dads jeep-we were on the side of the road for a couple hours waiting to dry out.
