I'm astonished by the amount of fluffy I see when I check radio units at the junkyard. Pretty sure many owners are not aware of this, and imagine they complain about climate not working properly or worse - check into small garages and had parts replaced/serviced for no reason. Often times I see these completely packet with fluffy stuff. Not sure it's even easy to suck out these when it's so packed - and surely inserting anything through the small grid is a recipe for repairs from broken sensor. The small fan that sucks in all these also gets packed but it's easily cleaned by removing the CCM and should be part of the maintenance as when it gets clogged it stops spinning and doesn't bring air properly onto the sensor. Also good to look with a flash light through the grid make sure the small tunnel behind the sensor is also clean, so the air can freely flow to the small fan
