2017 will clutch vent just let water in?

Been installing some extras on the new turbo and noticed the clutch vent is just open and I can stick my hand in it. Maybe this is a dumb question but what's going to stop water from just running in there into the hot clutch??

I agree. Something doesn't sound right. If you could post some pictures that would be helpful. Once we can see whats going on someone will be able to let you know whats going on.

My 17 4 seater is the same! When the motor in running pretty sure the force of air coming out of it won't let water in ? But if stalled in water deeper then opening it's going to let water in !

My 15 1k had the grate over it but it also was up a bit higher. Just didn't seem like a great design

Re: 2017 will clutch vent just let water in?

If you get in some deep water and stop, the water will rush in and fill the cvt. Bad design. Also on the 2016 the intake bezels get clogged up easily. I just finished snorkeling mine.

Re: 2017 will clutch vent just let water in?

my 16 xpt is the same. Any kits out to get that vent up higher? Dont want to snorkel but even my 900S was vented much higher than that.

Re: 2017 will clutch vent just let water in?

This is one of the reasons I added the Blowhole to my inlet. Although I have been in water numerous time that put several inches into the floorboards with no issue I wanted a bit more insurance plus the added cooling effect without snorkeling as I know there will be times I drop into deeper than expected water crossings and I did not want the worry.
