Re Applying Dynax S50

My land rover defender was professionally chassis cavity injected with Dynax S50 7 years ago so I was considering topping it up with a fresh application myself.

Would I be best to try and clean the interior of the chassis first by spraying inside with a 10% Surfex HD Solution, and then rinsing through with a hose for ten minutes or so, letting it all dry thoroughly, and then reapply?
Or should I just reapply without any prep. The Landie is low mileage and has never been used off-road.
The answer might seem obvious, but I am slightly sceptical how much muck the Surfex HD/ Low pressure rinsing, would actually get rid of, and I do not really want to use the Pressure washer with a drain cleaner attachment approach.
Or indeed is the top-up needed at all?

Get an endoscope attachment for your phone and take a look inside the body cavities first. They are £30 off amazon.

Why didn't I think of that! Especially as I have an endoscope camera...

I can't think of any good reason to put water inside the chassis. By all means have a check with the endoscope, good practice for any vehicle (especially one known to be at risk of rust) but I would just get some of the aerosols and long injector probes from BH and fizz some more protection in there.

No you don't need to do that because they are probably as good as the day they done it

I'd be curious to see the pics before you started anything, see how it's held up.

Can’t see any harm in topping it up - not sure if it’s required, but can’t see any issues.

But wouldn’t recommend trying to clean it out and certainly not putting water in....
