    did this on sunday. car was frozen. so was i. no puddles to report but a few leaves and random piece of plastic in the drivers side drain.
    removed all that pointless foam around the top mount covers as well. it was all falling apart.

    check out your wiper mechanism while you have the covers off. mines just seized up on the drivers side.

    Either quarter turn with screwdriver and just pull out or pop it up a bit with screwdriver and pull out depending on what style they are

    Thanks very much for this thread! Over the past week I’ve been driving around with what sounded like water in my ears! I can safely say you could have taken a swim in the levels of water I found. I feel slightly ignorant and naive that I never spotted this thread! Cleaned drains and surrounding areas... tested water passing through both of them. Even used the girlfriends hairdryer to ensure everywhere was dry! I’m going to make sure I do this often from now onwards.

    This might be a daft question, but what is the point of the 2 rubber drains. Could you live with them removed?

    Thanks again!

    The rubber drains stop the water coming up from the wheel arch like a one way valve if you hit deep water it could be forced upward into the scuttle bay.
