just plugs fella the middle bit that looks like a screw pulls up then the plug lifts out
Thanks, will give this a try when it's dry outside again.
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.
I'm new here & a new 197 owner, this thread has given me a to do task, thanks for the detailed instructions, it will be getting tackled as soon as it dry outside. Great work guys.
check out your wiper mechanism while you have the covers off. mines just seized up on the drivers side.
glad you are finding this site helpful..
Extremely pav, there's a wealth of tips & helpful threads here, it's great
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?
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.
