    Hi,

    Hopefully a quick one for somebody (may save me removing grills, etc).

    I seem to have water getting inside the car. I've checked a few obvious things, but still struggling.

    I've now noticed that if I pour water onto the n/s of the front windscreen, water drains near the front o/s wheel. I'm assuming water should also drain in a similar position on the n/s? (it was parked on the flat when I poured the water). If so, where are the drain holes? Under the cowling trim (that sits below the windscreen with the wipers poking through) somewhere? If so, photos would be useful so I know exactly where I'm looking.

    Thanks.

    I haven't got one but they should be in each corner under the trim.
    It's only a case of pulling the wipers off and a couple more screws to take the trim off though enit?

    In theory. Just a couple of things throw a slight spanner in. Firstly removing the wipers is a pain. As far as I can figure, you get at them from below, meaning you have to remove all sorts of other things to gain access. Not too complicated - just a pain. Second, as with most tings trim, besides the wipers, the trim in question is held on by plastic breakable/flyable clips. What's the betting I loose/break some?

    I was just hoping that someone could confirm whether or not there is a drain hole there before I start all the above.

    Cheers.
