Anyone know how to remove the plastic clips (shaped like a H) to allow access to the top of the firewall?

I have a problem where water is getting into the heater air ducts, (Not a problem with the matrix) I think this may be a blocked drainage duct under the plastic cover in front of the windscreen.

Thanks

I found a couple of dinner knives worked well, one under each side of the H and gently ease them up. I had to do this to solve a leak into the cockpit, water was leaking through the bottom of the plastic shield where it met the metal bodywork, some plumbers non-setting mastic soon sorted it, all nice and watertight now and no problems since!

Thank Wonderloaf, spot on :-bd Mine is leaking into the air intake pipes, you can hear the water gurggling when you put the fan on, and water splashes out through the windscreen air vents s:sad

No probs, glad to help. Windscreen washers should only be on the outside, not on the inside!

Merry Xmas! s:D
