The sky just ripped open , I have just gone to pick the missus up , and noticed .
Water on the drivers carpet , traced it back to a small pot behind the drivers door a small perfectly form water feature was discovered.
I would imagine it's the drain hole , can anyone tell me where to prod the curtain wire ?

cheers JON

I think there are 3 drain holes under the door outer edge. The water has been known to run down the vapour barrier behind the door card and if it isn't sealed fully can find it's way into the car. this happened on ours on the passenger side and soaked the foam under the carpet.

If it is not the the drain holes @Brian4 is suggesting there are 2 drain channels behind the passenger and drivers seats as pictured below, they are so difficult to see properly with the roof in the way I cannot tell you where the hole is. @spurs fan in a coupe is breaking a zed at the moment, perhaps he could take a pic of this area to clarify where the actual drain is?

That's my water feature , it was running over the edge of this ....... I'll get the strong glasses , and be big light and see if I can find it


Cheers Brian 4 /H for your help

I'll certainly try!

I'll pop out later and snap what I see!

Thanks Spurs, I was hoping to get a shot in the roof drain area


It looks like you still have the roof on the shell so it will be quite difficult. Thanks for trying anyway.
