Water leak drivers footwell. CURED

Hi I am new to this forum
I have an old Megane Scenic 1.4
My problem has been that i could hear water sloshing around on my right hand side, then a couple of days later my footwell would be full of water.
I removed seats and carpets, dried out the floor. I then hosed the car, i found water coming in on the floor between both doors, it looked like the water was from the sunroof drains.
With a bit of luck i was able to find the outlet's under the car.
I found 4 outlets, 2 near side and 2 offside, once i unblocked them with a cable tie and then water poured out of them.
I have added 2 photos of where the drains are.

THe holes in the photos are drains for the sills but thay ain't the drains for the sunroof or scuttle panel.

Hope it cures your flooding problem though.
