09 trafic how to stop water geting onto head

New to renault and have Been looking up problems that I may come across,the one that stands out for me is that rain water pass down through the driver and passenger side front panels and down under the van,but theses panels get blocked with leaves and dirt etc and that causes the rain water to run along the head and sit on injector number four,causing it to seize in place and make it next to impossible to remove if needed !! I have looked at this and sure to form found leaves and stuff blocking the water from draining away,anyway I am the second owner of the van and I wonder what I could to if anything to stop this problem from happening again,or is it to late as I imagine the first owner had never done this or even knew about it,I have only owned the van about 2 months now so maybe the damage has been done already !!!!

Interesting, have you got a plan of attack for a cure.
Photo's would be a great help too.

I think you & all Trafic owners should read this:

Many thanks

Re: 09 trafic how to stop water geting onto head

Again thank u chuffer 690,them posts make for good reading,at least I now know that renault are aware of the problem and will fix it or even put a new engine in at no cost to me!!i,d say it would b a battle to get them to pay for the whole thing,but at least there would b some kind of help,as of how I cleaned the panels,I simply got a air line and blew most of the leaves and dirt out,not sure how much I actually got out ,passenger side seems to b good and clear as I can c the water leaving the van underneath,drivers side has improved as I could not c any water leavening the van before hand and now I have a steady but not as fast a flow as the passenger side,which leads me to believe that I haven't cleared all of it,so other than taking the whole panel off there's not much more I can do,I am now ever going to take the drivers side panel off in the next week hopefully clean it out and figure out some way of sealing it off altogether,agin thanks for the reply and the links again,I will try and post some pics of what i am taking about

Re: 09 trafic how to stop water geting onto head

You will be pleased to know that water is coming out of both scuttle drain pipes on my Trafic, but, i am going to remove the panel when weather gets better & see if i can clear the bits you can't see.
