No need to. Take off the plastic engine cover and follow the pipe down and you'll see its held onto the bulkhead by a little lug, prise it off the lug and pull it down. You can then pull it through the scuttle to clean it out, making sure you pop the trap off the end to clean it thoroughly. Clean the scuttle and apply a coat of wax to discourage rubbish sticking there and replace the drain.
Clean the other side by dropping the wheel arch inner cover to get the trap off and flush it with a hose, don't poke that tube with anything as there's wiring in there that you can damage.
