Re: Mk2 Clio 1.2 Wet passenger side footwell.

There is two drains on your type of sunroof.Easier to get to by removing the glass.To do this,open the roof as normal,depress the little red pin that you can see with your fingernail or small screwdriver to release the catch from the small bar.Now you can carefully lift the glass up and away from the car.This is best done from outside as it is surprisingly heavy.Have somewhere safe to drop before you remove it,The front of the glass is held in the frame on two angled bits of metal,they just slide out backwards after lifting the glass up.
Now the glass is out you will see a small hole in each of the front corners.The ideal thing to poke these out with are the old style curtain wire.Be carefull when poking around because the rubber pipes are a push fit onto the frame and if you push it off you will have a bugger of a job on your hands.Pour a little water into the frame as you go and you should see it coming out by the front wheels.On the passenger side the water comes out halfway up the wheelarch liner but i think the drivers side is different ,cant remember now.Its usually mud behind the liners which clogs up the pipe ends
Have fun,it you get stuck say so and i will try to get some pics done for you when we get a bit of daylight without rain.
