Re: Water leak in footwell

hiya all - i have a 2000 scenic alize and after leaving her for ten days over xmas got in her this am and found the pass well a small version of teh mediterrean sea..

i am new to renaults - i have been in the past an austin, Ford and Vauxhall driver, love the scenic as it feels like a bus and is massive inside..

back to the water ingress

I located the drains on the sunroof...they are clear.,use some stiffing wire to poke in or curtain wire to push inside and clear any blockage

..checked the flappers under the screen scuttle they are clear...

I was directed to the drain pipe under the front wheel arch on the passenger side - there is a flapper valve on the end of the pipe - god knows why - pull the thing off and clear the crap - that should solve the issue - i hope it does

to clear the water i have got a load of cat litter place a towel on the carpet and dropped a bag on it will leave it 24 hours and clear tommorow - hopefully this will clear the water ingress...

anyway see what happens with RLC - will let u all know
