Hi Birt - glad to hear you got it sorted - the blocked drains in the scuttle is a know problem on most cars - I can't figure out why it ain't checked during a service. I suggest you do a check of the drains on all cars at least once a near especially especially after the autumn after the leaves have fallen. All that water won't have done the pollen filter any good so I suggest you check it out. On any car a poor airflow to the heater ain't good as the heater motor will need to work harder and due to poor airflow run hot - eventually burning it out. If your car has a sunroof check the drain pipes are clear - they end up draining into the caviyty behind the front wheel arches and can get crud at the lower end. Many thanks for you update and feedback
