Re: Renault Scenic 1 - General Advice On Interior Water Ingress

Help! Today we spent hours trying to clean out the drains. We got to the wheel arch and yes indeed behind the valve there was lots of mud.
We used strimmer wire/guitar wire/curtain wire in both directions. When we put the strimmer wire down it did not come out the bottom, it went roughly 3/4 the distance.
Also when the sunroof was open and we poured water straight into the drainage hole area, the water flowed much quicker to the wheel arch after taking out the also still came out at the liner and in the sides of the windows.

By away we also checked the mesh thing near the wipers...all clean.

Could there be a problem with the pipe going to the drainage hole...I have no idea how to remove the roof liner or indeed how to put it back.

Advice really welcome.
