Re: water leaking into car

I'd like to bet the drains at the ends of the scuttle panel below the windscreen wipers are blocked. Take the wiper arms off, remove the plastic panel below them. AT each end of the under tray you'll find 2 drain holes. if like the 2001 Scenic they have rubber flaps over them, why I have no idea. These will be 'glued' down with leaf matter and dirt. I cleaned out the holes in mine and haven't had a problem for 12 months. Will be something I do every 18 months or so in our dusty climate as I don't want a wet-dog smelling Scenic again.
Currently in OzRX4's garage:
2001 Megane Scenic RX4 Privelege Verve, 2003 Clio Privelege 1.4auto, {son's car}
