Re: Drain Hole Abyss!!!!

I found a great YouTube video that showed all of this in great detail.

The drain tubes end inside the plastic inner wheel arch.

It'e easy to peel these back just with your fingers.

The rubber pipe ends have a flap valve on the end.

Algae and slime grows preventing the flap valve from opening.

Remove the rubber pipe ends and shake/gently squeeze the tubes. Gunk dissolves, water gushes and problem solved. Don't put the rubbers back!

Isn't great that the tube ends are not water tight so that the water drips all over your fuse box?

Vive La France, Vive La Conception Revoultionaire!
