Re: Does the Clio have body paint drain plugs?

Thanks all. Got as far removing the seats this afternoon (which was quite the ballache!). Will try and get the carpets out later in the week. Removing the seat's grommets underneath let a lot of the water out, but there's still a fair bit left so I'll have a go at popping the plugs once I've removed the carpet.

I also had a go at solving the leak itself, but didn't get very far - I can tick sunroof off the list as I don't have one, and I don't think it's the door seals as the water started appearing in both sides at the same time. So I tried looking at the area behind the scuttle panel - unfortunately the windscreen wipers are refusing to come off so I can't remove the scuttle panel. I got the nuts off the wiper arms, but no amount of levering/prising/WD40 would get the buggers off - any suggestions?

Thanks for all the help
