Re: Water leaks

It is the sunroof drains.
Water is filling up faster than they can drain. It then overflows down the A pillar, into the lower dash, and onto the carpet.

When it stops raining, the water in the sunroof drains, eventually drains down, making you think they are clear. But they are not....

Get 8ft of Net Curtain Wire.
Open Sunroof, and insert net curtain wire in the drain hole in the front right corner. Push in about 5ft of cable. It will then feel like its hit a dead end.
Push cable nice and hard, and it will suddenly give, and you can feed through more cable.

Remove cable, and repeat for sunroof front left corner drain.

When done, gently pour water from a bottle into the side runners on the sunroof. Being carefull not to over flow and get your interior wet !.
The water should quickly drain away and you will see it pouring on the ground.

Job done.
