Wet footwells on my Mk1 lag were down to the plastic cover under the door liners coming away. my friend had water sloshing around in his Mk11 lag and it was in the doors as the drain plugs were blocked.

I've got water sloshing round in the passenger door of my Lag II also. The door has a rubber drain plug on the underside, and I have to routinely drain the doors from water. I look like a prat if I'm seen doing this.

Surely the doors shouldn't accumulate water in the first place.........hence the fact that they need to be drained manually, rather than a drain point existing but getting blocked up.

Any ideas where the water is ingressing, so I can possibly prevent it from entering in the first place.

Hi Babyboaty - if you look closely behind the rubber strip along the bottom of the door there are long slim elongated drainholes. Water runs out of mine all the time - all cars get water ingress via window surrounds etc - its just a question of letting the water out quicker than it comes in.

Thumbs up Same Prob With Megane II and sloved it!!

Hi not sure if this helps but had the same problem with my 2003 Megane.

Turned out to be the drain pipe from the climate control, which had come off. As a result all excess water as pooling in the foot wells. Ha been like it for several months judging by the amount found.

Was a pain to fix though as most of the dash had to be removed.

Hope this helps
