Leaf blockage is an Autumn thing mainly as the trees start to shut down for the winter by shedding their leaves.

However, having said all that, it does need a thoughtful approach to plenum cleaning and not a thing to be neglected.

Use these and leaf debris will be a thing of the past.

HI Laith.
Sorry for the very late reply, but great to hear the threads helped you, it is also that time of year that the plenums need to be checked at least once a week, it will only a 5-10 minutes of your time so go on guys & gals check them out before you are sorry.

Default Winter checks

Don't forget those plenum tubes can get blocked with ice this time of year if they have not been trimmed, so check them.

Well March has been one of the wettest we have and for years, also snow, so this weekend give your plenums a quick check, better to be safe than sorry.

Hi, did you ever find the answer to your question because I was wondering about this too.

The answer to the above is yes, because the tube goes through two skins, and if it's not seated properly the water will be lying with in the two skins.

We had one at our last meet which i corrected he too was getting water into the car.

John grommets on there way

Default sunroof drain

I have the dreaded sunroof drain problem on the driver's side. I did the passenger side 3 years ago following Artic's excellent articles. Wasn't too bad a job. Just wondering if Artic has done the drivers side. It is a real pig, can't see the outlet, it is hidden behind the wiring loom and a few electrical items. I may be able to locate it by feel enough to enable me to push in the plastic connector.
