thank you.

Not really a good idea to splash high pressure water around that area and what would happen if the drains were block and the plenums filled up?

Almost any thin, flexible rod will do to clear the drains out of debris. The end of the rod should appear below the car, pushing any debris out with it. Then you can rinse them out with a little low pressure water from a hose.

They need to be checked frequently, especially if there are falling leaves, or if the car is parked under/near trees. You can buy 'gutter guards' for not a lot, from Jules, which will help prevent leaves getting in.


How To's and items I offer for free, or just to cover the cost of my expenses...


Fix a poor handbrake; DIY ABS diagnostic unit; Loan of the spanner needed to change the CDT belts; free OBD diagnostics +MAF; Correct Bosch MAF cheap; DVB-T install in an ex-hi-line system; DD install with a HK amp; FBH servicing.

I've taken a vow of poverty. To annoy me, send money.

You are bang on with the above these are fitted FOC at our Nano meets, you can purchase a round piece from any garden/fish pond outlet for £0.50p cut it in half and you have enough for both side inner top wings.
