SOURCE: cleaning drainage holes

i think the drainage holes you are reffering to are the ones in the front cowel. You have to remove the wiper arms and the unscrew the cowel to get at the drains.

SOURCE: air conditioning drainage tube blockage

drain tubes are generally on firewall level with bottom of heater box (but on engine side) usually in dumb places that are a pain to get to. They look like a small rubber hose elbow sticking out. Once found, usually you can clear them by just sticking your finger into the end (no screwdrivers or hard objects...you can damage stuff inside there)

SOURCE: water leaking into footwell drivers side of suzuki

Yes, the plastic caps at the bottom of the footwell, are for drainage. (Don't forget to replace them. You may not be pleased with yourself, if you don't, on a real rainy day!)

Does the water have a real nasty smell, and the inner windshield has a film on the inside? If so, then you have a heater core leak, and it's antifreeze.

If not, your air conditioning drain duct is plugged, and needs to be cleaned out. I also suggest a real weak solution of bleach and water, to be applied in this area, to kill any mildew that might form. (Unless you are allergic to bleach. If so, you may want to try an alternative. Mildew is bad for your respiratory system)

SOURCE: Water keeps filling up under passenger seat in rear of car

My 2001 passat did the same thing. my leak was coming from the door panel. Open your door and use a water hose to simulate rain water running against your window. Water should run into door and drain out of several drain holes at the very bottom of your door. Check for water leaking from the bottom of your plastic door panel. The water runs down into the door and leaks through your inner door panel seal causing water to leak inside from the bottom of your door panel and run into the floorboard instead of draining out the water hole in the bottom of your door.

SOURCE: I have a 2003 vw passat and I need to know where

What engine is in this passat? Radiator is simple enough, on the left hand of the radiator on the very bottom of it there will be a ridged tapered nipple sort of thing, about a half inch long. Just unscrew that and open the header tank. Generally the thermostats arent too hard to find. Forward facing normally under three bolts.

I am getting water in the truck of my car - right side only above tire well.


Perhaps the parrafin/Under tge windscreen is full of stuff (leaves or mus) There are bormally drainage holes for the water.
Alao sometime the interiour filter housing is under there somewhere and may also let water in
Will depend on the vehicle

1999 volvo s70 problems What must I do to get the rain water drainage system working properly ?


Do you have a sunroof? Cars have drainage holes up there that often drain into the door jamb on the front doors and sometimes down the rear pillars and behind the trunk/boot lining and exit the car near the wheel wells. Often, the connection at the top to the pipe comes off at the top corner of the windscreen.

Others have the same problem. Sunroof drain mentioned and how to fix.

Water is on the floor by foot pedals of my matiz. had windscreen checked. if car parked .it pours on to pedals when car moves , only after it rains. what could it be?


Also check the drainage channels beneath the windscreen wipers. You may have to remove the air induction panel to get right inside and check of water drainage issues or for rot. This vehicle is very prone to early stage corrosion in many areas.

VW Fox. My front windscreen wipers wont work. I cannot see that they are frozen as the washer works ok. I have checked the manual and it say the fuses for wipers is located at no 29, the only problem is...


My wife has a 08 Fox and her front wipers stopped working it's just a fuse in bank 7 a 10 amp just replace with a new one or swap for the 10 amp fuse in bank 11 (just a warning lamp for the handbrake) until you get a new one. ;-)
