    Default 2011 gets even worse!

    Ok, so after forking out over £700 so far this year I have encountered a new problem :-( spent 5 hours cleaning the motor this morning then nipped to take some bulbs back to Halfrauds whilst on my way there the vent were spraying water onto the windscreen (inside) this problem has now stopped but I niticed there was a puddle in my passenger footwell, popped the bonnet and noticed water running down the back wall of my engine bay, any ideas?

    Check all of the grommets in that side of the engine bay, under the scuttle panel. If ones loose then water can run down there.

    Boy I love this site, 3 minutes work and problem solved! Unblocked the hole in scuttle panel (which was a nasty job) then all the excess water gushed out the bottom of the engine bay!
