    Default had a flood!

    with all the wet weather the last few days... was on the way back from a day out and the wife commented that her handbag was soakin.. checked the footwell and it was sodden!...
    quick check about the pollen filter and drain hole and it was what you called clogged up..water leaking over the rim of the pollen filter so thats where the problem was!... unblocked the drain hole and there was what you call a torrent of water free'd.. problem solved... although it needs the vax to soak up the water and a new pollen filter!

    Can't believe Vauxhall haven't got a better mod for this problem. This was happening back on the Nova's and Astra's as they too had that stupid rubber drain hose that always clogged up with muck!

    Why couldn't they make it out of plastic so that it would stay open and let the water out? Too difficult i guess!

    Snowman, you got your ears on?
