      Default Water in the footwell - qwick fix

      Ive got the good old water in the footwell.

      Ive seen the below guide which is very good but it wouldn't take me 8.5 hrs more like 3 days.

      Is there a quick fix for this maybe just clearing the drains and letting the car dry natuarrly?

      and what is the easiest way to clean the drains?

      When I cleaned mine I use Mr Mussel Drain Unblocker and a piece of wire, to poke any crap through.

      There isn't really a quick method, as the sound deadening will more than likely be soaked though. It will start to smell if not dried properly.

      Rubber backed carpet, keeps the water out but keeps it in just as well.

      Depends how far back the water is, I unblocked and then lifted the carpet up from the side (removed compartments) and just cut out the foam from under the carpet and dried with blue roll and heat gun over a period off 2 weeks.

      Smell has gone now and it's all dry

      The drain holes under my scuttle panel where completely blocked with leaves and gunk, luckily (by complete chance) I found the issue before any damage was caused...

      There was a good 2L of water collected in the scuttle area splashing around!

      If I turn the radio off and take a couple of corners I can hear the water behind the dash somewhere.

      Some is getting through cos when I leave the car stationary it looks like it's wet it's self.
