147 leak advice


I've got wet footwells in the front of my 147. I think I've narrowed it down to the sunroof as my most recent leak involved water coming out of the grab handle above my head as I went round a left hand bend....Not something I've come across in any other posts on here!

On a fairly regular basis water seems to be running down the vertical bit of carpet to the right of the pedals and also gets onto the back of the bonnet release handle.

I'm planning on taking the bit of plastic off at the bottom of the windscreen and clearing it of leaves this weekend. From other posts it sounds like the ends of the sunroof drains are blocked as well and that I can get to them at the same time. Someone mentioned feeding strimmer wire down the drains to clear them so i might give this a go....

Just wondering if anyone had anything else I should be looking out for? Or an alternative suggestion for clearing the drains out?

Cheers in advance.
