3 Questions on 2002 5 speed 147

Hi All
Love my 147 (only done 65,000 in 9 years!) but it's getting on a bit and three problems have arisen. Anyone with input would be great.

1) The drainage duct from the windscreen keeps getting block with leaves etc. and leads to dampness on passenger carpet and also effects sun roof (I assume it shorts it out.) When my mechanic clears it this is good for a couple of months and then comes back. He has made the drainage holes bigger but I think they just keep getting blocked with leaves etc. Suggestions - can't find any other threads on this one!

2) My pedals (manuel BTW) make a crunching noise, mainly clutch. Mechanic has tried many things but says now he'll need to remove the pedals and replace plastic washer type devices. Not costly in parts but it is in labour costs. Appears a few others have had this...

3) My VDC/ABS warning lights come on all the time. It's been reset but mechanic says he needs to either replace unit or send it away to be reconditioned. Having read earlier posts looks like a change of battery may fix it (mine is probably 4 years old)

BTW - I trust my mechanic but just wanna know if there are any other suggestions out there in Alfa world!
