Wow what a day!!!

Well i've taken the interior apart to get the carpets out, to dry them out :D

We started with this



Progressed to this



and ended up with this (just waiting for my micro fibre cloths to dry to get water from the raised girder that supports the back of the seat)

I will no doubt ache like a good'un tomorrow (and i'm only 29!) But without doubt, the biggest pain in the arse was removing the rear seat...the workshop manual simply says 'give a pull upward'

God knows who works in their factory but they must be built like a brick s**t house! i needed a crowbar (but i'm not exactly an adonis so who knows)

On the plus side I discovered where the manual boot release is!

Wet carpets drivers side, due to overflowing drain hole / possible bad seal which i can now diagnose over the next few days!

Moel - you are a brave man to attack your car like that. I salute you (Thinks: Will it all go back together??) :)

Ben

There was 3/4's of an inch of standing water after i removed the carpet! No dehumidifier would have done that!
