    Heavy rain, Water leak

    I had an absolute mare getting the grommet out, did it by drilling a hole through grommet and using the end of a tent peg to yank it out, I then fitted new one. Found out my leak was down to a poorly fitted screen in the end so abit of a wasted excerise. I have however left the panel off, I did various water tests and it missed the grommet and flows out onto undertray.

    Rear tyre change

    The time has come to change my rear tyres I've had a good price on some Falken azenis FK510 run flats , they have an A rating in the wet, has anyone has had any experience with them? Thanks

    My leak has been solved thankfully, A very poorly fitted windscreen prior to me having the car was the issue. The bond was missing in the bottom left hand corner, and thats where water was entering, Thankfully all dry now.

    Car has gone into the garage, water entering fuse area, and puddling in footwell the grommit problem has been eliminated, so god knows where this is coming from. very disappointing

    After the heavy rain last night footwell got a puddle in it, even after changing the grommit, think it may be time to get the wheel arch liner off. So frustrating

    I haven't got a sunroof, i dont think its the screen as i really did give it a good walloping yesterday and nothing came in. I drilled a 8mm hole in the cover over the yellow grommit on my last attempt, as an extra precaution and it still found its way in even parking nose down as i do. I will have to wait and see the new grommet works if not will have to take wheel arch covering off

    Thank you but at the moment its comcentrated only in the front footwell, (pic attached). Ive changed the grommet and poured loads of water over the windscreen yesterday and it kept dry, real test will be hours of rain i imagine, the water seemed to fly out of both wheel arches, which tells me there's no blockage there.

    Ive just had it apart and changed the yellow grommit this time, also drilled a slighty bigger hole in the cover, next thing will be to take the wheel off and check under the wheel arch

    Update: having cleaned the area out immaculately and making sure all the channels are free i was fairly confident i had cured it, ive just checked my car after having a long spell of rain and the footwell is absolutely soaked again! i did buy a replacement grommet, but it was so tough to get out i left the old one in, as i was confident the grommet would keep the water out after the clean.

    I took your advice, and left the grommit in place it was so tight, i gave everything a good clean out and a flush through. I made the small modification of drilling a small hole above the seal on the access panel too. Cuts all over my arm but wasnt as bad as i thought. Ill keep hold of the spare grommit just in case.
