Hi guys.

 

It has been raining heavily for a few days here and while loading my trunk, I noticed stagnant water on the right hand side, between the edge of the fender and the trunk lid seal (see picture). The left hand side is dry, so I assume there must be a drain somewhere, which is clogged on one side. Price question: where is this drain located and where does it end so I can try to unclog it, maybe blow it out with a compressor?

 

Best greetings and have a nice sunday,

Fritz

The drain is clogged. Usually by debris like rotting leaves and dirt. I'm not sure where that drain goes or the best way to clean it but removing the rear bumper is where I would start.

Make sure to always clean that area every time you wash your car and avoid parking car under trees unless you have a good cover.

Yep drain is clogged. Both corners have a small drain that dumps that water under the bumper cover.

Depending on the year (CBA), check your front tool kit as that is a common problem as well. Water drains from the cowl into the firewall and ends up collected in the tool kit.

AMS has a simple fix.

normally i just close me eyes and blow the s**t out of it lower right and left. If you open the trunk and see some leaves or anything clean asap so it does not clog.

 

greetings,

Robert

A can of compressed air and the fine tube attached may clean out your drain .......I blow mine out once in a while after washing.......

I did some cleaning between the bumper and the body. Seems like the water flows more freely now. Thankfully, there's no water at the front end like droptopp suggested. Tool kit is dry as well.
