    Plenum Blocked

    Hi all,

    Is the s type known for blocked plenum drains. Unfortunately my car spends a lot of time under a tree and I have noticed the water does not drain away very well from the plenum area.

    If I strip of the scuttle panel and wipers is there any drains to unblock?

    There is a scuttle drain on the passenger side and the windscreen wiper holes have drains too I think. It may be year dependant.
    The only regular issues with drains are; either the scuttle leaking water between it and the windscreen, this leak goes down the bulkhead and possibly in the brake servo. Or the drain near the pollen filter getting blocked which leads to water in the footwell.
    Sunroof drains, I guess, might be an issue too.
