    Hi Malcolm,

    Do you have anything for the R171?.. I've found three drains in the water catcher (front screen), one in the battery compartment, 2 in the boot from the rear of the tin top (these are easy, just disconnect and blow through).. So i know where the entry points are, just could do with exit points??

    When car was last MOT'd had a look underneath when on the ramp, found 2 drains, one either side of the prop shaft/gearbox, haven't a clue where entry points are for these!!

    Any help would be much appreciated :)

    On the assumption that Wireman is still here somewhere, many thanks for the info regarding the drains. I couldn't have cleared it without your photos.

    Hi

    Not sure if its any use here, I also have a Discovery 3, the sunroof drains block very frequently, similarly on my old R170 SLK the scuttle drains used to get blocked. For each of these I have always used a large length of curtain wire. It has never failed to work.

    I tried compressed air once as well. That didn't end well when it over pressurised and ruptured a blocked tube

    Yes, here:

    But it would make sense to order some other items at the same time to justify the €14 shipment costs.

    Hi Ray, Thankyou for your reply, I will take a look at this. As you say shipment cost do not justify the part cost but I will see what else I need.
