Hi all,

Noticed after washing my car on Saturday the passenger side windscreen drainage hole is blocked. Tried curtain wire to free the bugger but it did not work. Tried a coat hanger also again without success.
Anyone have any other solutions - dont really want to start taking the car apart!

Thanks chap.

You will be better getting to it from the bottom, and cut off the silly spout flaps

If it does not drop down into the engine compartment it will pass through the inner wheel arch and drain from there, am matter of removing the wheel arch liner.
I had this same problem on my CL 216 all the poking did not help so I got some strong bleach and filled the pipe and left it over night and the wire coat hanger passed through after a hard push, rotate the hanger as you push.
