SLK 320 2004
I have an old SLK320 2004. The drains around the back window have become blocked. Tried pushing electrical wire down the drain which goes so far and just sticks. I cannot find the drain exit points which I assume are under back wheels? Does anyone know how /if I can get to the exit hole? Just want to unblock the drains
Thanks

Hi and welcome. Do a search on here for some fairly detailed info on what l successfully did to my SLK earlier this year. Not 100% cured but good enough and still working very well.

Electrical wire might be a bit too stiff to get round a corner, I used to use Oregon 4mm square strimmer cutter line (which I happened to have when I had my big strimmer) which worked very well on my 968's, stiff enough to push but flexible enough to go round corners. You might be able to buy a few metres from a garden tools supplier.
