TBH the only ones I’m looking for are the ones just under the windshield next to the wipers. I can see the one on the passenger side but for the life of me can’t see anything on drivers side ...

Noticed the other day the drivers side corner of it seemed to have an inch of water in it but the left was obviously clear...

Is it just 1 drain on that or more than 1?

I am sure there will be a few more. If it had one drain on one side and you parked on an incline the lower side would be sloshing over,
Sorry no idea on your car, but on mine, there are 4 tubes and I am trying to work out if there are 5 entry points.?

There are at least 4 here, and I suspect a few more in the bulkhead between the cabin and the engine bay area.

I found one on the driver side ..suspect it’s blocked slightly due to time it takes to drain .... though no idea how to get into the beggar ..

Nobody got a diagram of it?

I think yours will be the same as mine, I just aimed a jet wash at it from about 12" and it cleared easily, it was crud over the grille on the top.

There are 3 drains in total, one each side and one in the middle
