Water drains

The water drains on the R170 become blocked with leaf litter etc. One bad thing from this is water ingress into the boot and then into the PSE unit.
Tey need to be cleaned from time to time, I use a length of 1/4" tube and an aircompressor.


To help reduce the problem I have put stainless flywire over front and inside rear drain cover.


Crud can then be hosed off when washing the car (if only we were allowed to do that down under ATM )
