So the weather looks really nice for this weekend here in sunny Bristol - so i'm intending to spend a couple of hours doing some winter prep including cleaning the drain holes...

anyone know of a good YouTube video that shows the best way of doing this...??

Thanks in advance

Remove the plastic rivets out the front part of your rear wheel arch liners, pull the liner back to reveal the drain hole, pour water over the side of the soft top between rear quarter window and rear of soft top so water runs down the drain, then poke the shoite out the drain hole with a knitting needle or the likes. Jump back quick whilst everything comes flooding out.

Don't forget to put your liner back in place and replace the plastic rivets Thumb

Also take the rear speakers out and remove the splashguard to make sure that the tray is clear and the tubes are connected and not split.

More info here thanks to Alex and others previously
