Default Minor water leak passenger front - 6th August 2017, 10:44 AM

For a short while I have had a small water leak on my front passenger door, or so I thought but wasn't too concerned as I have the mini rubber mats and the water always collected in it so no damp carpet. When the car went in for its MOT I mentioned this and as the car is out of warranty the dealer was only too happy to look at it for me but at a charge.
Needless to say I said to leave it and I would look at it myself. Thoroughly cleaned the door sprayed the door area with water, no leak so thought that I had cracked it, not so, next down pour another small puddle on my mat.
On investigating further I looked at the sunroof and the small drainage hole that goes down the front pillar. I found a piece a netting wire, the plastic coated type used for hanging netting in windows and used this to carefully check for any blockage. I met a small amount of resistance then managed to rod the full extent of the drain hole, viola leak resolved.
Hope this helps someone else with a similar problem.
