C3 Picasso drain holes?

Post by Michel »

Hi All,

Mrs. Michel’s C3 Picasso has got a problem where the driver’s side floor gets wet through when it rains heavily. I can’t work out where it’s getting in. I can *hear* it sloshing around somewhere behind the dash, but where? I have no idea. I’ve looked under the scuttle panel, the area is dry and there doesn’t appear to be anything blocking drain holes *that I can see*. The pollen filter is dry and the whole area seems to be dry.

Any ideas gratefully received!

Thanks
Mike

I think you'll find the culprit will be where the pollen filter is located behind the plastic panel once you have the scuttle off Mike (on the left as you look at the car facing the bumper.

Video here may show it better:

Brilliant, thanks Marc! I’d mistaken the larger hole for the drain. Now unblocked and working, but I’ll do a better job of it tomorrow. It’s really packed full of crud.

No worries - I expect it'll be similar to our Aircross when I inspect it in about a year. :)
