Puddles



  • Hi peeps,

    First off if you celebrate it, Merry Christmas, if not, well there we are then, so onto my question (as always)

    The snow is out there and its being brought into the footwell and soaking into to luxurious deep pile carpet, this has created a puddle that wont go away. I saw on top gear, on one of there challenges they used a rifle and shot a hole in the area to drain it out, not being legal and slightly dangerous I was wondering if anyone has any alternatives to this?



  • There's a rubber plug in the floor almost dead centre of the driver's seat. Pops up into the car - poke from underneath it and you have a drain hole.



  • wow! that was not just fast but also genius, ta muchly :D



  • **:lol:

    Didn't notice the timing :D I'd go and grab a photo, but both my '3s are under 97 feet of snow right now…**



  • Note, there are two in the boot under the spare wheel as well :)



  • Not to worry, I will find the plug, just amazed its got one really. I am in and out of the car all day every day on visits so in this weather its good to know theres a solution, I can see it getting smelly if its left as it is, as the water gets quite warm after a while.



  • To take moisture out of a wet car, leave a bowl of rice or salt in the footwell.
