    Hi, driving to work on Friday I noticed an unusual sound of "swishing" water when I turned left or right, so I had a look in the plenum between the two bulkhead and guess what I found ... yep, water! So I promptly drained all the water out using a turkey baster (?!) and had a good look around inside the plenum to see if the drains were blocked. I found one to the right side (looking at the car head on) of the battery, which I've cleared, but I can't find the other one (I've read that there are 2). Are there any pictures or diagrams that show the location of the drains, or failing that, could someone please do their best at trying to describe the location of the missing drain.

    Oh, and while I'm at it ... how do you get the battery out? I've removed the + and - cables, moved the wiring loom out of the way and removed the securing bracket with a long 6mm hex key but still can't get the battery out. Do I also need to remove the scuttle to lift the battery out?

    This diagram will help in determining the approximate location.

    Look at the 2 number 13’s in the second diagram down:

    From memory i think the one on the left side (drivers side) i removed from underneath. The brake servo is in the way so you can't easily get to it from above. I think i jabbed a screwdriver in it to lever it out

    If you are Manuel gearbox the other drain incorporates the clutch pipe so just cut the flaps off and leave in place so the pipe will not rub or vibrate on the body.

    Just remove No 20, its easy to remove from below the plenum chamber, no need to remove the battery, push a screwdriver into the edge of it and prise it out.
