    Ok I'm wet now. Found them and could not find away of keeping dry.

    Won't these pips fill up again?

    Regarding the sunroof I still can't find these rubber things. Photos are not clear.
    Are they in the wheel arch

    Should have stuck with my trooper

    I have no idea.
    Stick to photocopiers me thinks

    I can't see how the sunroof would cause water in the front passenger footwell but I thought it would be a good idea to do them anyway

    Still can't find front or rear openings.

    And I've just bloody cut my self &#128553;

    If you open the sun roof can you blow the drains clear with an air line, or is there a chance of blowing the pipes off?

    Look behind the liners at all four wheels, don't be tempted to insert anything sharp into the tubes or you may have real water problems

    As far as I can see you can do this with the front as I can see the whole but I think the rear whole you can't get to as I can't see the bugger

    Won't the air con pipes fill up with water again

    Only if they are blocked....clean them out!!

    Welcome to Range Rover ownership....what would seem improbable or impossible...becomes the possible and probable...the possimpable....

    Sunroof drains run from the sunroof INSIDE the car above the head lining, then down the window A pillar and rear window C pillar and exit by the wheel arch....so if a pipe splits or cracks....or even a well meaning owner pokes a knitting needle or coat hanger wire up there and tears the pipe...it can leak into the car....

    Not necessarily....if that side isn't blocked or split it won't leak into the other side....or vice versa...

    As above.... forget logic...this is a Range Rover....'expect the unexpected'

    Ok guys you have four pipes from the sunroof
    One in each wheel arch
    If you decide to do this job make sure you have loads of plasters and rag to mop up the blood as the inner wheel arch covers bite.

    Another way to seal pollen filters is use self adhesive foam draft excluder just stick it round the hole, screw covers back job done no mess and removeable any time.
