    Is there a rainwater drain beneath the front windscreen wipers on a Range Rover Sport (05)? It's not an Air Con or sunroof problem? Any help much appreciated.

    No. I mean I've just changed it. While I was trying to find the cause of the wet. There's only one above the (fns) glove box.

    Then it could be the sunroof leaking, and the water travailing down the pillar and to the floor, check the tube isnt blocked or cracked, and it still attached

    Just because the polen filter is dry doesn't mean it's not leaking through the box that holds it that's where I was getting a leak

    Or the screws that hold the filter housing. Have you checked your A/C drains are clear?

    Please refer back to my original question. Is there anyone out there with any knowledge as to whether there is a rain water drain beneath the scuttle below the windscreen wipers?

    @Colonial,
    "Its not an Air con or sunroof problem?":confused::confused:

    Your use of a question mark renders the above neither a statement of fact nor a question, it's ambiguous.
    Here's a linky to the the roof drains anyway.:)
