Lots of water trapped in sill !

Postby rob987_0 » Thu Jul 13, 2017 9:08 pm

When I pulled away this morning I could hear water gushing from the passenger side when I braked. When I looked out the rear window I could see a trail of water all the way out of the estate. It was coming out of the passenger side sill right next to the tyre (behind the carpet)

Are there supposed to be holes in the sills for drainage?
A body shop sprayed the sills and welded some patches on recently so I'm wondering whether they have covered drainage holes?

Also tonight I've found the carpet under the passenger seat is soaking wet!

I'm wondering whether to drill a few small holes on the bottom of the sills?

Also if the water can't get out of the sills it will come into the interior via the taped up holes in the inner sills.

Thanks for that! I have drilled four holes on both sides. Hopefully I'll not have any more problems!!
