water

I have a EB and when i wash it water runs out from the bottom of the front quarter panel. Im guessing this is the water run off from the windscreen.
My question is does water run out of both sides or is it only the right it drains from. I am unshore if mayb the hole is blocked on one side and i should be opening it b4 rust sets in.
I hope that makes sense.


My car is powered by FORD 5.8

If you open your bonnet you will see that the water channel is made to slope towards the right. For this reason, 90% of the water from the windscreen will drain out from the right quarter panel and a very small amount from the left. I would clean out the drain holes still because they are usually full of leaves. I just cleaned mine out two days ago with a vacuum.

To get to the drain hole, you don't need to remove the quarter panel, only the plastic trim inside the guards. I found a lot of mud built up in the lower corner of the quarter panel. It would have started to rust.
