I probably made a mistake last week when a mate of mine asked how my 1998 W208 CLK was shaping up and I replied 'Oh bloody brilliant no problems at all!' Because today I've discovered a bit of a problem....... here goes. Like most of the country over the past few days we have had heavy rain here in South Yorkshire but yesterday afternoon it was of biblical proportions. The hail and rainshower that we had at 3pm yesterday resulted in the roof at my work place being unable to cope and we had a flash flood. We coped with that but I'm not sure that I can with what was to follow!!! This morning, again after another night of heavy rain, I jumped into the old CLK to drive to work and for some reason unknown to myself decided not to listen to the radio/CD/Ipod or any in car entertainment which is unusual for me- with hindsight a good job I did. Well after probably a mile or so I thought that I kept hearing water or the sound of it sloshing about. It was particularly noticeable as I set off from traffic lights or being stationary at a roundabout. At first I thought it was my imagination but it continued throughout my 14 mile journey to work in Rotherham. When I got to the car park at work I decided to make a check round the vehicle and found the rear offside footwell carpet soaking wet. It had previously always been dry, as still are the rest of the carpets in the other footwells. 'OK' I thought 'Wet carpets doesn't account for the sloshing sound though', so I continued to investigate and looked to the two rubber drain holes that you find at either end of the sills. I literally just pushed my little finger in each of these and a torrent of water poured out of both holes. So now I am happy to say that I have no sloshing sound, but do have a very soggy rear offside footwell. I am at a loss to know how such an amount has accumulated in I presume the sill and how to stop it happening again, so I turn to the wisdom of the forum to see if anyone has any useful advice or suggestions to remedy this. The car does have a factory fitted electric sunroof, if that is relevant, and all rubber seals (as far as I can see) appear to be in good shape. I've learnt though that the next time somebody asks me as to the health of the car, not to be so bloody upbeat!!
