I'm glad the reminder has helped someone, I couldn't remember seeing a reminder for a while so figured I'd best do it (remind people) this time.

I've just done mine. Lots of **** in there, but otherwise dry
Pollen filter was stinky though so I've replaced that.

I know a few people like working on their own cars, but don't like getting underneath a raised car (even on stands etc). I'm not one of them, but I managed to clear the drivers side from underneath in no time with the car on the deck. I must have got lucky because I stuck my hand up around where I thought the drain plug would be, and hit right on it! A bendy aerial off of an old car up the tube, back out and job was a good'n! So it can be done, but probably much easier in most cases to get he car in the air...

Had the pollen filter out today trying to trace smell when using aircon - did spyhole mod at the same time - pollen filter dry as a bone as was plenum this time and didn't smell either, , so I've treated the aircon with the foamy stuff again (4 years with the 820 never touched the aircon and no smells )

Mine stays dry and unclogged, but then I have the 'Jules' Plenum mod (about £10), and the 'Spy-hole' mod by Arctic. We also live high up, above the tree line and my car is always garaged at night, so not much leaf debris.

This is a nice little modification. It allows you to rod the drain below the ECU without removing the splash shield.

Just giving this thread a bit of thought, especially with the Autumn months ready to fall upon us.

Checkout Jules shop for his own design Plenum Guard. It's a great bit of kit, no leaves can pass it and it looks like it was a OEM fitting.

The picture shows a drain plug in the position that you would expect a grommet to be fitted to, even though very little water actually runs though it, I feel it's better to be in place.
