should be good then mate. its worth giving them a poke (not being rude!) every now and then to make sure they are clear. The black screw caps are a sh1t to put on, i think there might be a knack to it.
Did you not notice the drivers side grille has vents when you did the job?



LOL..No I didn't notice ...the first time I took the passenger side "grille " off it was a bit tricky and I was concentrating on that ...second time was easier but I still never looked at the other side even when I removed one of the screw caps on that side to see how they fitted on ....I think the cap and screw are a matching pair so the screw head fits tightly into the cap. ..I'll need to get a couple of replacements as one is completely missing on the passenger side and the "grille" is not as tight down as it could be and obviously there is a hole where the screw /cap should be .It wd look neater with the caps in place .

iirc the grilles dont like being refitted much, i think they must have trained one person to do the job and he did them all. :biggrin: if ford have none (they've started discontinuing some bits) you might need to nip to the breakers for some.

Went down yesterday afternoon ( roasting hot and sun splitting the trees and no sign of rain anytime soon) and armed with a watering can poured water over the windscreen and lo and behold some water appeared in the passenger footwell on a newspaper I had placed there so took your advice and had a look for the drain holes. Now previously on the drivers side all i had seen was what appeared to be an opening way back in the corner and water poured in there flowed to ground quite freely but I could see no similar opening on the passenger side and water pured in there found most of it going down in to the engine bay so I poked around and found a 1/4" (or so) hole slightly further forward and it was hidden by a plastic piece that could be swivelled across to uncover it ...I poked it clear and all seemed well after that ...water poured on the w/screen now flowed to ground quite freely on that side as well and this morning there was rain and no sign of water on the newspaper so looks like it's all sorted ......The questions I have are (1) why are the drain arrangements on each side different and (2) is this plastic piece I mentioned to prevent "stuff" clogging up this drain hole on the passenger side .
