How easy is it to block the windscreen drain hole?

Recommended Posts

I park in front of next door's large hedge and there are constantly bits blowing onto the front of my car. These bits collect at the bottom of the windscreen and then get washed down the drain hole near the base of the wiper mechanism. I dig out a many as i can but lots go down there, is it possible that they could block this hole?

Its about 2cm.

 

More of a concern is that crap accumulating on top of the front floor panel. But it easy and interesting to get it off every so often and do a clean and inspection.

no, by removing the undertray/floor while the car is on jacks or a lift.

 

the water drain pipes (there are 2 from memory) drain out into the wheelarch or the onto the undertray/floor (I can't remember which). There is a hole on the floor to let water out but if its leaves they will accumulate ontop of the floor. It's no big deal, there is plenty of space in there but it's good to get in there and clean it once in a while.

 

The inspection hatch drains down on the floor as well. So if screenwash is spilt it's no problem.
