Dear Forum Users

Routine Maintenance Procedure 48 (RM48) in the J-H workshop manual requires owners/maintainers to "check that the drain holes in the body and doors are clear, this will allow rain water and condensation to drain freely from the panels".

Where are these drain holes? I have seen on other posts that there should be drain holes at the bottom of the inner/outer wing (fender) voids in front of and behind the doors, and in the sills (rockers) themselves. How are the drain holes in the voids accessed? Via the sill drain holes? Or does one have to remove the stone-guards in the wheel arches to get to them?

Are there any other drain holes? When I wash my GT I note that water collects at the front of the front inner wing upper and lower rails, just behind the headlight cowel and just in front of the forward chassis mounting point. Should there be drain holes here too?

Any advice greatly appreciated. It is definitely the rust season here in the UK - cold and damp!

Best wishes,
Nigel
