I'm not sure you guys can help me with this prob.

Hello and welcome to just answer, my name is ***** ***** to help. I read your notes and if the water is not draining from the cowling area you will have to on clog the side drains on each side of the cowling and also clean out the top area of any debris. To properly clean the drains you have to remove the inner wheel well pannles and locate the drains and either run a weed wacker cord through them or blow out with are.To clean and inspect the top cowling area you have to remove the wiper ams so you can further remove the cover , it will have clips and screws holding it in place and then slide it out towards the front of the vehicle to remove it. Let me know if you need further help.

ok, I shall attempt to remove the inner wheel well panels and look for the drains, thanks.
