Hello everyone. I thought I would firstly share my experience for others and secondly ask a question:
1) Failed Aircon Fan
For several months I had heard a sloshing of water from the engine compartment whilst turning a corner, and was perplexed. Also the aircon far sometimes made some mild unusual whine noises. Then, the aircon fan abruptly stopped completely. I took to Halfords, who said the area under the windscreen was awash with water and the fan was completely under water. They drained it, cleared the gullies that were blocked with debris from trees (etc): £50. Motor still didn't work, but they suggested it might do after it had thoroughly dried out. After 2 days the motor started, but only bleware on recycle mode. After a few more days, it works completely. Great! (But need to be careful parking under trees, etc)
2) Water in rear door
Now I have also noticed sloshing water in a rear door, but can't see any obvious way it's supposed to drain. Any recommendations? Is it worth trying to remove the plastic trim or is the metal door welded into a sealed unit (I suspect). I think I may need to drill a hole in the bottom to let it out, but wanted to check with anyone here in case they had advice/experience.
