Leak near clutch pedal

Okay so I went for a car wash, and when I went back inside I saw a couple drips of water fall near the clutch... I heard its from the sunroof drian and that its slightly plugged and that I need to use a compressor to force the stuff bocking it out... is this correct if so where do I spray the air or how else am I suppose to get rid of the plug. Thanks

Re: Leak near clutch pedal

Take off your fender - and you'll see the tube. try cleaning it out from there first.

shooting an air compressor down there "could" blow the line off of the connection to the outside (if it's not already fallen off due to being blocked)

so try cleaning it out carefully with a small flat head wrapped in some electric tape or something....

Re: Leak near clutch pedal

be careful not to rip through the hose lol. They are pretty thick but still. Hopefully it didn't come lose already.


to test when you're done - open the sun roof and park your car with the front aiming down a driveway or something. in the little tray going around the edge of the sunroof opening - pour a cup of water around it and you can see if the water comes out the front or not to determine if thats whats going in the car/ if they are blocked and no water comes out from behind the front wheels

do the same to test the back - put it aiming downhill and repeat.

Well, little risky but at least you got it fixed lol


Check the bolts where it mounts to the car - if you want a picture of what the bottom of the seats look like, i have mine sitting here... they make good indoor chairs :P

You're burning oil (as most h22's do) hopefully it's nothing too bad, basically you need to check the entire motor... valve seals etc

Ya next weekend Im going to rip that car apart cause I need to find out where its leaking from we can get some nasty storms here in Winnipeg.

I will also check out the gasket soon cause I am going to get my valve cover powder coated somtime.

Thanks for all the help
