Cowl drains on the Jaguar AC system need to be cleaned out

Under the wiper arms, there is fresh air inlet for the a/c system. This inlet has a drain called a Cowl drain, so that rain water doesn't back into the a/c system. If the drain(s) become clogged, rainwater will flood the dash of your car (and your feet, carpet, etc). The drains are inside the engine bay, right next to the wiper arm area. Make sure they are clean! If they are cracked. broken or missing we sell them. It is very important to have them installed and working properly or you will have wet feet!
