Hmm, there looks like there should have been more water in there given the state of the filter. That looks wet for an inch at the bottom?

Hardly any to be honest. I'm hoping there isn't a blockage in the pipe.
Me too, once the pipe has collapsed you will need to constantly keep cleaning it out to stop it filling up or else you will have to fix the root problem which is not easy or cheap

There wasn't an inch of water in the bottom when I took the filter out though.
Just remembered I took this pic.

It was just wet at the bottom. I cleared the leaves out and replaced the filter.

Thank you very much for this, incredibly detailed and makes the job really straightforward. All dried out and sorted now.
Thanks again,
Gary

Hi guys, and thanks for this great tutorial.
I plan on doing this operation soon, but I wonder, is it really necessary to take the rubber hose off?
Can't I just insert some kind of flexible wire to remove the majority of the debris, let the water come out, and then use compressed air to blow off the remaining stuff?

Its so simple to do I think its easier that poking and potentially damaging something.

You also can cut the flap end of the drain to stop it from happening again.

Follow the drivers side of the centre console up towards the back of the radio and you will find it about an inch round (sort of squarish really)

Can I just ask if people just silicone on the guard for the motor/intake after its been removed? Do people just cut the old stuff off?
