I’ve seen the threads suggesting weed eater line. But it seems nonsensical to have to repeatedly, periodically stick things in these openings to keep them draining.
I’ve tried every one of these feeler gauges that are stiff enough, and cannot get them in. Just seems to me there is little downside to splashing some primer around, and opening these slits so they drain 24/7/365, not once every few years with plastic wire.
Am I missing the big picture ?
Although I cleared mine, I still like having the drain hoses rerouted through the floor plugs, which still fit behind the plastic footwell trim. I don’t know how well the stock plugs seal in the first place if you get into deep enough water, but if one wanted to do this, it would be easy to create a waterproof seal, as the hoses are only barely smaller than the hole.
