S class drains

Hi all, just a thought but has anybody come up with a cure to stop the drains getting blocked so allowing water to seep into the car and damage the electrics? I am talking of the S class 320 cdi 2004 model which as I understand can be a problem on these cars? any comments would be welcome as I am on the verge of purchasing one :-)

Re: S class drains

The drains get plugged and trap water in the car.
Best bet is to, once and a while, climb underneath with a plastic crochette needle and gently insert into all three drain nipples and drag gently out along with debris.
If the drain is plugged it will allow floorpan to retain water that finds it's way into vehicle.
A little squirt of light oil up in each helps keep those rubbers supple as well.
