    Possible leak from windshield - mine leaked a few years back and soaked the carpet. Had an auto glass shop reinstall the same window and leak gone! I also have the A/C issue that I have to clear out a few times a year.

    Thank you for the very helpful instructions. The procedures were spot on.
     
  5. How do I replace the drain pipe

    I wish I got hold of this forum before I pulled out the whole rubber pipe. (see attached photo)

    My problem is two fold. I had water dripping on the transmission switch causing it to give an error. I removed the pipe on the passenger side (R/H Drive) because of this. Then the carpets started to get soaked on passenger side. Haven't rained in a while in Cape Town.

    How do I refit this pipe and how do I stop it from dripping on the switch again.

    Kind regards

    Pierre

    Pictures of Drain Nipples

    Hey [email protected],

    I am currently working through the same issues on my '03 Disco II. My car acumen is quite low, but hopefully it's not the blind leading the blind.

    I have also attached two photos that I think may help. Please note, the passenger side drain nipple is missing on my Disco, but the driver's side is in place.

    Side note: If anyone has suggestions about missing drain nipples, I'd greatly appreciate some guidance!

    1. When crawling underneath, consider where you think the center console is in relation to where you are looking.

    2. I've heard other descriptions, but try to locate the "front-end" of the transmission is.

    3. When you've found this spot, you will see openings on either side. Your drain nipples are located in this area.

    Be sure to confirm that the Disco I has two drain nipples though (For some reason, I think I read that there is only one).

    I'd like thank all for the info!!!
    I have a 2001 Disco and it was dripping water onto both driver and passenger floorboards...
    I crawled under the front of the truck with a hyper bright LED flashlight,
    found the 2 drain nipples (one is above the xyz switch and the other is directly across from it),
    squeezed the nipples (tee hee!) to get the water and gunk out (a quite a bit of water came out of both drain holes),
    carefully stuck a long slim Phillips screwdriver in through the nipple to properly clean it out and the drain tube cavity,
    cleaned up the area with a rag.

    No leaks on the floorboard after 2 months and many air conditioner uses.

    I forgot to mention, on my Disco II the small rubber drain nipples can be removed and be reinserted. I learned that the hard way.

    Just arriving back home from the British Invasion in Stowe VT, had a swimming pool on the passenger side. Jacked up my 2004 Disco and bingo fixed the problem. Great stuff. Thank you.
