Default what a bad night.

well tonight after work i noticed some water on the passenger side plastic trim on the floor so i followed the water and i traced it to the sunroof drain hose. it has a hole in it and and its been raining here and so i lifted my mat and its all water so looked under the carpet and under the rubber mat and its water on the metal under everything and who knows how long its been leaking. so i put some sealent on the hole and it has to dry over night so i hope it doesnt rain too much tonight.

while looking around their i found some wires that were all rigged together and i followed them and they lead to the sunvisor mirror lights so i take off the screw (their should be 2) but it only has one screw so im taking it off and it all falls on me and i lost the tiny screw so i fix the wiring and i look for the screw and i cant find it anywhere so i figured the other side would have 2 so i could take one untill i find the other one well it has only one screw also. so i press it on their to hold it up for the night.
sorry to rant but my night has been crap hows your going?


so what should i do about the water?

Go to one of those gas station vacuums and vacuum the water out.

Sorry to here about your luck.

Sorry to hear you've had a bad night. Honestly not the worst we've heard. For the water problem, use a shop vac (w/o filter) to pull most of it out of the car. As soon as it stops raining leave you windows open as long as you can to dry it out. Should be ok.

For the screw. Take your trusty phillips head driver with you to a Home Depot or local hardware store (unless junkyard is closer). Take the remaining screw out and match it up. Buy 4 screws so they all match. You might not be able to get black but a magic marker will color them enough (before you put them in) to fool most passengers. Then when you get a chance, drop by your local junkyard. They won't charge you for a few screws, but you'll have to pull them yourself.

Hope this helps the evening get better and remember, there'* always more beer in the world.

Ok, well that still puts you under the legal limit in any state to operate a shop vac.

No, not out of luck, in luck as long as your supply of rum and coke lasts.
