I have not spoken to the valet about this. The small grills are missing - I guess pushed down. I cannot see them as the aperture is so small. Every time it rains I have to use a sponge to get rid of the water. It seems that there is no real drainage - i don't know if it is blocked.

Hi again..

Thank you for your reply and info.

I mentioned speaking to the valet place because really - as they have caused this, they should put it right for you -

As far as I can tell, you are going to need a new panel there - if they have broken them away -or damaged them. Im any event the panel will have to be removed - taken off - see if they are - and then re align if they will -- if not - then again, the panel has to be replaced... I cant tell you a price I'm afraid - for that , you would need to ring a Vauxhall parts dept - give them the VIN of the car - and then they can then look up the exact part and tell you the price....

Im afraid thats the only way forward with this - to then see exactly what they have done - and then to be able to put it right.

Im really sorry its not straightforward- but that is the way on this one..

Ultimately the drains for the water come out at the front of the rear wheels - at the very back end/ corner of the sill - both sides.

Im very pleased to have helped / advised you - Do let me know if you need anything more --
