Hard-to-Find 107 Drain Holes

I am still chasing leaks on my 380SL. I noticed that water would pool in the little well under the wiper "drives," on the driver's side but not on the passenger side. I assumed that there was some sort of problem with a seal on the passenger side that was allowing water to get in under the cowl.

Not so. There are very small drain holes at the bottom of both wells that allow water to run into the cowling and then out the drains on the outside of the blower motor chamber. The passenger side hole was quite plugged.
