cleaning the carpet should do the trick, rug doctor carpet cleaner from  morrissons are ok for this, they have a long pipe, good for doing cars.

Hi  Dan,   don't push any thing in to the heater unit as there are two matrix units inside one for air con and one for the heater, just clean the heater unit pipe with a cotton bud, and use water to clean rubber pipe if its not blocked you will see the water come out under the car.

Hi,  you mention air con drain, to check the drain pipe, you need to remove the drivers side centre consul foot well panel to get to it, it will be a small right angle rubber pipe at the bottom of the heater unit,  see if it is blocked as you could get a back-up of condensation in the heater unit, which could find it way to the vents under the drivers seat,  hope this helps you.

Hi, I am with Ian on this one, I  also  use method 2, just in case I snap off the bleed nipple, I also have had no problems doing it this way for a lot of years,   there again its your car do it the way you think is best for you, or take it to a garage.

Hi, have a look at the lights plug, if it as been arcing  it could alter the molecule structure of the metal parts in the plug, giving intermittent contact making the bulb go on/off. if it as been arcing, a replacement would be needed
