This doesn't sound good when you bring water into the equation. It's really hard to say without an inspection. Hopefully there are some Mercedes techs who have seen this before! Good Luck! And it's about time we get some rain in California!

Old post and Im sure you have the problem resolved. I think it's important to clear the water drains at the front glass as most fuse boxes and some control units, relays etc. are found in this area. I try not to park under trees as the leaves and twigs just love to plug the drains.
