Hello,
Due to heavy rains, the ECU box on my B7 was flooded. Hopefully only a relay was blown and it was changed.
My question is, can I drill 2 drain holes to avoid this happening again ? Or is there a risk of having moisture etc ?

Sorry if this appears a dumb question, but how did water get in? Aren't they sealed?

Can it be repositioned or can it have some sort of shield over it to deflect water away ?
It would be very difficult to deflect the water away based on the design Audi has done..

It should, one screw missing at the back... Probably done by the ex owner.


I want to be on the safe side, my question is, is it an issue to have 2 holes in the ECU box for water drainage ?
