Question Blocked rainwater drainage channel under boot lid

Hi my gtr r35 has a blocked drainage channel where the rainwater is supposed to drain away from the boot area. It is the off side and it looks like the water should run away just above the OS light cluster into the wing area and away. There is a plastic cap which does not look easy to remove at the end to the channel. Anyone know of a way to clear this and thus stopping rainwater gathering all around in the channel around the top of the boot opening?

remove debris from the gap between light cluster and metal bodywork

I posted on this a while back

I use a cable tie and push between the gap and wiggle it to dislodge the grime, you'll then see the water flow free and exit out of the car by the exhausts.
Good tip thanks, all this time and I'd never noticed/heard of this!.. probably as I don't use the boot much.. Anyhow cleaned mine up and cable ties used to clear the drain slits.

Before - blocked+swimming!



After - flowing, cables ties in place as an example, then removed and kept in door basket.

Got to agree only spotted it by accident when we had heavy rain and I had to go into boot.
