There`s a drain pipe in there that can get blocked. A thin piece of wire pushed down should clear it.

I have the same. Thanks for reply.

Do you where all are the drain pipes located throughout the Z3?

Dead Centre below the filler, if you get as much water out with a sponge it should become apparent if you run your finger over it.
