yea I will do that mate, just waiting for it to stop raining... sick of it being steamed up every time I get in the dam thing!
Your rear washer pipe may have disconnected a little bit, open the boot in the left side at the top of the seat belt take of the plastic try above the cigarette socket in the boot, 3 screws I think, lift carpet back and the pipe is behind there it's worth a try, also hear the guide for the door seals.Mine isn't in the spare wheel well yet but I have an old sleeping bag on top so that might have absorbed it. I can see water trail on the plastic cover (on left) when you lift the base its a little damp. I will need to take the plastic off and see if I can see any thing underneath. Can you take a pic of where the seal is that you have located.
Be careful as your side impact sensors are under both front carpets, if they get wet You will need new ones and need to reset the airbag lightyea I will do that mate, just waiting for it to stop raining... sick of it being steamed up every time I get in the dam thing!
But if it was the pollen filter wouldn't the front footwell be wet as well? Mine is dry - only the rear passenger footwell has water in it.If the door seals are dry, it could be comming from the pollen filter. Has this been changed to your knowledge?
Don't wait for the next rainy day, sit in the car and have someone wet the car with a hose. Look for obvious water ingress.
You can wash the car then afterwards!
Pollen filter to be checked next then.Water soaks through to the from the front on both sides, pollen filter gets my vote too
Thanks Marv, I hosed down the car and checked both doors and under the glove compartment with the carpet and underlay pulled to one side. I couldn't see any water - when I opened the doors I had a bit of water on the outer sill but I guess that is expected. No water on the inner ones or in the car. I took the back seats off, plastic trims around the doors and raised both the carpet and underlay so I can get a good view.Juve - did you check out my photos?? It will be the Pollen Filter - take carpets up and get a hose onto the car - feel free to sit in it whilst someone hoses it down. The other place I had it was water building up under the door seal and getting into the car. You would need to take all the plastic trim from the rear door to see this as it happens under the plastic and under the carpet.
I have already done my door cards and pollen filter and had this build up under the door seal. I siliconed in the groove of the door seal and pushed it back insitu. No issues so far.
