are the mk1 seats leon's known for having water leaks? i've only had mine for 2 weeks came home tonight to find all my window's steamed up.

looking inside the car i found that the carpets didn't feel wet but both front mats had little wet patches on them

i've not used the car since sunday night and it hadn't rained today

where should i be looking for the leaks??

thanks

When you open the doors, do you get water pouring out over the sills?

fluctuation in temperature can cause a lot of cars to steam up - It would also be due to a leak!

Check all carpets but if everything feels dry then I think you're in the clear :)

i checked under all the mats both front and rear, passenger and drivers side. rubbed my hand over the carpet but all felt dry. it may be due to the temperture then, today started quite warm and sunny then went wet and cold. i may be just paranoid :) never noticed it before

I have some silica gel which should hopefully do the same thing. Not quite as cool at the pingi though!
