145/146 Fuse Board

My friend has a 146 1.4TS where the wipers were staying on even though the ignition was turned off. Traced fault to connectors in fuseboard being corroded, water had entered the fuseboard at some stage and caused the damage.
New fuseboard now fitted with silicone injected in each block connector receiver on the fuseboard to ensure no further water ingress but we would still like to know where the water came from and there is no sign of any leak, in fact, the whole area above the fusebaord is pristine and looks brand new.
Anybody traced leaks into this area of a 145/146 before?

I had condensation problems in my (similar) 155. Basically it seems that condensation either on the windscreen running down behind the dash'.. or forming on the metal components around the steering .. were dripping into the fusebox. My wiper relay was shorted as a result.

Sister has same problems in her Megane .. (weird electrics, rather than specifically a wiper problem) but Pierre wrapped the electrics up in a big rubber boot, whereas Alfa is more optimistic and goes bareback..

Might be worth sticking some plastic/foam sheet above the fusebox..
