Alfa Romeo 156

leaking 156

just returned home from Norfolk in torrential rain on M11 to find the drivers side footwells full of water! I've owned my 156 since it was 18months old (it's now 8 years old) and it never leaked before, so I'm baffled why its suddenly started to leak so badly all of a sudden. I just had the 2 rear sections of the exhaust replaced, so going back to the garage next week for them to check they've not done anything.

Anyone else had and cured a leaky 156?

Re: leaking 156

I think from other posts this sort of leak is actually caused by the air conditioning, rather than water coming in from outside of the car ... it's not happened to me and I could be wrong ...

... hope you get this sorted

There is also an issue with external sealing, but i cantfind the post i was looking for the gave a link to the external website with a list of things to look for and where to check.

Use the search function using terms such as water and footwell.
