[QUOTE=roger_roger;3570084]air con pipe? bad welding joints? footwell drain? product recall?
take off the passenger wiper arm and blade. prise off cover on arm to reveal 13mm nut, undo nut and remove wiper arm. (remember the cover might look solid, just push it off with your fingers, it's plastic, not solid and hides the nut)
remove the passenger half of the plastic sill that covers the bottom of windscreen to engine compartment.
3 require a star socket (99p shop) bonnet open.
1 screw has a plastic cover on it that you prise off with a screwdrive and then requires a phillipes screwdriver. bonnet closed.
what you will now see is a bulk head that traps the water, and is almost full of water if you have this problem. there is a drain point roughly in the middle, that empties into the engine compartment. put your hand in there (yes it's cold, wet and full of disgusting stuff) push your finger into the sludgey hole, and you will unblock it. water will spill out.
Hey that's brill I'll try that first!
We have had heavy rain here as normal, though the other day by accident I had left my driver window open overnight. D'oh!
Never done that before!
So it could be left over from that but I have found dripping from inside around the area where the bonnet opening red lever is.

Maybe it is air conditioning?
I have to use it a lot lately as per the weather
But I will try what you are suggesting yes!
I assume it'll be the same deal for the driver side?
My concern is that the plasic cap / wedge covering the screw on the plastic will be a pain to get off without damaging it? How stuck is it? I could get new ones worst case but they'll be a nice new colour and stand out too much lol!
I'll have a look for the bulkhead bit first and stich a pipecleaner or something into the murky depths!
My other thought is that where you have the plastic sill parts below the windscreen where the wipers go into;
where the glass meets the plastic theres a rubber seal that , well isnt too sealed really its loose.
Would that be the cause?
I'll check it out anyways...
